The customer service was slow, very little serving size, and the food wasn't good either. Neither me nor my girlfriend liked it. We left after sampling the food and just got something else

Came here to celebrate my anniversary with dinner and a show, recommend to call ahead a reserve a spot. Also, get there early and have drinks and tapas. I recommend having their famous sangria and the croquettas, the only problem, you will want more sangria and tapas'. Food and service were great, I loved the pallea, had to stop myself... More

When I moved up from San Diego I was excited to see that there was a location up in Riverside as well. The food is amazing. And they have good drinks as well. Great place for a date night.

Went for lunch hoping to have food like what we ate in Spain. Not even close. They need to rethink their pace they serve the food.
