We were unable to get a reservation but lucked out when we took a chance and stopped in to see if any tables were available. There was a 45 minute wait, but we were able to walk around in some of the shops and were texted when our table was ready. We were seated at the bar which we really... More

So, this is a restaurant with great reviews, so why do I even bother? With no reservations, spouse and I decided to stop in at 4 pm for a taste and a beverage. Without reservations we were designated to one of the three bistro tables. Not a problem despite it's mini tabletop. A robust wine list and delectable tapas offerings... More

Went to this restaurant totally on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! Seated in the back which was nice, felt more private but it filled up fast. Looked at the menu that is your placement and we were unsure of what to start with so the waiter suggested that the chef would pick for us! Perfect!... More

This is A restaurant that could excel in NYC or any other major cullinary capital but happily exists right in Ashville. Have dined here five or six times. It is a cullinary destination onto itself. Esqueixada de Montaña with locally sourced raw trout on a bed of finely diced tomato is to die for. The squash soup is truly unique... More

My husband and I made reservations about a week in advance for November 25th. We arrived about 15 minutes early, but they were still able to seat us. I started off with an "Eclipse de Luna", containing local moonshine, sherry and local ginger ale. It went down very easy--too easy! I can't remember the names of all the dishes, but... More

Arrived at 5.30pm without a booking for an early dinner. All seating/tables were already reserved/booked but we managed to get seated on stools at the drink/food bar - that was absolutely fine. The menu was incredible with wonderful selection of seafood, meat, vegetable and regional Spanish dishes some of which we'd never seen outside of mainland Spain. The server who... More

Spanish tapas are creative and yummy. Be prepared to spend a lot of money. I recommend the chicken croquettes, roasted turnips with almonds. The mixed drinks are great as well.

Excellent and wide selection of tapas. Service is good and staff is friendly. If it served paella, it would have gotten my 5th star. What it serves instead is fideua, the noodle version of the paella. which is good but nothing beats a real paella.
