My wife took me here, one of our favorite restaurants, for my birthday celebration. The food and wait service is always excellent and this dinner was no exception. I highly recommend the octopus appetizer and pork chop entree. We will be back very soon!!!

The food here is incredible. Lots of seafood that all looks great as well as tapas which you would expect to see in a Spanish restaurant. The filet of sole was delicious and the bacon wrapped figs divine.
