Delicious food and very accommodating of vegan diets. They’ll mark up a menu for you so you know exactly what you can and cannot eat. Plenty of options for meat-eaters too. And the bread is amazing!

My husband and were terribly impressed with this authentic tapas restaurant. Service was helpful and enthusiastic. We sat outside and enjoyed the relative quiet there. So many menu choices! Our favorite was the grilled corn with cheese. Unreal!
