The restaurant was quite lively on our Thursday evening visit, which made the dining room somewhat noisy and hard to hear. The sangria was delicious. The first Gimlet came with a great basil taste; the second one was lacking and it was hard to find the basil at all. The hummus spread was yummy. Goat cheese with tomato sauce was a perfect accompaniment to the bread. The artichoke crostini was a bit messy to eat but was definitely worth it! The scallops in saffron sauce was the least successful dish as the sauce seemed watery and devoid of flavor. The churros with chocolate ganache dipping sauce were excellent! Cappuccinos were good. Overall, a pleasant dinner and an enjoyable evening.

Been here so many times when entertaining visiting colleagues. Usually we tell the waiter to get us a good set of tapas and leave it to him to mix it up. We have never been disappointed - everything from the garlic shrimp to baby lamb chops with an apricot glaze to paellas are mouth watering. And of course, the sangrias.

Went there for dinner. Didn't want to eat a lot, but wanted to taste some different things.
I loved the ceviche:tilapia and shrimp. We had wild mushrooms, artichokes, salmon with goat cheese, a salad, stuffed poblano. It was really good. Can't talk to the rest of the menu. The sangria was OK, not great. Would've done better with a draft beer. And, we didn't eat a lot. That was the best part.

Visited with colleagues for evening tapas. Came away very impressed with the shrimps (sizzling) and the lamb in particular, but there were no bad dishes here.

Service was prompt and attentive without being over-bearing. Overall superb food, good service - what more could you want?

The menu is varied. The dishes are well prepared and fresh. Very good for a crowd so you can try many more dishes
