    Everything here is wonderful, from be meats to cheeses to Spanish provisions. The chorizo is to die for. And do not leave the premises without ordering a sandwich -- the meats, cheeses & bread are A+.

    Killer bocadillos (Spanish sandwich) and MVP value play at $9. The Picante is a beast. Eat all the chorizo samples at the front while you wait. They won't stop you. Trust.

    The sandwiches are good but a little plain. I got the gallego(ham and cheese) wish I would have asked for aioli, tomatoes and peppers. There are a bunch of sample chorizos to try while you wait!

    Amazing pintxos and bocadillos. Among the pintxos, our favorites are bacalao and octopus. The bocadillos with tuna, tomato and red bell peppers is an unforgettable and addictive experience

    The Picante Bocadillo is incredible - Chorizo sausage, mahon cheese, spicy peppers, tomatoes, and alioli. While you wait, go splittsies on the chorizo with chestnuts

    Everything is of/from Spain. Taste new foods, buy something prepared and eat it in the back seating area. Color and character astound here. No corking fee if you buy a bottle of wine next door too!

    Great selection of imported Spanish food along with some quality stateside produced goods. Grab a bottle next door and they'll open it for you at the restaurant

    Crear place for a quick bite or a light meal. Try the picante or despaña (ask for manchego slice instead of the spread). The red sangria is also good.

    Amazing place to buy imported foods from Spain. Great store and the tapas restaurant in the back is just like Spain!! The Crema Catalana is legit, and the tortilla de Batata is a must!

    The chorizo was delicious!!! Also, the wine store next door is owned by the same people, so you can buy a bottle and bring it into Despaña to enjoy with your tapas with no additional fee!

    You must try the Jamon Iberico de Bellota....at $180/LB it is pricey....but something you must experience if you're a fan of cured meats. Only a handful of places in the US are able to import it.

    The tortilla sandwich is one of the better (and tastier) deals you can find on a sandwich this part of town. Try the flan and horchata to round out an amazing lunch!

    I'll echo everyone else: get the picante bocadillo (a pressed Spanish sandwich). The chorizo is so good, as is the spicy aioli.

    Excellent one-stop shop for Spanish specialty ingredients: cured meat, cheese, oils, and more. We dig the sandwiches, too.
  • Elizabeth B.
    Vegetarian sandwich and gazpacho soup are bomb. Nice hidden gem for quick food in soho. Would be curious to return and try some of their exotic Spanish hams etc

    The Picante Bocadillo is delicious and super authentic (or as close as you can get to it). They also sell Spanish import and great Spanish wines (next door).

    Have a warm sandwich with charcuterie and cheese, go to the wine tasting events, and get some groceries for your Spanish home cooking

    Amazing bocadillos like the namesake Despaña. Grab a bottle of wine next door then have the staff here pick out the perfect cheese pairing. Best part: samples!

    A great Spanish market that makes delicious sandwiches. Come for lunch and grab a bottle of olive oil or a wedge of beautiful Spanish cheese while you're here.

    Love this place. A best kept secret. I usually get the morcilla and tortilla pintxos. Sangria is made with drinkable (and not bottom of the barrel) wine.

    Tortilla Bocadillo dipped into EVOO/black pepper mix is the move to make. Ask them to hook it up with some samples of that acorn fed jamón and ride the flavor wave.

    The gazpacho was creamy and delicious. Pro tip: add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to your sandwich and dip the sandwhich in the gazpacho! Mmmm! 😉

    The tortilla is as good as my Moms. Great selection of cured meats and the pantry goods are top quality.

    I highly recommend this place for their sandwiches (come for lunch!), but also their fantastic selection of cheeses, olive oils, and spreads. A gem.

    Make sure to sample all the meets & cheeses when you first walk in. Actually, order your sandwich first, then munch on the free samples while you wait.

    I can spend all day here with their free samples. Loved the Despaña bocadillo and a glass of Mibal (or just any Ribera del Duero wine)!

    Love their pinxtos, tortillas, and well-appointed communal dining area. My go-to for jamón and chorizo. Wine shop next door is lovely too!

    The picante is spicy and delicious. Chorizo with Basque peppers, tomatoes, a soft cheese, and a healthy dose of olive oil on a big crusty ciabatta.

    My go-to for gifts to bring to out of town hosts - for 10-20 you can put together a little package of imported packaged foods that impress.

    Not too hungry? Get their $5.50 Flautas mini-sandwiches! The 'Chestnuts' version is pretty good for a light meal in Soho.

    While you wait for your delicious chorizo sandwich, fill up on all the chorizo, bread, and cheese samples located around the entrance.

    Pro tip: if you get your sandwich to go, ask for some olive oil to go with it.

    LOVE this place. The most amazing sandwiches. Such a sweet spot. I will be back for sure.
  • Will S.
    Amazing sandwiches but the bread feels like it's dusted in chalk. If you're fussy about your hands while you eat (which I am): be warned.

    Made me wait forever because they messed order up, but sandwich was worth the wait. Offered me a drink on the house to make it up, so great service too.

    You can select tapas from showcase or order from menu. Anchovies and sardines are cooked to order.

    The Mallorquin is a sleeper hit, with the honey adding a nice sweet touch. Add some soft sheep's cheese to take it over the top.

    Had a goat cheese and Carmalized onion snack on toasted bread. It was good! Had the octopus as well not as good. Very fishy. Probably frozen. Cool shop though!

    Try the mallorquin! So simple and delicious - bread, sobrasada (chorizo spread), honey

    Incredible chorizos. The picante sandwich is really good. Also, there is one of the fine oils in a smaller bottle that's increidble.

    The picante bocadillo is a must here. Don't forget to do some shopping too if you have time, great Spanish product!!

    Amazing sandwiches and great selection of fresh cut deli style meat, but not the regular meat you get a grocery store!

    As a Spaniard living in NY, I over expected so much it still hurts... The shop part is amazing, the sandwiches, excessively poor (when comparing to real Spanish ones). Serrano with cream cheese? Ugh.
  • Sally R.
    Get the meat and cheese board to share! Wine next door that you can drink here.

    Delicious sandwiches, the Picante bocadillo came recommended and it was well worth it. Mediocre coffee, though, so bring some in from elsewhere.
  • Kira R.
    Great atmosphere, simple tapas selection but expensive. We had anchoives sandwich, codfish croquettes. They sell some groceries and wine too

    Nice for a quick meal when visiting Soho. Try "Despaña" and "El Quijote" sandwiches.
