I was just roaming in Tampa downtown with a buddy of mine; I was not hungry but when i looked at this place and got curious. It turned out to be a good experience, there was a live band. Staff is friendly and service was good. Food is worth trying, the portions are great to have.

We came in around 6 pm on a Saturday and they have music show starting at 8. Not sure whether it was the reason but the whole experience was a little off. There wasn't anything specific that was wrong, but for some reason the meal felt a little rushed. We ordered 3 tapas to try. We liked one odds them... More

We had a 8 pm reservation Saturday night, no one bother to let us know the place was rented at 10 pm for a private event, we had to rush eat (wine+appetizer+paella) in about 45 minutes. We went there with some friends planning to enjoy the night/live music and ended up taking food home in boxes, very disappointed :(

Mushy octopus, weird decor/vibe, rookie waitstaff. Seating uncomfortable. Delish shrimp appetizer. Live music was nice. Limited wine menu.

The food was delicious, the staff was attentive, and the live music was wonderful. Highly suggest the patatas bravas. Not a traditional style but super tasty

I have been eating lunch here for many years , if you want great spanish food this is the best in downtown without a doubt. The food is all good but my favorite is the roast pork, yellow rice. Try it you'll be back.

Went in with hubby and our niece. Our niece had been there before and suggested tapas. We enjoyed Croquettes, Empanadas, and a spicy octopus with red potatoes. Best sangria I've had in years! There was also an art showing of various young artists, and the paintings were amazing! Halfway through our meal a three-piece band came in and played beautiful... More

We had drinks at the bar, some of the best cocktails we have had in Tampa, handcrafted and carefully balanced drinks. Our drinks were served by bartenders that were exhausted from a long day's work, but still friendly and welcoming. This was a post dinner stop, but we still ordered octopus tapas, which I loved, but others complained had too... More

We went to this restaurant on the 24th december. The staff is very polite and professional. The food was okay , nothing exceptional for this price. I ordered Paella, the ingredients were very good but the rice was tasteless, definitely not a typical european/spanish paella.
