You'll be tempted by the tapas at this Streeterville eatery, from the team behind Emilio's Tapas (other location is in Hillside). Our name means sun and snow, and we serve a wide range of hot and cold Spanish choices, including grilled shrimp with garlic lemon butter sauce, baked goat cheese in tomato sauce, paella, among other fabulous tapas. The wine list features more than 60 choices, many available by the glass. The restaurant features colorful murals, tile mosaics and iron light fixtures. During summer, the patio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy great tapas and sangria.

Tapas was great. The paella was just ok. The seafood was a tad overdone and I longed for more saffron

Went here for our 5-year anniversary. Excellent food, great red wine sangria, and kind/attentive waitstaff. I come here at least twice a year and am never disappointed.

Found this in the area we were staying. They took our party of eight easily. Tapas based - the food was exceptional. We tried a variety of plates and then each had a main course. For sure try the bacon wrapped dates. Some of the dishes are on the spicy side so if that is not your thing be sure to ask.

There were a range of specials which several in our party ordered. They were all excellent.

The service was friendly and attentive. The staff were very professional.

This would be a great place for business events in addition to private events and ideas I lived in Chicago would frequent it on a regular basis. I will bring my family here some day.

Our server Luis was amazing! Very helpful in describing the dishes, super quick both the server and the actual cooking, and accommodating for our first tapas experience. Super quiet and friendly on a Friday night. Wish I had room to try more! Great specials daily.

Generally good experience, but they need to let food rest before serving it. A couple dishes were WAY too hot. Bacon wrapped dates burned my date's mouth. Also got the order wrong, which is a bit frustrating. But it was resolved quickly. Food tastes great, though.

Very authentic Spanish food, delicious, fresh, beautifully prepared and presented. The calamari and shrimp were cooked just right and seasoned lightly, just to enhance their natural flavours. The potatoes dish, the chick pea dish (a delicious version of houmous) and the cured meat and cheese platter were all fabulous, but the baked goat cheese was the star. Would definitely recommend this place.
