Went with our friends for a couples holiday celebration! So good! We loved the breaded cauliflower, quest frito and the halibut were amazing! We actually liked everything we tried. Nice, small setting- with an updated friendly appeal. Will definitely return.

We didn’t have a reservation, so we sat at the bar and it turned out to be the greatest location. Chatted with the manager, drank a great bottle of wine, watched the tapas go by and worked our way through the Paella Marinera, Port tenderloin...More
