    The "Queso Frito con Cebolla y Miel" is my favorite, but there are so many tapas to choose from. The place has a very European vibe and thus the service can be a bit slow, but the staff very friendly.

    Okay, so this is the anti-Dallas restaurant: quiet (can you say conversation?), more laid-back, less stuffy, reasonable portions, and excellent Spanish food. We love coming here. Try the lamb skewers.

    I have been eating here for 13 years, this place never disappoints. Definitely get the Spanish potato omelette. It is the best carbs you have ever had and so worth it!

    THE BEST TAPAS RESTAURANT IN DALLAS - seriously, no hyperbole. Especially the lamb & honey, the octopus, and, their charcuterie plate is always awesome!

    Yummy yummy! Definitely isn't Spain haha, but their tapas are worth it! The traditional sangria is also good! 👍🏽 I would come again.

    Savor each of these little plates with a tiny glass of sherry, a stubby tumbler of Rioja or a sip of perfumey Albarino. Your mouth will never run dry. Read more

    The blood sausage is a must have. Try the croquettes for a vegetarian must have.

    Run...in the opposite direction. Every dish was dry and bland except for the mushrooms. Horrible menu for vegetarians. Even the wine was overly cliche. LOUD and pretentious crowd after 8:00. Hated!

    The service was very slow. 20 minutes before a waiter took my order, and an hour to get my paella. It was overcooked and dried out. Worst paella ever, and overpriced!
