Wow the chorizo stuffed dates wrapped in bacon were life. We were disappointed in the Market fish presentation, cost and taste. The calamari were very chewy. The ambiance and service were wonderful.

Amazing burger! Went to try the limited special they had which was a burger and patatas bravas and they did not disappoint. I normally go to have their tapas and was very impressed with how well made their burgers actually were.

The service was seriously lacking. When we had a problem with the octopus dish being the chewiest piece of octopus I’ve ever had with a off taste. The server did nothing to rectify the situation. Not to mention forgetting one of our dishes all together. Needless to say for the price this place isn’t worth it.

We have been to Bulla many times and it ever disappoints. The service is great, food always tastes good, and it’s always a good experience. Drink prices have definitely gone up recently but other than that no complaints.

It was my first time there and our waiter Cyrus was great! Friendly, attentive, and gave good recommendations. The chicken and waffles wasn't the best but everything we tried was good.

Tappas and sangria were both amazing. The paella was incredibly salty and disappointing. Spanish food has an abundance of flavor .... that much salt is not required. Otherwise a great experience.

The place is very nice and the food is good. However, the service was bad. Our waiter forgot that we ordered a paella, and we had to wait over an hour for it. The waiter then forgot one of our drinks, which we ordered after the paella mistake. The waiter didn’t apologize or try to make it up.

special menu-advertised short ribs were not available at all, the caldoso rice was rather salty (even to my dining partner who has a heavy hand with salt) but the waiter didn't even care to listen to this remark. This didn't eclipse the overall experience, however. Definitely recommend trying this place!

Went out for a birthday brunch, we sat outside. Food was ok in my view. Bigger servings is my thing. The appetizer was really small for nearly $10. The Ham croquettes. Should be $4. Drinks were good 👍🏽

The food was great, but the charcuterie board fell way short of expectations and value. The ingredients on the bord we not interesting or unique. I expected ingredients to "wow" me and create a new experience. It felt like eating cold cuts and cheese. Please put more effort into the ingredients and the presentation. Thanks!

Somos españoles y varios sabores nos pudieron teletransportan allí...la comida estuvo riquísima.
Llegamos antes de tiempo y enseguida nos sentaron sin problema!
Si algo mejoraría seria la presencia de algunos camareros y el uso correcto de la mascarilla....el aire acondicionado estaba condensado y el suelo y las mesas estaba algunas mojadas...eso si! Nos acomodaron en una mejor enseguida...
Volveremos...por la comida volveremos 👌🏼

I decided on coming to Bulla after some friends had recommended it to me. The staff was amazing and prompt, always available and checking in with us. The social distancing was great and very comfortable/safe. The only downside of the dining experience was the actual food. While nothing was wrong with it, the flavor and quality should be better in terms of the scale and cost. I’ve had better drinks, croquettes and burgers elsewhere for less or same price. Will try again for happy hour as that was what was originally suggested by friends!
