    Real Spanish food and wines. Ask about the specials and "Pimientos del Padrón" (not be listed). The "bravas", a must.

    Sangria, Tempranillo wine, Octopus, Patitas Bravas, and the Oxtail. Happy Hour 4-6, live music on Thursday, Flamenco on Sunday. Listen to your server's recommendations, you can't really go wrong here.

    Sangria was delightful, thick with fruit and not too sweet. First time I had paella - unbelievable. Our waiter was sooooo charming. Incredible evening! !!

    Flamenco dance on Sundays. Live music on Thursdays. Top class Tapas every day. All is good. Friends love the Patata Bravas and Tortilla Española. I've a soft spot for the Rabas. Friendly bar tenders.

    Paella was exceptional. Be sure to get your order in early as it can take some time to come out.

    Sangria and tapas only. Paella was horrible and the porterhouse is like rubber. Not a place for dinner only for tapas

    Definitely try the oxtail tapa, and trust your server's recommendations. For a more low-key experience sit at the bar. Jaime will take GREAT care of you!
