My wife and I were visiting our son and he introduced us to this outstanding new restaurant in Newton Centre!!! There is on-street parking and a city parking lot within a block away from the restaurant. The restaurant is somewhat small (700 square feet and 20 seats) and we were lucky to get seated after a short wait as we... More

Everything from the appetizer to the desert was excellent! Tuna tartare type atmosphere was wonderful but the grilled octopus that my friend got was really unique served in a stew-like dish with sausage and beans. I have never had octopus before and this was a standout dish for the taste and originality. I had a tasty steak for the main... More

Great vibe. The feel is very urban and the bar in particular is small but really fun. Menu is limited but quite good.

This is a small restaurant. Reservations at prime time are a must. The bar....innovative cocktails with exotic ingredients that are 1-2 dollars more than the run of the mill but well worth it. Wine list is small but adequate but if you are limiting your alcohol, have a cocktail. You won't be disappointed. The menu is not extensive but there... More

Some of the best food I've ever had. We loved EVERYTHING. Swordfish was excellent, scallops as well. For appetizer we had the yellowin and the pumpkin soup- so so delicious. Service was phenomenal and that bread- just wish they wouldn't bring so much of it :) Absolutely nothing negative to say. Definitely the best restaurant in the area. Highly recommended.... More

Small place with very friendly service. We had some chorizo croquettes as appetizer which were excellent and a board of meats which we shared among three people and was plenty. All in all nice experience and good value for the money

Picking from the appetizer list and a seafood stew that turned out wonderful, tasty and easy to share. We also tried the Escabeche, Croquettas, Lettuce Salad and Tomato Soup and they were all fresh and well seasoned. We finished with the Lemon Cake and too bad they did not have expresso. Interesting wines as well make for a fun and... More

Was lucky to get a seat at the bar (solo) for a quick bite and beer. Place was packed as usual. Apps were great.

Very popular, busy restaurant seemingly full of "regulars". On a Saturday night we arrived one hour earlier than our reservation. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming. Sitting at the bar unsure of whether to wait or not, the hostess informed us of a cancellation and we had a delicious dinner of their pork special.
