This was not our first dinner here and we will definitely go back when we visit again. The service is exceptional and food comes at great pace for a tapas restaurant. We ordered so many different dishes. Meatballs, chicken, calamari, several different vegetable dishes, skirt steak , and crepes for dessert. were some of our choices. Huge wine selection.

Work called for a trip to Stamford this week. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and our group did need to venture far at all to find some very good food, as Barcelona is right across the street. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and an ample menu. We all ordered a couple plates apiece and shared. All of it... More

Both my husband and I are very familiar with authentic Spanish food. This leaves much to be desired. The atmosphere is pleasant and the idea is great. The quality of the wine and food was below standard.

Very nice venue downtown, with outside eating area during summer months. Incredible selection of authentic tapas and wines. Our food was amazing, especially the flank steak and the flan for desert. Excellent service, and even though it was a bit more upscale than most family restaurants, my 2 middle school age kids were welcome and had a great time. Definitely... More

Very very loud and pached restaurant where you feel like in a bar and not somewhere to have dinner. Small tapas dishes of ok quality. Interior ok as well, but it's really only good for a beer (assuming you need calm for a glass of red wine)

Markus: I hope this note finds you well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts of your recent experience. We do invite a fun social atmosphere for everyone to enjoy but I'm sorry the environment was too audible for you in this case. I'd love to make personal arrangements for you to return. Im confident the environment in our private dining... More

Went twice during my last visit to Stamford. Pretty decent food for a reasonable price, if you're here, you must try the Croquetas! On Sundays all wines are 50% off

Stopped in for drinks after dinner on NYE. Got some seats at the bar. Bartenders were great and attentive. Place was hopping, we will go back next year. We eat often at the one in Fairfield and may have dinner in Stamford as well next year.

This restaurant specializes in tapas. They are very good, but I think the serving size is about 80% of the size they should be. We had a table of five and order several different dishes. It seemed that the staff was unorganized as the food came very slowly and the time from the first dish to the last was about... More

Went for a holiday lunch - the appetizers were to die for - hot, served quickly, wait staff and mgr are very good - unfortunately the main course didn't fair so well, steaks were over done and too chewy, the chicken was underdone and the veggie plate was lacking in flavor and portion. Dessert was great also -- so beginning... More

Great menu, great rustic decor, lovely staff. Terrible food. We had many tapas, three each, and each one was worse than the next. A tiny piece of branzino drowned in a lake of oil. A green salad with olives was the only edible dish. We heard good things about the sister location in Greenwich. We will give this one another... More
