We visited Alexandria last September and had an amazing great dinner here. The food, sangria and wine were excellent. Liked it so much we went two nights in a row. Highly recommend!

4 of us. We each or exerted two dishes and shared, plus two desserts-it was all delish and was plenty for the four of us.

The food and service was good but I will never go back. This is one of the few places that allows smoking. Even though the bar is "separate" the tobacco stench permeated whole building

The big thing this place has going for it is that it is often open when other places are closed. The tapas are mediocre and drinks so-so--which is generous, I've had better Bloody Mary's on an airplane. Late night atmosphere in the bar is lacking...More

Hot & cold tapas of many different types are available here, and none of them disappointed. Service was good, prices were reasonable, and we didn't have to wait for either a table or very long for our food. Profiteroles for dessert were okay, though still...More
