Very Good - 4 out of 5

Robert, Oakland CA Sat, 18 November 2017

Liked: Very good space; high ceilings and low noise level even when the restaurant was crowded. The large plates were very well prepared, and good quantity for the price.
Disliked: The tapas were very tasty, but a small quantity for the price. If you tried to make a meal out of tapas you would end up with a big bill and still be hungry.
