    The food was excellent and came out quickly. We had a great time, but I took a star off because we were charged an extra $32 on the bill for things we were told would be complimentary. I called back and they were able to refund the money to my card, but it was a bit frustrating.

    Enjoyed a fabulous Birthday dinner with my family! We ordered a little bit of everything and every bite was delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the timing of each tapas was perfect. We will definitely be back

    Great food, great drinks, and great service. The small plates are a nice size to share with a few people and are a good way to try a lot. Would definitely recommend the albondigas.

    All the food was amazing. Loved the outdoor patio. Nice and quiet. It’s great when you can share and get more things to try. Loved everything. Paella was especially good as were the empanadas and pork dish. Crab stuffed peppers also really good.

    Nice restaurant. Was not used to tapas style service so in future will order differently. We ordered all items at same time and they all arrived at table at same time. Next time will order and ask that they be spaced out for a more leisurely meal.

    Everything that my daughter and I had was delicious. The drinks were wonderful as well. Everyone that we came into contact with was amazing and so nice. I had seen where people complained about the noise level but I didn’t think the level was loud when you understand the type of restaurant you are going to. If it was a restaurant that was considered what people call fine dining, of course it would be loud. This is not that type of atmosphere. I am not complaining by any means, I am defending it with that statement. We loved it and will be back for certain.

    Very good first visit. We enjoyed all of the varied items we ordered, especially the special Croquetas de Bacalao (salted cod), which we ordered twice. Our experienced server Patrick was very busy, but our service was appropriately attentive throughout. Great job! Parking is very easy behind the restaurant, and no charge if you depart after 7 PM. In all, a very nice experience, and we will be back.

    Experience was overall fine. Would not encourage me to come back for an additional visit though. Our server was friendly but seemingly new to the role (that or maybe we caught her on an off day). She was friendly, but did not handle checks well and seemed a little flustered. Understood, but for a large party (8 total), the check splitting should be discussed well before time to disperse to avoid guests waiting. I'm patient. My guests were not. Also, the restaurant was uncomfortably warm. I could not stay sitting as I was sweating while sitting in the booth. BUT-- the food was good, decently priced. The drink (Manhattan) was okay, a little more pulp from the orange than I anticipated. Others should still go give this place a visit, I just don't frequent Durham often enough to reconsider instead of exploring new options.
