Nice restaurant in old town. We sat at the bar and ordered appetizers. They were just ok. Sangria was good - lots to choose from. Bartender was very friendly - great service made up for the lack of excitement in food.

Tasty tapas, good selection and portions, great happy hour deals, and many different types of sangria to choose from. We had a table next to the bar and had great service. Our only disappointment is that we missed the flamenco show.

If you like Spanish style tapas this is the place to go. The service was wonderful and the tapas were delicious. And by the way the sangria was pretty tasty too! We missed the live music as we were there early but the ambiance was very nice. Try it out!

We stopped in on a whim while strolling around King St. It was early, and the dining room was pretty empty. So we were seated immediately. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. My husband and I ordered a variety of tapas to share & a 1/2 pitcher of the Cadillac Sangria. Our tapas included the following:...

Delicious! The food, ambience, and service were good and reasonably priced. I had the Paella Mixta, which was better than all the paellas I've had in Spanish restaurants in my travels throughout Spain. In addition to that, I had a salad with shrimp and an ice tea. The whole meal ended up costing me less than $20. The service was... More

Only went for Happy Hour, but they have great sangria and drink specials as well as tapas. The chicken and ham croquettes were delicious! Busy place, but nice for a fun night out.

Friendly. Wide selection of sangrias. And a great bang for your peso. We ordered three tapas and the size of each was bigger than anticipated. Good mussels!
