It was our first time here. It always seems busy, so we thought we would try it. They had a happy hour going on that included half-price appetizers and a sangria special. It was a really nice introduction to their menu! We only had the...More

We went with a group of 8 adults. The restaurant is very noisy. No real conversations can be had here. They moved us to a secluded part of restaurant, which triggered an automatic 20% tip and 20% service charge. Food is about $8-15 per serving...More

There's a lot on the menu but I wasn't very impressed. The Spanish tortilla is served cold which made me think of breakfast. The croquetas were tasty but few per order. Overall it was pricey and underwhelming.

Next to Trader Joe's and a good place to stop and get a tapas lunch. We split a tapas plate with four different types and also split a small side salad and had a cup of soup of steak, potato and peas. The tapas were...More

Excellent meal and service. Overall a great experience. The two of us shared four tapas and had plenty to eat. The fried artichoke hearts and the shrimp were my favorites. Our waiter was extremely helpful in explaining the different options. I highly recommend this place.

I really prefer the food on the boulevard BUT, having said that, I really dislike the acoustics on the boulevard. You can't even have a conversation with people at your own table. So when I want tapas I dine in Leawood.

Tapas -- In the beginning. Tapas is a daily event in the life of the Spanish culture. Mainly a Northern Spain, Basque regional tradition, it has grown to signify a way of eating and socializing. It is said that tapas originated centuries ago. In Spanish, the word tapa or the verb tapar means "to cover." Tapas represents the Spanish custom of placing a piece of bread over the glass of wine. It is a custom that dates back past the 1500's. Traditionally, the exact food served is less important than the social occasion. It signifies leisure, camaraderie and good humor. In Spain, Tapas are almost always accompanied by wine. The wine is the medium that holds the conversation with friends and the food together. You make time to enjoy the moment in an unhurried way. The threefold purpose of snacking on tapas is to dull any hunger pangs that have built up since the previous intake of comestibles, to whet the appetite for the next, and to stimulate sociability, at which the Spanish excel.
