Without doubt the worst sandwich I've had. High priced and overpriced, the "spanish" sandwich was so full of undercooked and inedible gristly meat, I had to spit out almost every bite. The lady tending the bar with the stentorian voice did not help. She's at 95 decibels and counting and our quiet dining experience was not possible.

I would think you are referring to the Gaucho Sandwhich, which is prepared with flank steak. We certainly would have been happy to prepare you another with a better cut of meat, or something entirely different had it been brought to a managers attention. Either way, apologies for the bad experience. More

The chicken club was delicious and the sangria excellent. The atmosphere is lovely and perfect for people watching. Best of all, this place is dog-friendly!

We stopped by here on Veterans Day for lunch after being intrigued by the outside menu. We waited to be seated. We waited to be seated. We waited to be seated.

Cozy little tapas style eatery within the Colonial Quarter along the St. George Street alley. Despite its touristy setting this place felt authentic with a charming sense of calm. Drawn in by the Cuban Sandwich and Fish Tacos displayed on the menu (along with recommendations from nearby shop owners) we were pleasantly surprised. Great service, good food, and the best... More

Thank you, we really strive as a team to expand past the tourist only option. We own the fact that we are part of a tourist destination! We just try to have an offering that is better than that stereotype. Thank you for noticing our efforts! More

Went in during a slow point between lunch and dinner on a Friday afternoon - was oddly busy for the time of day but the waitresses and bartender were doing their best to look after every one. Bar tender was attentive - food came out VERY fast and was delicious. Recommend the blackened fish tacos but ask for less red... More

Definitely not a tapas restaurant and not the best sangria in town (both far from the real thing). Sangria had a vinegar taste to it (had to send it back), and hardly any tapas dishes in the menu - it is more Americanized. I do not recommend. Server was nice though with great outdoor patio and live music.

If tapas is your thing please visit Michael's Tasting Room on Cuna Street our partner restaurant. We have in most recent versions of our menu moved away from being tapas driven. As far as the sangria goes, we stand by our claim as "best sangria in town" Sorry it was not to your liking. More
