We stopped in for a drink and a couple of small plates after doing some shopping. We were initially excited when our cocktails came as they were excellent. We ordered the olives and beets as our two small plates. The olives were solid, well marinaded...More

Definitely would recommend. Good Tapas choices. Especially liked the anchovies, Spanish Tortilla, and Octopus. Would've been 5 star review if the sangria didn't have a spice I was surprised by...cardamom or cinnamon? I lived in Spain for a summer and didn't recall having it there....More
