    Best tapas I've had on this side of the Atlantic. The patatas braves are to die for, the paellas huge and delicious. If it's nice out, ask to sit on the back patio — it's lovely and romantic.

    The lunch special is an outstanding deal at $7.07 (after tax) for a sandwich and a side. The Vegetariana sandwich is delicious and filling; The stewed zucchini is a touch watery though well-seasoned.

    Sangaria is legit. Bread with the Orange colored sauce tastes very good. Steamed mussels were a let down.

    Coming from Barcelona, Spain. This place is nice. It might be the closest you will be to good tapas back in Spain. Which is nice. The sangria is really good I will give them that.

    I've had a ton of patatas bravas and these are some of the best, easily. Including what I've tried in Barcelona. Every dish is fantastic here.

    A mariachi band came and played. The orange sauce is great! The combo plates are a great value. I got the garlic chicken which was good, but became overwhelming half way through. Good dish to share.

    Great for large groups. Get a pitcher of sangria. Also dig into the free bread with the yummy spicy red sauce. Also like garlic shrimp, lobster tail, and patatas bravas.

    Amazing sangria... Order by the pitchers. Paella was delish. From the tapas menu, try the garlic chicken and potato pancakes. Yum.

    Anchovy-stuffed olives and patatas bravas are the best way to kick off a meal here. This is a fantastic second-date spot!

    The bread and sauce they serve you as an appetizer are delicious! Loved everything we ordered: grilled jumbo shrimp, spinach, pork kebabs, oysters, and especially the sangria.

    Noisy and loud. If you want a romantic and quiet dinner look elsewhere. The paella gets a 7 out of 10. Needs MORE saffron flavor, color and seafood.

    Come for lunch and enjoy the awesome "bocadillo de tortilla de patata" - fried calamari and manchego cheese are a must.

    Restaurante español que cumple todos los tópicos al pie de la letra, pelis de Almodovar, sevillanas y el toro de Osborne en las paredes. La comida, sin ser lo mismo que en España, es aceptable.
