The food is good but nothing great. Tapas at the bar is pretty good.Drinks were okay. It doesn't have a nice atmosphere. The best Spanish restaurant by far is Sangria 71.

I never knew what a tapas was until I went with my friends. Great small plate meals that you share with the table. It's an authentic Spain/Espana restaurant so enjoy some great wine, as in Tempranillo 🍷🍷🍷Sit back, relax, and enjoy Espana Tapas
