My husband and I were in the Newport-Irvine area at lunchtime, and came upon this gem of a restaurant. We ate on the outdoor patio because it was such a nice day, and the interior was dark. We had a nice fountain next to our table, but note that you will hear the noise of little planes at nearby John... More

This is a quiet restaurant near the Fairmont Newport Beach Hotel (5 minute walk). Great tapas with lots and lots of variety. Good drinks - the bonus was the dancers - they were very good and very entertaining. Made our night! Thanks

Food was very good and a nice selection but if you are expecting food like you get in Spain you might be a little disappointed. Excellent service and atmosphere. The sangria was excellent and had a little kick to it

This restaurant/nite club had Flamenco dancers early on (around 9) and then an excellent live salsa band at 10, didn't eat there. The place could stand to be redecorated but otherwise nice

My wife and I stumbled across this outstanding restaurant and Latin dance club thanks to the sleuth work of the concierge at our nearby hotel. It is actually right next to Irvine, far from the beach and perhaps why we had not heard of it, although they have been in business for 18 years. This place claims to be the... More

Best way to describe this restaurant is "authentic" it truly is a flavor of Spain, there is nothing like it. I have been there a handful and highly recommend it.

Four of us dined. We appear at the entrance 20-30 after opening, and find the door locked. We weren't sure of the entrance, so walked to the other end. Found a back kitchen door open and holler in for somebody. Ask them if the are open, to which he said yes, then tell him the front door is locked. Hmm,... More

Going like a Spaniard which is later in the evening gave me the chance to see the music and dancing. Both the steak and fish were very good too, but the ambiance and service, made it really nice. Definitely worth a try.

Went with friends but the food was not that tasty and the water I got had some black stuff which was trying to settle down on the bottom. The place was deserted and not well maintained. There might be better places around.
