I'm thankful to have eaten cuisine all over the world. I've had better food at backyard shacks in Afghanistan for a tenth the price. I would not be writing this review at all if the manager had been reasonable and willing to have a real...More

First time my husband and I are going to this restaurant in downtown Raleigh. They have very generous small plates for sharing. Very nice fresh ingredients. We started off with the chilled octopus and wok fried brussels sprouts. They were delicious. Next we ordered pork...More

My friend and I went there for her birthday, and were pleasantly surprised. The dishes were all quite different, and all generously portioned. We didn't realize that it was more of a tapas place, but that made the experience even more special.

A mostly white wide open modern floor plan. Start with the meat and cheese plate if that’s your thing. The hanger steak was tender and the fresh green beans were just right. Tapas of all types are available. Service was unremarkable. I have recommended the...More
