    Outstanding dishes. Cozy atmosphere. I have to take issue with the $$ rating, however. It's at least $$$ or even $$$$.

    Yummy tapas! Get the patatas bravas. Also call ahead to reserve a table for dinner as it fills up quick here.

    Fantastic tapas and record store. The prawns come in a rich, roasted tomato sauce that's hard to get enough of

    Watch out! Sangria is not sangria. It's a kind of soft drink. But the three tapas we tried were great, tasty. Patatas bravas, recommended.

    Menu is not impressive; but everything we tried was pretty good. Particularly enjoyed the chickpea fritters and lamb burger. Nice cozy place. Check out their vinyl record collection at the back.

    Nice atmosphere, decent but not stellar tapas, and slightly iffy service. Overall a good experience, but too pricey.

    Excellent food and great service. The staff was friendly. Didn't have any food I didn't like. Highly recommend the boquerones. We had 3 ordered our table shared. Don't miss the Serrano ham either.

    Enjoy small-plate staples (patatas bravas), entree-size delicacies (grilled Vermont quail), and spot-on desserts (churros and hot chocolate) with your Bob Dylan.

    Gambas-perfectly cooked- heads on-not to much garlic. Skate was the second best item on the menu. The chocolate covered almonds were surprisingly delicious-salt and sweet in perfect harmony.

    This is random, but they have the best pickles in the world. Not kidding.

    It’s a record store! It’s a bookstore! It’s a tapas bar! Somehow these three concepts combine to make the ideal JP hangout. It might not work if the food weren’t great, but it is. Read more

    They riff effectively on the tapas tradition- try the prawns in a Catalan sauce, grilled bavette steak, and the churros (with an intense Mexican chocolate sauce) Read more
