Good for a romantic informal dinner, tapas and drinks for a good happy hour, or going with a group. Modern and confortable seats and sofas, nice music and Sports on TV. Reasonable prices and fresh meat and great cheese.

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat. Decent Tapas and tasty sangria. Will say drinks were a little small. Friendly staff.

So we gobbled tapas, paella, mussels, clams, chorizo & sangria like we used to do in Madrid. Seriously yum. Waitstaff gentle, delightful and gracious. Splendid lunch. Very hard not to over-indulge.
