Overall, the food is really good. There was a wedding party when we entered the restaurant and I believe the wait staff was a bit overwhelmed. We had to ask two or three times for bread,
My dining partners would have liked a larger selection as far as desserts such as
tres leches, flan, etc.

Terrific Spanish food, warm
Terrific Spanish food, warm and welcoming staff, fun flamenco music. We were stuck between flights at JFK, with too little time to get home to Manhattan -- had a wonderful time.

Fresh n delicious food
Almost did not eat here after making reservations. The atmosphere has a lot to be desired but we had come all the way from brookyn meeting friends coming from JFK so we decided to stay (the A displayed in window convince us)
Turns out we forgot about the atmosphere because the service and food were wonderful. Waitress was very helpful. 3 of us had piaya and one had pork chop. Great choice along with deliciously warm dessert.
If I could give one tip to the restaurant ... Clean the glass of your windows and door. It would make a world of difference to the "squeamish " !

So Pleasantly Surprised
My mom lives in Brooklyn and we needed a place to go for her birthday dinner. We didn't want to have to Downtown Brooklyn or to Manhattan. The goal was to go local. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful.

A+ Tapas Near JFK
This charming little spot in Howard Beach doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it's welcoming and intimate. The food is delicious and creative, and the service is excellent. Special kudos to our waiter Ghavin, who was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We especially enjoyed the grilled baby calamari, the littleneck clams with chorizo, and the bacon wrapped scallops with wild mushroom risotto. The seafood paella was a bit bland (some would say subtle) after the amazing and flavorful tapas, but a huge portion with lots of seafood and fine for someone who does not want intense flavors. There was a nice wine list, not too expensive, and plentiful free parking.
