    First time dining here. We chose an early seating so we could take our time and still get to the DPAC. Waiter did not hover but was timely and attentive. Being our first time we asked for some guidance which he provided excellently. Food was superb; two tapas per person is ample unless you are really hungry. Wine choices were well matched to the menu. We will definitely return next time we go to the DPAC.

    Tapas were very tasty. I will never understand why restaurants seat two tops right beside each other when the restaurant has plenty of other seating. It makes what would be a lovely environment very awkward. Luckily this time the people beside us were super friendly! I totally understand if the restaurant is packed but we were seated at 5pm.

    Very disappointing meal. All tapas came out at once and tasted as if food was prepared previously and heated up/ microwaved for us. Food was bland/ not tasty at all. Opted to get desserts elsewhere…

    Sat at the bar and enjoyed a wonderful meal before a show at Carolina Theatre. The Kale and Oyster Mushroom sauté was DELICIOUS as were the Gambas Ajillo! My girlfriends had the Paella and raved about it, as well!

    Enjoyed the selection of small plates. Favorites were bacon wrapped dates, braised short ribs, gambino ajillo, and the chocolate mousse dessert. A glass of wine was late coming to the table, but other thsn that, our server was helpful and food items came out promptly. Nice restaurant within walking distance to DPAC.

    Always good food, great selections for folks with various food restrictions, fun spot for a long dinner with friends or a good meal before a show. One of my favorite places to eat in downtown Durham. A little pricey, but worth it. Good wine list, also allow you to bring your own bottle for a $10 corking fee. I’ve eaten here many times, and will be back again. Service is always top notch, too.

    We went for my husband’s birthday, it was a gtesr choice! We requested seats at the bar and enjoyed our interaction with our server. We had a 5:15 reservation, it wasn’t crowded at first, but it definitely picked up. Great food and drinks, can’t wait to go back!

    We ordered a paella for the table (4-6) and it was absolute perfection, with the mandatory socarrat on the bottom. Since it takes a bit to cook the paella (35-40 minutes), be sure to order a few of the small plates for the table and a carafe of the red sangria. The crab-stuffed piquillo peppers and patatas bravas are both on point as well. We will definitely be back here the next time we are attending a show at The Carolina Theater, and we will plan more time to get some of the yummy-sounding desserts!

    Fantastic Tapas restaurant. We loved everything. Chicken wings were amazing and the empanadas were flavorful and perfectly crispy. We thoroughly enjoyed this place before a concert at DPAC. Walking distance DPAC. Will definitely revisit.

    Service was very good. Ambiance is excellent for a date night or cozy conversation. Dish size is a nice surprise for most tapas places. Food quality was excellent. Notations on the menu made it very easy to learn what was and wasn't gluten free - a big treat.

    The food was excellent and came out quickly. We had a great time, but I took a star off because we were charged an extra $32 on the bill for things we were told would be complimentary. I called back and they were able to refund the money to my card, but it was a bit frustrating.
