This restaurant is beautifully designed with an attention to colors, texture and ambiance that goes above and beyond. The food was very good, particularly the gambas al ajillo. The huevos estrellados dish could have been better as I did not expect it to be made with french fries. Overall, it was a good dining experience.

We had a graduation party of 11, with the tasting menu. That includes a variety of tapas, paella and a glass of Moscato. I would recommend NOT doing this.

First, the food was really good. The tapas that come with the prix fixe were all excellent. Stuffed date wrapped in goat cheese, pepper stuffed with crab mixture, lamb chops, etc. You receive one piece of each, and all were good, especially the lamb chops.

The problem with ordering the prix fixe is too much food. Two people could easily share paella for one. They packed up over 10 lbs of food at the end, which will never be eaten.

The seafood paella was delicious, the squid ink rich and the chicken pasta tender. All really good.

The service was a little slow, but not terrible and the music was really good. Very nice for a family gathering, but order a la carte. I attached the prix fixe menu.

This is the first Spanish restaurant in the greater Phoenix area that we have come across. Very unique tapas that tasted great and the staff was very enjoyable. They didn't rush you to get out and let you actually dine. We had the tomato and goat cheese salad, portobello mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese, and the ahi tuna with watermelon. Then we tried the lobster filled pasta and the shrimp and lobster paella. The paella was better than the pasta and the watermelon ahi was an excellent combination.

Amazing! Such a wonderful menu and the Tapas were exceptional. Each one was a symphony of flavors. To end we had an amazing paella dish, unfortunately it was too big to finish and we were leaving the next day. Otherwise I'd be enjoying the leftovers right now! We had such a great time; in addition to the great food the staff is amazing as well. I was looking for a northern Spain experience and definitely got it!

Love eating the Spanish way, a little bit of this and little bit of that, all very tasty. had a glass of the house Spanish red, it was excellent! The service was great and you have to try the churros for dessert! We sat outside, great ambience, street musicians could be heard...
