Five of us were on a business trip and our concierge sent us here when we asked for tapas. It did not disappoint. Everything we tried, from meats to veggies, signature cocktails to olives, was delicious. We had such a wonderful time!

We stopped in for some Tapas and wine. The duck confit wrapped in serrano ham is out of this world. Also had great brussel sprouts and heirloom tomato salad. There are so many more to try, we know we will go back.

My husband and I visited the city and chose Tinto for a nice dinner. It was outstanding. We had the tasting menu with a wine pairing. The octopus and green beans were particular highlights. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
