    Great affordable selection of tapas and cheap house wine. The sauce that comes with the bread is amazing and super garlicky. Bring gum. No reservation needed.

    Very relaxed and casual atmosphere. Great Spanish food (make sure to try Almejas a La Marinera!) accompanied by reasonably priced decent red wines. Highly recommended!

    The tapas are definitely not Spanish and not worth the price. However, the paella is good enough to relieve my sickness. So come for the paella, not the tapas. And btw, Mariachis are not Spanish!!!
