Had the bottomless brunch here for a group of 19. They were very accommodating in regards to seating / arranging our large group. The reason why I’m only giving it 2 stars is because I was very disappointed in their slow service! Between our two tables everyone only received 2 (maybe 3 at most) of the orders placed. For a place that offers bottomless brunch at a hefty price of $40 this is unacceptable. I spoke with our server (who was very pleasant throughout the experience) but nothing changed in terms of getting more food out. Would not recommend this place for a party larger than 5

The best deal is a taste of Spain which allows you a one-time charge of $38 for as many small plate topas as you would like. that is a per person cost. The food was good the best now. but good. The meatballs were mediocre the shrimp was tasty the pork belly and vegetables was delicious they didn't have decaf coffee to go with the dessert which was my favorite part of the whole meal it was a churros Sunday

Walker the manager is great! We didn’t like the sangria so he removed it and comped 2 drinks for the inconvenience. Sara was our server, we did brunch, food was good, she was attentive and had an assistant come to our table regularly to remove the small plates and bring more food!

Nothing related to either Pamplona nor Spain. The food is a poor intent to use certain Spanish dish names on Mexican food. Both Spanish and Mexican food on their own are way better than this.

Everything from reservation to sitting to eating and paying was a smooth experience. The ambience and decor is quaint and inviting. The food was delicious menu choices offered the perfect brunch variety. Mimosa carafes were adorable and the staff were very attentive and you could tell they wanted us to get the most out of our experience! The steak & eggs were the most notable during our dining experience!

Opt for the Taste of Spain and thank me later. Best compilation of small plates/tapas I've tasted in awhile. Everything was flavorful and delicious and I'm shouting it from the rooftops. Get a glass of wine or a pitcher of sangria and enjoy!

My friend and I dined here to celebrate my birthday! We had a wonderful time on our tapas, paella, and churros. A huge MUCHAS GRACIAS to Walker (host) and Ever (waiter) who were both awesome -- especially in regards to watching out for my food allergy. When staff goes over and beyond, I really appreciate it.

Great service and nice atmosphere but the food was okay for the price. Sangria wasn’t my favorite, kind of tasted like lemonade. But overall this restaurant is okay.

Great food, excellent service and I really appreciated the steps they are taking to protect everyone from COVID. We had tapas (which were good sized for tapas!) and a terrific wine which, at a 1/2 price special, was even better!

Excellent meatballs, cheese croquettes, patatas bravas
Pan con tomate was a good interpretation of the real ones. Duck paella was tasty - no crispy rice at the bottom. Had some extremely loud groups there which was annoying. Service was very good however
