“Wonderful tapas, impressive selection of wine, the best sangria”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Everything was perfect.

Tapas were the best I have tasted in Costa Rica. I suspect it was because of the imported Spanish ingredients used. The manchego was a true manchego made with sheep milk. The sangria was made with a good red wine unlike most places where cheap red wine were used.

The food is not cheap but you get what you pay for.

“Great food, beautiful architecture, and amazing atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We were here with some friends and loved it. Their paella was to die for. We ordered the "menu degustacion" and really enjoyed it. It had many dishes to try and not forget:)

“Small plates. Awful service”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

calamari, boquerones and papas bravas come in decent size. The rest is too small, no value for the price paid. Soups are ridiculously small and totally lack of flavor.
