My husband and I were in the Newport-Irvine area at lunchtime, and came upon this gem of a restaurant. We ate on the outdoor patio because it was such a nice day, and the interior was dark. We had a nice fountain next to our table, but note that you will hear the noise of little planes at nearby John Wayne Airport.

The menu here is amazing! I ordered the asparagus, ham and Manteco cheese tapas, plus the artichoke toast tapas. Oh, my! delightful. My husband ordered paella with black mussels, green-lipped mussels, clams, shrimp, and scallops. All dishes were excellent. There were so many other wonderful-sounding things on the menu that we plan to go back soon.

The interior is huge, with a stage for flamenco dancers on Friday and Saturday evenings (about 8 pm), and a dance floor for those who like salsa dancing after that. There is Bachatta dancing on Sunday. I don't even know what that is!
Note that this is a nightclub, but there is no cover charge.

According to their flyer, they are open for lunch Tuesday-Friday, and for dinner Tuesday-Sunday. But I wasn't so sure about the Tuesdays or even Wednesdays after talking to our waiter. If you want to go on Tuesday or Wednesday, you should call to verify that they are actually open. The food is so worth it. For the bargain-minded, there is a happy hour with 2 for 1 well drinks, and 30% off tapas at the bar on Tuesday-Friday from 6-7:30.

This is a quiet restaurant near the Fairmont Newport Beach Hotel (5 minute walk). Great tapas with lots and lots of variety. Good drinks - the bonus was the dancers - they were very good and very entertaining. Made our night! Thanks

Food was very good and a nice selection but if you are expecting food like you get in Spain you might be a little disappointed. Excellent service and atmosphere. The sangria was excellent and had a little kick to it

This restaurant/nite club had Flamenco dancers early on (around 9) and then an excellent live salsa band at 10, didn't eat there. The place could stand to be redecorated but otherwise nice
