We decided to try this tapas bar and compare to others we have dined before. The white and red sangria were very refreshing, white was fairly sweet, we enjoyed the red. We ordered mostly seafood dishes and was hoping to see more selection of vegetable dishes. The paella rice dish was not very flavorable however the rice was very good with the spicy shrimp. It would be nice also to see some seared seafood dishes in the future.

Met an old friend here for a few drinks and some tapas after work. Food was fine, drinks were so-so, and service was glacial, but we didn't care

When we got there they did not have our reservation.
Only table left was communal tables. That was not what I wanted
For my husbands birthday dinner! Plus the hostess stated "I do not get those
Reservation very often in my computer!

This is one of my regular venues for entertaining clients. If the weather is nice the patio is great and very relaxed. Overall the food never disappoints and I have never had a lackluster dish there. The gambas a la diabla (shrimp in spice sauce) and queso de cabra con nuez (cabragoat cheese over tomato, topped with toasted walnuts, dried figs & honey) are two of the better tapas’ I have had.

Just awful on every front! I could have done better picking up items from the HEB deli! The servers stood around the bar groping each other and watching football. A terrible experience-- We couldn't get out fast enough!

This place has to work in getting better service people . Food, drinks, ambiance, crowd, location is very good. Unfortunately waiters/bartenders are the front door of a restaurant, and they should be the first in trying for the customer to have an outstanding experience. In this place, in the 5 times I have been there, it has not.
