Great Tapas. We had the $39 with a selection from each price range. Very good potato bravado, green beans, scallops. Only dish a bit disappointing was the pork. Good drinks list.

We enjoyed our dinner here and thought it was good value. Octopus tostada was delicious as well as barramundi. Can’t fault patatas braves. We had red wine from Iniesta’s vineyard too. Nice staff and great vibe. We will be back

Gluten free friendly. Food was great although I can’t say it was traditional Spanish tapas. Ambience was good

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
