    The sangria was unlike any other I had- pleasant to the pallet. Battata bravas and their version of the escargot were good. Get the yelp deal!

    For vegetarians, there are selections galore, including white asparagus with an agreeable relish, a newfangled salad of shredded fennel, and an assortment of mushrooms sautéed in garlic sauce. Read more

    I know this might be a strange tip but DO NOT order Serrano ham tapas. The Serrano we got was very old. The food is ok but it's wasn't real Spanish more like Latin interpretation of Spanish ;)

    Everything was fantastic. We started w. the garlic shrimp, patatas bravas and the garlic octopus. All were fabulous. The seafood paella was also great. The service was timed perfectly. A gem in BK.

    I had the veal, tasty. Server got annoyed because I asked for too much stuff. asked for a bowl of a few lemon wedges, they only brought one asked again and they brought some then asked for a straw.

    Pays special attention to salads, tapas and other small dishes such as the trio of perfectly grilled sardines, chorizo in sauce and stewed pulpo. Winner of NYC Critics' choice for best Spanish!

    Great food with an A grade :-) reminded me of Spain. Too bad it's in a shitty neighborhood. They'd have more business if it was some where else.

    All of the tapas we had were exceptional, except for the scallops (not that great). The calamari, pork lions and batatas bravas were delicious. I did not like the torejas.

    If u live in 'shwick and plan on enjoying a summer Friday-stop buy for an afternoon glass of sangria and 'beets & spinach salad.' you'll forget winter ever happened.
