I loved this place from the tapas to the tequilas. I guess ultimately it could not survive Chef Castro's passing though it hung on for a long time. RIP Guillermo.

This place was such a surprise! It's unlike any Spanish/Mexican place I've ever eaten at. The food is excellent and well-prepared. A friend and I enjoyed sharing the Tapas. We ordered 3. The shrimp are large and very fresh...the sauces are incredible. Loved it!

I was in the mood for Mexican food, but this wasn't it. Food is not traditional, more like a fusion of non-Mexican, but spicy. Unfortunately, we started the meal with their "Perfect Margarita" that tasted a bit like used dishwater with a spritz of tequila....More
