Great, festive vibe after a day touring philly! Lots of locals. Delicious drinks and lobster and seafood paella!

Nice restaurant essentially across the street from the American revolution museum. The food, service, and atmosphere were all very good. Some of the food was very salty -- I think that's authentic Spanish, but it may not be to everybody's taste. On the higher end...More

Fabulous selection of Spanish wines. My husband likes beer and was pleased with their beer list. The food is incredible. Four adults dined for dinner and shared six plates and two desserts. I highly recommend.

My wife and had lunch here several years ago, and returned for dinner. We had an excellent meal. Five tapas dishes was plenty for the two of us; younger and/or larger people might want one or two additional plates. Flavors were distinctive and varied. Wine...More

Yowch. Two visits ago, it wasn't that good. This last time - emphasis on LAST - it was downright inedible. Repulsive. To make matters worse, my wife requires a low-salt diet. I don't. Even though we specifically alerted our server, all of our food -...More
