My partner and I came for dinner on a Sunday night which was Paella night. Wow amazing food and great value set menu. The Paella packed full of seafood and they offered a veggie option. Will return again soon.

Didn't have tapas on a long time, and wasn't disappointed at all. Pork cheek and gambas are a favorite. Great cocktails and above and beyond service from the staff and the owner. Must go!

This meal was the highlight of our recent sailing trip. If you like the flavors of Spanish cooking and you appreciate traditional tapas cooked with great local ingredients, you will love this restaurant. Everything we tried (and that was most of the dishes) was delicious....More
