I love this restaurant! Great service and wonderful food. But the real treat is the owner. One of the most wonderful people I've meet. I will be back!

Tapas are a good way to eat because it encourages everyone to try different dishes. The Spanish tapas restaurant itself is not extremely fancy but has obvious deep Spanish roots. There isn't any loud music, the decor is charming but slightly dated as a typical family-owned European restaurant serving delicate traditional cuisine. Gambas Al Ajillo can be an excellent starter. Pepito De Solomillo is must-have tapa there if you are hungry. Pimientos De Piquillo Con Bacalao is a beautiful and delicious entree. A trio of desserts (tarta de Arrese, Leche Frita and chocolate mousse) can be a good fit for people who usually get lost in reading dessert menus. A cup of coffee is recommended to match leche frita. Tarta de Arrese is simply addictive. Last but not least, the service is flawless.

Thanks for your kind words, Kevin. I couldn't be happier to hear how much you enjoyed dining with us. Creating "charming" decor and providing "excellent" dishes is always our goal! I appreciate you taking the time to point out your favorite dishes. The team will be thrilled to hear about your experience. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! -All the best, Jesus, Owner

Old fashioned Spanish. Low key, but it gets better with age. The tapas selection is excellent and very reasonably priced.

Had a great experience here. The food was great, the sangria was great and the staff was very attentive. They have an extensive Tapas menu as well as main dishes. The menu on the outside does not show everything that is on the menu on the inside, but they will volunteer the larger menu if they see you by the door.

New yorkers obviously dont know about tapas. The stuff we got was out of tins. And £42 for a bottle of riocha thats just averagage is overpriced. They need to improve alot to make it worth it. They were spanish but not very friendly.
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Niko, I appreciate the feedback. I'm sorry to hear you were less than impressed with our tapas. From our unique decor to our authentic dishes, we work hard to have a truly traditional Spanish flare. I learned everything about running a restaurant from my parents, who actually owned a restaurant in Spain. My love for cooking is what inspired me to open this restaurant after moving to the United States, so it's a shame nothing stood out to you. What dishes have you tried of ours? Could you give me some specifics about what you would improve? I would love to get a little more feedback from you, so we can make your experience even better next time! All the best, Jesus —Owner

The stuffed peppers were very good. It's like being in Spain.
