Spanish food with pretty large portions and daily specials. Service is quite slow when the place fills up and seating is tight. I had the fish of the day which was very good with a large salad included. We also had the fried calamari for...starters.More

Top quality food with good ingredients and generous portions. Knowledgable and professional waiters helped decide based on our preferences. We speak Spanish so the conversation was easy. True to Spanish style and flavours

The food is amazing I have to say. Try the jamón crudo a la manera Tancat. Very tasty and have a wine of Malbec next to it. Then also the pasta with shrimp was amazing. The service was a bit slow but it is acceptable....Make sure you double check your reservation.More

Not a bad expeience. Had shrimp & langostines over a bed of caramelized onions and a couple of baskets of bread. Food was good, service also. Would I go out of my way to re-visit? Probably not, but not because I had a bad experience,...rather that there are many more spots one can visit and have a good meal.More

One of the more expensive restaurants in the areas, but compared to US prices, incredibly reasonable. Went with a group, all food was good— I completely forgot what mine was called, maybe torta hispañola, but it was very yummy. Our group also had pasta with...red sauce, and seafood paella, which was good, heavy on the seafood. If you do not like seafood generally, this is likely not a place for you, very few options did not have seafood. The sangria was fantabulous. Would recommend. Nice ambiance as well— great place if your looking for a slightly nicer meal, and/or Spanish cuisineMore

Busy friendly bar / small restaurant. I ordered merluza. It was served almost immediately - a bad sign - and was little more than a cold mush.

Another favorite Iñaki was closed so we went to another Spanish restaurant. Food was so good that I went back again in less than a week and was not disappointed. Had the Spanish octopus the first time and Saffron rice and seafood, garlic shrimp plus...the sweet roasted red peppers. Both times had the crema Catalan. Cannot wait to go again.More

Being from Madrid, this restaurant does not serve good authentic Spanish food. Risotto was undercooked. Salads should not have dressing mixed in. Bread was not fresh and tasted like they were from days ago.

It worked out well for us as this place was near our hotel and the food was good at a reasonable price. We do not know anything about Spanish food but we did enjoy the food here.

We dined here before booking reservations for 2 couples. The service was excellent, food delicious and our table-booth was perfect. However, on Wednesday - August 20, 2019, we booked reservations for 3 for 8:00 pm because the 4th person was ill. When we arrived a...half hour eary - there was only 1 couple and a child in the restaurant. We asked for a booth but the hostess refused and pointed us to a table in the back that was near the toilets (banos) & another table that was so close to the bar - there was hardly any elbow room for us. She (the hostess was incredibly inflexible and terribly rude. The hostess ruined what would have been a special anniversary celebration.More
