The food is amazing but the wait was annoying . We had to wait for 45 minutes to get a table. But the wait was worth, the food is amazing.

“worth the wait”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Hard to get in to but worth the wait. The Tapas menu is high quality, authentic, and very well turned out. Our group sampled just about everything on the menu and there were no disappointments. The drinks menu is spot on with a good wine selection. It was pretty crowded but that only served to enhance the convivial atmosphere. Servers can -- at times -- be a little overwhelmed and if you get too close to the kitchen area you will leave smelling like fried onions and garlic.

“I wish I could get here more often”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

Excellent food but can be too crowded often. Usually a wait but worth it. Don't deny yourself the pleasure.

“Hidden spanish treasure in south end”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

To start Paella was very delicious if you are going with friends order the biggest one i guarantee you will finish it! Also the drinks were potent and delicious and very creative. Yes the atmosphere is noisy but it goes well with the theme. I just wish servers didn't rotate so often and there was more room since we had to wait.
