A wonderful experience from start to finish. The food was outstanding. Delectable Spanish delicacies which are far removed from the mass produced "tapas" as we know it served in other restaurants. The presentation of the food was 5 star, the taste even better. The wine selection and pairings were well chosen and guided by the very helpful staff. The restaurant... More

From start to finish great and welcoming service! Our sommelier for the evening was e very charming lady from the US who knew her wines! She turned this evening into a delicious food and wine fest! We tried some a la carte but also the chef's tapa menu, we can recommend both. The restaurant location is just outside of the... More

The food was not inspired. The seats were far too close together so every time the waiter passed my husband was disturbed. When the PIN went down we missed our transport connection. I informed staff it might be hospitable if they informed the other guests I was ignored. A unfortunately an all too typical reaction of greedy proprietors.

Great little restaurant in the small town of Heemstede, the Netherlands, located in a former garage used by "sand and gravel" drivers. The choices are easy: select your own tapas or have yourself surprised by the chefs choice. We opted to have ourselves surprised, which appeared to be a good choice. In a relaxed atmosphere, we were served a variety... More

This is a lovely place to eat (I am not that charmed about the interior) but the food was really good. We had a tapas surprise menu and it was more than I expected 6 courses with really suprising food and some authentic tapas. really a joy to eat here and you feel more than welcome by the staff.

Good selection of popular tapas with a modern twist. Besides the tapas, traditional spanish dishes are recreated and fused with other cuicines. Chef Alvaro Santiago gives a meaning to each component of the dish, good balance great presentation. One negative note, some wines are just a bit to expensive for their quality, i think they need to work on that

The gazpacho was excellent and the patatas bravas and kroketjes tasty as well, Iberico spare ribs and seafood all very interesting dishes. The Spanish wine was great and the deserts surprising in their mix of different flavors.... More

Nice cosy spot in Heemstede. Friendly service and delicious food all the way. Authentic Spanish cuisine. Attention to details, well presented. A bit of a shame they didn't have or seem to know what "melocotón" juice was, which would have just like being in Spain but instead could only offer the regular orange or apple juice. Exotic colourful decor. Being... More
