  • Siden YRude waiter, overbilled, never receive our dinner but was billed for it other peoples tab was put on ours. Glass of water had a lipstick stain but served to us with plain tap water from the sink.

    11111 by Siden Y

  • Elena V.Like the fun, kitschy space but let's be honest- food is very average. Sangria is subpar-think people rave about it as its only $5... Guess it's ok for price but nothing special, cheap ingredients.

    55555 by Elena V.

  • Chris S.Jerk Chicken, Spanish rice w black beans, seafood paella, Cajun shrimp, ceviche. Great portions. Service could be a little more attentive.

    55555 by Chris S.

  • Josh W.You'll come for the sangria. Don't miss the Chile glazed wings, smoky rich flavor fitting for a Spanish king. Cha cha cha also has the best guacamole you can get. Great balance of flavors.

    55555 by Josh W.

  • Amure SilvaAmazing Tapas!

    55555 by Amure Silva

  • TheEnigmatistToo tiny of a space. The bar in back is even more cramped. They have a good beer selection + tapas but it's hard to enjoy them when you have people waiting for you to finish.

    55555 by TheEnigmatist
