    Wow how disappointed I was when I ordered my truffle pizza to go last night 😭😭😭 I guess the chef either forgot to put truffle oil or just I ordered the I correct one. I don't think I will go back

    Patio seating is great for people watching. Don't bother with the pan con tomate but definitely order the champiñones al ajillo.

    Excellent live music some nights at the front of the restaurant space. Can get a little loud and difficult to hold conversation but they do have front patio al fresco as an alternative.

    Exceptional, mainly Spanish, wine list most are 30-40$/bottle range. I loved the veg paella but wished for more rice in the dish (Indonesian in me, what can I say?! Lol). Veggie loaded & totally yum!!

    Try the patatas bravas, pulpo del bar (grilled octopus) & Pan con jamon Serrano. The coca de setes is a tasty flatbread w/ oyster mushrooms & manchengo cheese. True tapas in sharing size. Yum!

    Very hip and fun. Great atmosphere, decor, music and general vibe. We had seafood paella which was above average but not great. The tapas might be a better bet. Our Tabla Carna & Queso was great.
