All the small plates and the one entree, which the chef was kind enough to adjust a couple of veggies in it to accommodate a Ketogenic diet, were very tasty. Rich flavors and good presentation. In the small dining booth area with tiny tables to push together for couples, the music played too loudly above us to thoroughly enjoy conversation.... More

We came in on a Saturday around 11 for brunch. They don't have many tables but we got one and had coffee and food. The atmosphere is vey nice and we enjoyed sitting and visiting. With only 1 waiter/bartender and I'm assuming 1 cook, things move fairly slowly so I wouldn't recommend if you're in a hurry. The food we... More

It was so great that we almost ate there on the third night too....tried to show a little restraint. Our son lives in the Ballard area and he dines here regularly. Every dish we... More

A delightful tapas bar, with a creative menu of seasonal small plates with echoes of traditional Spanish flavor and Arab influences -- familiar favorites such as tortillas with eggs and potatoes, grilled shrimp with garlic and herbs, tasty morsels of grilled bacon-wrapped dates, squash blossoms filled with salmon mousse -- accompanied by a nice selection of cava bruts, wines, and...

You can get food here, and it's perfectly decent, but the real reason to come is for the drinks. The best margarita in the Pacific Northwest -- you can trust me, I've tried them ALL.

Good Spanish food in Seattle. I would venture back here. Funky, eclectic, just a touch of Seattle with your Spanish food. If you are looking for authentic Spanish food, this is not it. But this is good.

We found this place to be just...OK. The drinks were pretty good, but the tapas, we tried three types, did not have much flavor to them and were not that reasonably priced (we were not there for Happy Hour. Service was nothing to write home about.

We enjoyed a variety of excellent tapas with sangria at this small restaurant. I suspect this place fills up quickly, but we had no problems as we arrived on the early side. We will definitely go again when in Seattle.

so sad that this place has gone so far downhill. I loved it when it first opened and continued to go frequently throughout the years. the last two years however I'd say it's gotten progressively worse as I've trickled in. their food is no longer fresh- i've been served two different dishes cold on two different occasions implying it's pre...
