Enjoyed several tapas with a sherry flight. Highlight was the serrano/melon plate. Superfresh sweet melon slices with high grade ham. Highlight #2 was the special rockfish ceviche. Fresh local fish with just the right lime, heat and tortilla chips. Had a stone fruit salad, flat...More

Belle of the Ball cocktail with vodka, basil, bell pepper, lime and cadamaro was as delicious as it was unusual. Tempura eggplant small plate was fair but Papas bravas, purple majesty potatoes, piquillo pepper sauce, aioli, and rosemary sea salt was a hit. Fish of...More

This a restaurant where one should go for appetizers and then consider an alternative for dinner. The wine list is small but well selected with nothing more than $69. That particular wine is a very good rioja riserva from 2005. The first course selection is...More

Barcelona-inspired tapas and main courses, very well-prepared and presented. Delicious flavors, some very spicy. Excellent service. Sweet neighborhood vibe. Only negative is the noise bomb, as all diners had to shout to be heard, even with intimate tables for two. Otherwise an excellent dinnter.
