  • In June of 2013 they updated the concept and the entire menu, it's delicious! Try the house drink with the rosemary, it's amazing!
  • Mixed seafood salad is solid. Grilled sardines also great. Love all of the tapas here, actually! Such a neighborhood gem.
  • Order the scallops w/ asparagus tapas! It's wonderful :)
  • Don't eat here the food is gross. Looked at it and lost my appetite. Grilled shrimp has eyes and shell on, which mean it wasn't cleaned.
  • The grilled sardines is amazing! And live music on a Saturday night? Great date spot!!
  • Get the red sangria! Try to guess the special ingredient they put in it!!
  • Great food! Amazing bartender Melissa! The coqutio is a must try;)
  • Good tapas options. Had a vegetarian paella that could have used more asparagus in it.
  • Not the greatest. Pricey and poor quality.
  • It's a joy to see a chef that takes such pride in his establishment. Everything is a delight!
  • Bread was the best part of the meal, which says it all!!!! (Bread was not even good, just something that could be bought in the convenient store next door)
  • Awful! Food is warmed up in the microwave. Paella is just plain rise with bits of seafood added. Deep fried fish was cooked from frozen and had a sour taste to it.
  • Worst service ever.
  • Wow. Food is truly terrible and overpriced. Huevos rancheros is a joke and their homefries are boiled in water. Thumbs down.
  • The shrimp is supposed to have the shell and head on. That's how it's grilled in El Mediterraneo.
  • Try the Albondigas
  • Im from Spain, and I can say that this place has the spanish food that is the closest to Spain i have ever tried in mahattan.
  • Overpriced food, yet lacking flavor.
  • This is one of my faves in Manhattan! Best wait staff I've experienced in a ling time
  • $5 margaritas weren't that big but they were tasty and strong.
