Friends and I had no target restaurant or cuisine for lunch after shopping. When we passed by the little Spanish restaurant, it was attracted by the menu and the price. When we we went to inside, it was cozy and with beautiful wall decoration. The food were delicious especially for fried fish and squid. They were wonderful. It was absolutely... More

Just down the road from Thapae Gate, this small Spanish restaurant offers a nice selection of well-prepared food, included good vegetarian options. The paella was tasty with fresh seafood and traditional Spanish rice and the tapas were flavorful and well presented. The cheaper house red wine is not very good, but it was a nice break from Thai food.

My wife doesn't like Asian food and finding an alternative for her is often a challenge. This little gem on the cusp between the old town and night market areas was ideal for a lovely afternoon lunch with a bottle of vino tinto.

We wanted to have Spanish food. So we found this good reviewed restaurant on-line and decided to try it. Not so disappointed, considering the choices you have in Chiang Mai. The food is okay (with not much selection of tapas),Sangria is good. The price is right. When we were there, we were the only table in the whole place,... so... More

I had read the reviews and was certain we would get a good tapas...unfortunately this wasn't true. Some of the food was lush ,like the chilli prawns,Catalan custard....the pork and goats cheese was good too. But the patatas bravas was not good and the balsamic that covered my salad was awful and the batter used on the calamari wasn't great.... More
