We went there on a Saturday night, early because we were going to a show afterwards. The place was filling up slowly but steadily. The decor is modern and clean, with large windows and an entire wall where each tapa is listed with its price. Though the place is not small, the noise level is low, even with open windows. The staff is courteous and friendly, the wine list is varied and many of the wines are offered by the glass, with the possibility of tasting before committing, which I love.
I had a perky rosé, my companions had beer, a glass of sturdy Tempranillo and a Chardonnay, which needed to be changed because it turned out to be "bouchonné". The waiter immediately brought a new bottle and all was well. There is a small dish of tiny fries on the table to help you wait for the meal as well as delicious olive oil and fresh bread, so that's an extra treat.
The dishes are not as big as regular servings but neither are they small. We ordered on average 2 tapas per person and that left some room for dessert. The price of tapas varies between 5 and 25$, so depending on your tastes and your hunger, and whether you drink alcohol or not your bill will vary quite a bit.
We equally loved the leeks, cooked to perfection and served with a Xeres vinaigrette and a topping of avocado, and the mushrooms served with a poached egg on the side and a sauce both tangy and buttery. The tapa of the month was fresh anchovies a white beans purée, apparently delicious too.The garlic shrimps were big and true to their identity, the salmon tartare was ok (I have tried many versions of this ubiquitous dish, it takes quite a bit to impress me now). Dessert was good, a creme brûlée with a delicate orange flavour, but my strawberries with sherbet were a bit blah.
The service was truly excellent, efficient and personable at once. This was our second visit and we'll come back.
