Genuine Spanish cuisine with a touch of class and efficient service. The Paella and the Pan Tomaca are amazing.

We stopped in before a concert at the Verizon Center and not disappointed! We visited during restaurant week so we had two menu options to choose from...the adults ordered from a prefixed menu and the teens ordered various tapas.

Everyone enjoyed their food and we were able to share...but the best part, oh the yummy drinks! I chose the London Dry and the teens had homemade sparkling lemonade.

Although pricey, the food was really good

Service was 5-star, and most of the food was quite nice.


We started with Aceituna ‘Ferran Adria” (liquid olives), (interesting), the gazpacho, which was pleasant enough, and pan con tomate y queso Manchego (bread with cheese and tomato), which was (just) ok.

We then followed with empedrat de mongetes (a white beans salad), which was more flavorful and tasty. My wife ate all of the cono de salmon crudo (salmon tartare) and reports it to be delicious. Patatas bravas (potatoes in a spicy red sauce) were very good.

Gambas al ajillo (shrimp sautéed with garlic) were nice, and the arroz cremoso de setas(creamy rice with mushrooms and idiazabal cheese) was pretty good. Dátiles con tocino (fried dates wrapped in bacon) were delicious.

The butifarra (mini pork sausages served over mashed potatoes) were good.

The dessert was delicious, a flan with oranges.

We enjoyed a decent Cava with dinner.

The menu was part of Restaurant Week, $35 pp, and with the $66 Cava, plus tip and tax, three of us dined for $225.

We went here on a friday afternoon with friends. Just randomly picking some tapas and fill the table, it worked out so perfectly. It was all very tasty. The service was good too, before we knew our glass was filled again each time.
