Outstanding and timely service. Always on point but not pressuring. Food is excellent. Sausage, beef, seafood, and vegetarian dishes all excellent. White sangria is the best.

I stopped here for lunch on my way to The National Portrait Gallery. The atmosphere was great. Wait staff friendly and accommodating. The grilled lamb sandwich with soup were delicious.

A wonderful respite from the spring break tourist crowds in DC; we took their tag line “lunch like a Spaniard” to heart with gusto. The croquetas were the best I’ve ever had; papas frites, gambas (shrimp with garlic) and mussels were all amazing. Fun decor and vibe

Our party was able to sample about 15 dishes and 4 desserts. It’s so much fun to share this experience with friends. More people, more things to try! I loved everything. The gentleman that waited on us made wonderful selections for us when we were unsure. You don’t need to order all at once. Start with a few things than order a few more. Reorder what you love. You go at your own pace. I think the dessert course was my favorite. I usually order a big dessert that I later regret. Just a taste is the best way to end a meal. I have already recommended this place to a friend who is visiting next month
