Overall our experience here was fine. The cocktails were tasty and provided a food variety. The service was really slow, as in it took 2.5 hours to eat dinner with a reservation starting at 630. The food was ok but overall not a lot of crowd pleasers. The pork belly was far too fatty, the ropa Vieja had a very strong unusual smokey flavor and the medianoche could have had more mustard or pickles since it was a little bit dry.
I appreciate the mission and the atmosphere but the execution is a bit off.

We will seated quickly, even though we didn't have reservations. The drinks and food were delicious! I suggest getting here early, especially if you don't have reservations. We arrived right before the dinner rush.

The service was good, the atmosphere was serene unfortunately the food was disappointing. I asked for condiments for the pork, mojito was delicious and necessary for flavor. The flan was bitter and the expresso machine was broken with no coffee choices. The living wage 20% adjustment added to the bill was an insult and should have been discussed prior to seating.
Unfortunately I chose the wrong spot to dine for my first night in Durham.

Everything we tried is so good! We were here celebrating graduation and our server Doug was very welcoming and warm. Paella is a must-order, but do order in advance since it’ll take 45 minutes to make. The only part we are not too satisfied is their small portions. I could probably finish the Paella myself even though it said serve two on the menu.

Stellar service & tapas. Particularly good charcuterie.
....a lovely unexpected night in downtown Durham.. A " Living wage" restaurant that shines with enthusiastic staff with a deep knowledge of their sourcing & menu items.

Only leaving 4 stars because in the opinion of myself and my friends, the food & drinks are a bit pricey for what you get, but that also seems common for tapas places. However, our server Blake (sp) deserves all the stars you can give! They were excellent and made our experience super fun. They answered any and all questions we had and also made excellent suggestions. If we go back, it would be because of Blake!
