The food was bland and small portions. The service was excellent but the food wasn't good enough for the price.

I tried this with my boyfriend for our anniversary and we had a great time. The staff was very attentive, the food was delicious, and overall the ambiance was pleasant. Would recommend for special occasions, first dates or just a nice meal out. Cute small gem in etobicoke.

Make sure you make a reservation - as they are quite full and do not have a lot of tables. Weekends can fill up quickly but weeknights should be fine.

Absolutely amazing and unique service & atmosphere!
They looked after us throughout the meal as they were aware we were celebrating, even the chef came out to see how we were fairing with the meal.
Provided tips and recommendations on the menu and wine.
Personal note: Even provided tips for travel!
We ordered two meals and they are ready for us to share them!
Lovely decorate!

I love this place. I’ve been here a few times since I live pretty close, and its always amazing. Far better than a lot of places I’ve been to in downtown TO. We had the Paella Marisco, the anchovies, calamari, chorizo with white beans and the veal carpaccio. Every single dish was awesome, and the service was top notch too. Easily one of the best restaurants in Etobicoke.

Very good tapas with a good variety. Excellent service, even the chef came to the table. Had about 6 tapas between us and it was the perfect amount. Loved the white anchovies and the grilled calamari. Would definitely go back
