I was part of a large group who dined here as part of a conference. We had about 40 folks who dined with us on a pre-set menu which consisted of several courses. The staff did a very good job of keeping the courses flowing and the food was quite good. Many restaurants have a hard time with food quality... More

What could be better, sitting out on the patio overlooking the street activity and enjoying some great tapas and paella? Unfortunately the last part didn't work. The setting was terrific and the service all that we could ask for. We ordered three tapas consisting of mushrooms, mussels and chicken. All of them were very tasty and made us happy we... More

Great authentic tapas and entrees, but portions were smaller than prior visits. The Flamenco dancing and guitar was entertaining. Service is always great and the flavors of the foods, wonderful. Prices are medium to high and wish they served a little more for the prices.

Not enough staff to cover the very few tables occupied on Tuesday evening @ 7pm. Service is split between those who take orders, those who just serve food and those who bring wAter and bread. Should work just fine with enough staff but with only one person to take/correct orders in the restaurant we felt abandoned. We certainly couldn't get... More

The flamenco dancer was remarkable and the highlight of the evening. Food was consistently very good, including generous paellas. Beautiful setting, great for large groups (I was part of a party of ten).

Atmosphere and Service = 5 star Entertainment = 4 star Pricing of food = 3 star Food itself = 2 star So...I've spent quite a bit of time in Spain, even living there full time for over a year, and have tried and tried to find a place in Phoenix to get an authentic paella.

Four of us dined on a Friday night. It was cold outside, so we skipped the beautiful patio with view of the canal and ate inside. The restaurant is festive and interesting, with a warm ambiance. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. Two of us had the $45 fixed price meal which included pretty much one piece per person of 6... More

Had a delightful dinner with a party of 8 on the side porch. Dishes were delicious, but like all tapas the bill can add up very quickly especially with a big party. The prices seem reasonable but the portions are so tiny, you need to keep ordering more. The patio with music and fire pit going are beautifully romantic and... More

Much to our delight, we obtained a spacious corner table. The mezquita arches and live flamenco band were distinctly Spanish. Our server was most definitely a native of Peninsular Spain, but not at all welcoming. The cerdo (pork tenderloin), tortilla española (potato omelette), and gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp) were fantastic. The jamón serrano (the staple of Spanish tapas) was... More
