8 tapas were excellent for the two of us. One remark: the price of the promotion red wine didn't match with our ticket. We saw it and got our money back. Portions aren't that big, with correct with the price you pay for it.

Refined Spanish fingerfood with very friendly atmosphere and staff. Prices are fair and a particular thumbs up for the wine list with very good quality/price ratio!

Celebrated a friend's birthday here recently. Interesting choices and tasty food, I am sure everyone can find here something to their taste. Some tapas will make me go back, some were less of a success due to overcooking, but 9 excellent tapas out of 10 I find a good share. The amounts are sufficient, the majority could not even squeeze... More

With a party of 14 we made a stop for the main course. Mains goes with 2 servings of wine. Drinkable house wine for a change which was pleasant. Paella comes in a hot iron pan. We were lucky with only 3 persons sharing, which gave us enough food. Others seated with four where complaining it was not enough. Taste... More

Very disappointing. Nothing to do with fresh tapas. Can't understand why this restaurant was full on a Friday evening.

Went in a group of six for dinner. Had both Tapas for group and entrees. Food was good but we waited a very long time between tapas apps and dinner. It was a 3 1/2 hr meal

Although i already live 19 years close to Leuven. There are still restaurants one never has visited. By chance we ended up here on a summer evening. Modern style restaurant with Spanish and portugees food. The 8 dishes tapas was more then a enough for 3, that we a decent wine made it well. A place to return.

I made a reservation for 5 couples some days before our visit. We got a nice place to sit, fitting just the 10 of us. And each of us could even choose his own menu. The restaurant serves a good variety of Mediterranean food. You can make your choice out of a monthly menu, a number of starters, main dishes... More

Tucked in a hidden alley of old Leuven, this spanish restaurant serves a variety of tapas on a terrace. The tapas combos are an especially good value.

This restaurant is somewhat hidden in a little alley in the old city centre of Leuven. Once you have found it, this place has nice Spanish delights to offer; classical dishes as well as tapas. We ordered the tapas for 2. That turned out to be great value for money! Amongst the tapas were classics as meatballs in tomato sauce,... More
