Great food. Great service. Cosy ambience. Pleasant experience overall. Only criticism is that some people sitting close by we’re very loud.

We were 4 people and 2 ordered the empanada which the crust was to think. They have had homemade ones and some in Mexico so no comparison. I always enjoy your food. They being their first time were more critical. The meat they say in the pork taco to chewy. I like it. So just sad they did not enjoy. Sorry

The restaurant was not crowded. The food was delicious, love the Spanish menu and particularly loved the pan gorilla. The only small complaint I could make is that the items came out a little too fast. We ended up leaving the salad to the end so that we could eat the hot food first.

Tasty food, we were a group of 6 and we ordered 10 plates to share. We enjoyed every bite. Cozy environment, they were running short on the wines we wanted which should never happen. Strongly recommend for foodies who enjoy tasting good healthy Spanish food.

We had a really great evening with delicious food and kind service. I only rated 'good' for service as it was kind when there, but it was quite slow and lacked attention. I imagine they were very busy or understaffed.
