A nice Tapas bar with good choice of Tapas. But there is really space to develop a bit, the food was ok, we took the "plate de chef" and the taste was quite good. Despite the fact that we were almost alone in the restaurant, it took a long time until the food arrived and all tapas came at the... More

I was there for dinner one evening and took some sets of tapas, the food was ok and the menu had many selection but one thing on the menu was a bit strange, mac and cheese... not sure this is a spanish speciality but anyway. Nothing wrong with the taste of the food there so i will probably be back... More

We chose this restaurant for my last meal in Belgium. It was a wonderful way to end my trip. The restaurant is small but you don't feel crowded. Reservations are required as I think word of mouth will make it more popular. It has a relaxed atmosphere perfect for those who enjoy a combination of good food and conversation. The... More

This is my favorite place in town. The host is friendly, the food is delicious. one probleme: don't come here in a rush, this is a place for slow food... Try the musical thursday: not for a romantic date or a nice chat with friends but a lovely experience

Went here on a saturday evening. Reservations are required, it is not that big. The service is friendly. There is quite some choice of different tapas. But they are not all quite that good. We ate some good croquettes, but the chili con carne tasted funny. Not all dishes are winners. I found that the prices for the tapas are... More

I really like how the place has changed compared to the time when it just opened... We were eating there with a group of 4 and really enjoyed the food, and the concept of sharing multiple dishes. Servants were very friendly as well. Only small note: I was a bit taken aback by the extra charge when paying with debit... More

I'm a frequent guest. I love the fresh and delicious food. The menu changes very often. Friendly host. I would recommend there Musical Thursday's (with local bands) but keep in mind that this place is not so big so go for the food and the ambiance but not for a romantic date. You beter call for a reservation for those... More

Service was very slow; it took them 45 minutes to give us the platter with Serrano ham. The tapas were also overpriced and there was nothing really Mediterranean about them; all dishes were very 'Belgified'. The sepia al ajillo was not sepia but a bowl with pulpitos. It wasn't horrible, but it certainly does not deserve a 4 star+ rating.... More

We visited with a group of 8 persons expecting the possibility for ordering a lot of tapas (small portions of food) like we visited other tapasbars in nearby cities. The food tastes very good and is fresh but i would not recommend this restaurant for groups because you can order a limited of max 4 or 5 dishes at the... More
