  • The closest you'll get to Barcelona without a passport
  • Try anything and dip it in the orange sauce. It's better than the orange sauce from La Vic's in San Jose. www.grubcrawl.com
  • Best tapas in SF. Favorite are garlic shrimp, artichokes, and the potato omelette.
  • good sangria, the sauteed oysters too.
  • Happy hour daily from noon to 7pm. Glass of sangria $2.50, carafe $10
  • The lunch special is an outstanding deal at $7.07 (after tax) for a sandwich and a side. The Vegetariana sandwich is delicious and filling; The stewed zucchini is a touch watery though well-seasoned.
  • Very low quality food. A complete bastardization of Spanish tapas.
  • Amazing sangria... Order by the pitchers. Paella was delish. From the tapas menu, try the garlic chicken and potato pancakes. Yum.
  • Can't go wrong w/ grilled oysters & calamaries; of course with sangria(;
  • Restaurante espaol que cumple todos los tpicos al pie de la letra, pelis de Almodovar, sevillanas y el toro de Osborne en las paredes. La comida, sin ser lo mismo que en Espaa, es aceptable.
  • Bocata de Calamares + Estrella de Galicia= delicious
  • Basically nothing is good here. Period.
  • Coming from Barcelona, Spain. This place is nice. It might be the closest you will be to good tapas back in Spain. Which is nice. The sangria is really good I will give them that.
  • Go on Monday for "paella night" which comes with sangria and dulce flan on-the-house!
  • I've had a ton of patatas bravas and these are some of the best, easily. Including what I've tried in Barcelona. Every dish is fantastic here.
  • Patatas bravas is really good!
  • My once a week spot
  • Hillary Lindeman is a liar
  • A piece of Spain in SF! Sangria, pimientos del Padron, tortilla, garlic shrimp...just take your pick.
  • reverse happy hour 10pm to closing
