A decent tapas place, good service. – They were nice to honor the $1 sangria even we sit at the dining table. The host brought some crayons for my daughter, which is a nice touch.
The marinated octopus was flavorful and seasoned well. The chicken dish was bathed in delicious sauce. However the $12 scallop dish came with three tiny little ones.... The meatballs were ok. The Spanish Chorizos were very salty. The low point was the undercooked seafood paella.
Overall the service was attentive but the food was mediocre. It is still a good place if you want to try some tapas.
Finally, A Great Tapas Restaurant in Bay Ridge – A group of us decided to try this new tapas place and were excited by what we found. Fine cheeses, dishes prepared with care, and excellent sangria (I'm partial to the white sangria). The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. A unique find in Bay Ridge that authentically represents Spain.
Citysearch Editorial Profile – The drink deals and specialty cocktails (like the signature blueberry mojito) are a major draw of this Bay Ridge tapas bar. They also offer an extensive menu of small plates, including salads, chorizos, and seafood; Dine amongst exposed brick and a long wooden bar, or opt to relax in the outdoor garden patio.
