My friend and I came here after a DPAC matinee. We love the atmosphere, elegant and comfortable.. We ordered 5 tapas across the menu, and all were delicious and nicely presented. The wine was yummy too. Our waiter was fabulous. This is now one of my go to places for an great dining experience.

Loved this place. We had bacon wrapped dates, good. Albondigas, delicious! Stuffed peppers, good. Cheese plate, good. Flan, best I ever had. The room was nicely lit, big windows onto the street and not too bright, not too dark. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend.

This place is a gem! My wife and I passed through the town and decided to stop by. The restaurant had great atmosphere and server was extremely friendly and helpful. Every dish we ordered was cooked to perfection. I can taste the care and passion of the chef. I felt like being back in Spain again! Highly recommended!!!

We went here before a concert and it was an amazing experience. We had reservations just in case but there was space available when we got there. We sat at the bar and the service was amazing. We enjoyed the cocktails we ordered and the bartender was very helpful and friendly. The tapas were served as they were getting ready being the octopus the last dish we got. We tried the spicy lamb sausages, patatas ajoli, beet salad, crab stuffed piquillo peppers, pan con tomate and the octopus. Our favorite dish was the beet salad and the spicy lamb sausages. Everything was excellent and delicious and very delicate presentation. Very well seasoned and made with love for sure, hats off to the chefs!!! We really enjoyed every single dish and we will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu. We saw the paella in one table and we felt that it will be one of our next choices when we go back. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend it 🔥🔥🔥

We stopped here before walking to a show at DPAC. Friendly fast service and the food was great. Tapas style so maybe 2-3 dishes per person. Lovely experience all around.

Great date spot. They set a smooth atmosphere here. Great service from Seth. He gave his suggestions and they were great, especially the paella and gambas. Their version of steak frites was the best and the short rib is a must have. Definitely going back.

We had a great experience dining here with friends. They had no problem serving a party of 8 and the food was incredible! I really liked the variety we ordered, and would definitely recommend ordering in multiple rounds. The drinks were also to die for. We will be visiting this downtown Durham gem again soon!
