    The octopus and the shrimp were amazing. Tapas were awesome except for the croquettes. They were cold inside, like frozen and fried. Drinks are good though.

    The food in general was good. I'm very picky with Paella and I've certainly have had better paellas elsewhere. The rest of the tapas were very tasty. My two main complaints: 1. The outdoor chairs were very uncomfortable, either get cushions for them or get better chairs. By the end of the meal, I had to keep shifting in my seat. 2. The music, ugh. You can do so much better. First it was too loud but more annoyingly, it was an unending playlist of mostly reggaeton. This is a supposed to be a restaurant featuring the delicious food of Spain, so whose's bright idea was it to pair this with reggaeton?? Spain has a large collection of great music, with diverse genres. Do a little homework and improve the ambiance with better music selection. Please!

    Octupus was horrible, no tender at all and nothing related to gallega recipe. Coquetas and pintxo were ok. Iberico ham was good. Waitress was not familiar with the menu/products

    Food is ok. The server is attentive and good. The host took us in and let us sit at the table in bad area. She saved the nice table to the people came after us. 😞 We will not come back.

    We sat out side, good atmosphere and music. Tapas were delicious and cocktails were amazing. The service though wasn't bad or good. We placed our order of four tapas, after ten minutes we get just one of the tapas, later our plates got cleared out by a different server even that we were waiting for more food. About 15-20 min later we get checked by our server and realised that the rest of the plates were not sent to the kitchen yet and she apologized and we got the rest of our food fairly quick. I guess I am glad that things were taken care of eventually but me and fiance were really confused about the service.
