I contacted this restaurant in the middle of December trying to find a table for 4 for New Year's Eve. I didn't have much hope but received a very friendly email telling me they were full and the best they could offer was my name on a waiting list. I thanked them but said we probably needed something definite. The... More

We were at this restaurant around the same time last year and we loved it and since we were back in Bonn wanted to revisit the place. The menu looked the same and we ordered the exact same tapas as one year ago. Whilst the service was excellent, the food was not so, especially compared with our previous visit. At... More

Nice atmosphere and friendly service with good english. Seafood was very fresh and we enjoyed our first fresh seafood meal since leaving NZ. Poor waitress spilt or beer but she was so nice and apologetic felt sorry for her. We want to go back.

This is the best Spanish restaurant in the whole area which I know. You can have a classic paella or high class dishes with a variety of everything from land and sea. The vines are top notch. The service is very charming and friendly.

Do not arrive without reservation! Waiter at entrance very impolite when asking if I have booked... No interest shown in saying how long to wait.. A place I will definitely not return.

We were on a Friday evening and had a wonderful experience. Authentic Spanish dishes and the food was tasty. Service was impeccable. Restaurant is very clean. Will be back when in Bonn again.

We found this great little place through some local friends who actually had their wedding here, and have fallen in love with it. The chef is Portuguese and fantastic and his wife and brother both work in the restaurant. The service is always excellent. They remember you when you return. The fresh fish and oysters are always my favorite. The... More
