You won't be sorry! Excellent and authentic. They even have rabbit paella! Not a long wine list, but almost exclusively Spanish, with Riojas featured prominently at a good value. A must try!
For the money, you didn't get nearly the good you should have. 4 small prawns for $16. The brussel sprouts were something my mom would make as a child and not something I'd order at a restaurant.
Very noisy! Food was fine, but hard to have a conversation, even at window seat.
Of 86 restaurants that we have eaten at and rated in San Francisco, this one got the lowest rating. The food was subpar and the five dishes that we ordered literally came out in 10 minutes all at the same time, making me think that maybe these had been microwaved. The food was not flavorful at all. We ordered the brussels sprouts, octopus, shrimp, and lamb – and none of the dishes stood out.
The staff were very attentive and the restaurant looks very nice, they need to really up their game in terms of food.
Great location. Great staff. The food is good.
Amazing rabbit paella! Very authentic. Small plates were small enough to enjoy multiples.
The lamb chop was fantastic. The chocolate dessert came with olive oil, which seemed a bit superfluous, but everything else was delicious.
This restaurant was very quiet with excellent service and the Tapas were exquisitely tasty and excellent in presentation. For vegetarians and meat lovers alike, the varied menu provided excellent and varied selections!!
Excellent in price too!!
Good location to meet friends - Bar service and selection was excellent, while Tapas menus fell a little flat with quality & short on value vs portions....
Good food, service and ambiance but the prices are outrageous for tapas. This place will probably fail. You can’t charge $15 for half a chicken breast...
