After a long day walking around in Tokyo, I stopped at this place for a meal. Found it a little bit expensive for the small amount of food. One of the ingredients was missing for the dish I ordered, the waitress apologized, but that was it. The food itself was not bad, but also not anyting special, especially after comparing... More

The food is not Spanish. It is an interpretation of Catalan which likes flavor or passion. The staff seems to not want to be there, which is unusual in Japan. A bit lazy, slow, and obnoxious, which never adds to the experience. Japanese owned local shops with chefs who have trained in Spain provide better quality of food preparation, better... More

This place has great ambience and good service though I could see they were short handed with only two waiters. The food was not outstanding. Most disappointed when we ordered the quail, it was literally small and boney. Overall for the price we paid we could have gotten much better food elsewhere.

A great restaurant if you look for Italian tapas! They serve a great variety of different and very tasty tapas. The servers are very attentive and kind and offer service in basic English.

If you are a fan of Spanish food, do not go to this place. We have tried some paellas and sangrias ... looks like rice with some seafood on top and juice with red wine. The bill for two was JPY 7000, what is expensive for a regular lunch.

Great location! Check this place out for a Catalan/Spanish lunch set, with salad and an appetizer for only around ¥1000. There's almost always Paella as one of the three options.

Oh dear, a prime location a decent setting, pretty good beverage menu but the main event, the food, was painfully rubbish. It feels as if the chef or the menu creator has well and truly fell out of love with food and is content with producing substandard Spanish fair that is an insult to the Spanish cuisine. Typically summed up... More

The food is average here, no complaints other than the price (900 yen for a tiny sandwich). They have some good wines by the glass. When we came, my husband had two beers and a tapa, and the staff still insisted both of us had to order something, even though the place was not full at all. I have come... More

It felt a bit weird to be eating tapas in Tokyo, but this restaurant had seats and we were hungry, so we did. It was a good choice, as the food was great: ham croquettes, bacalao, tortilla and huevos rancheros - all really good, and with two beers and a glass of Cava ¥5832. The service was also good.

Tokyo sometimes overwhelms travelers with too many choices for restaurants / izakaya / bars / lounges. My wife and I are always on the hunt for a relaxing space for good food, good drinks, good company, and good service. We found it here.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
