Nice restaurant, but $70 for two seemed a bit expensive. The shrimp bisque was very nice, but the tortilla and other dishes were average. Our waiter was friendly without being overbearing, and the ambience was excellent.

It is a good restaurant. Food and service are good. They have Flamenco Shows some days, so that is good to know.

Its price for the "tapas". If you are really hungry i dont recomend it.
Its more for a nice sangria, and some tapas.
tapas are like entrees for diferent dishes, they are good, but for a guy I think its not enought

This place is OK for a quick lunch given the location. But like most "Tapas" the food is deep fried or microwaved and there's not much effort to disguise that fact, especially when many of the stews have flour based sauces. A blast in the microwave results in a gloopier version. It's probably little pricey of the very average output also.

The ambiance is not terrible if you sit outside, the inside is sort of suffocating and they have wild tap dancing on stage from time to time that will make you feel like you're eating in a war zone. The food is alright but I've had better tapas including here in Costa Rica. Total bill for 8 tapas (3-4 people meal) excluding wine/tips $110. That's a bit too much for what you're getting. Unlikely that we will revisit..
