5 stars for the food, 5 stars for the music and dancing. 0 stars for the service and 1 star for the drinks. The waitstaff must have trained to serve at Burger King. They endeavoured to rush us through our meal before the musicians were...More

Beautiful restaurant. Lovely Joan Miro paintings and authentic Spanish décor... felt like I was back in Barcelona! Amazing tapas, must sample the sirloin and shrimp. My very favorite is the gazpacho... I swear I could overdose on that and die a very happy woman! *sigh*...More

My, the paella was fabulous, and the tapas were wonderful. We had just returned from a month in Spain and the food here reminded us of many great Spanish restaurants. We'll definitely return!

We dined there last year and had a terribly long wait. But the food and ambience was so good we thought we would give it another try. 2:35 for dinner. Our dinner came quickly but the other couple waited 20 more minutes. When we asked...More

Wandered to the music and found not only smiles, dancing but terrific tapas begging for my return. Sangria was delicious, setting magical. Would highly recommend this place for a taste of Spain. Great location with pretty white lights. All three dishes were superb but the...More

Walked around the river area. Listened to live music and decided to have dinner. Arturo was our server. He was warm, welcoming and made us feel like we were regulars even though it was our first visit. We ordered the chef's special tasting menu. DELICIOUS....More

Not every night. Fridays and perhaps Sat. Better to call them directly as this might have changed.

The state of AZ doesn't allow alcoholic beverage bought to the establishment that has its own liquor licences. We do have a extensive Wine list to choose from. Thank You!
