If you enjoy Tapas , this is the place to go. Wide range of Tapas to choose from and the best Patatas bravas in town. Arancini balls were also lovely. Service was fast and friendly and the chocolate Fondont was blissfully ooozy.

Lovely evening, casual set up, really nice vibe, all with a good selection of tapas and excellent wine list catering for every taste and budget. We had five tapas, four were excellent, the sliders were disappointingly cold. The service is friendly. Definitely a great place...More

We decided to visit Escondido on a recommendation. The venue is quaint, and we really enjoyed the relaxed vibe of the place. It was not busy when we arrived, and only half filled for lunch. Service was excellent and very attentive. Wine list is impressive...More
