This is the best Spanish restaurant in San Jose with a great menu and an excellent quality of service. The food is awesome, the wine is just perfect.

I went there couple of times. Both times, the place was not busy. The food was excellent The meat part of grilled steak was cooked to perfection, except that 1/4 of the steak was inedible fat. Side vegetable was grilled nicely. Grilled shrimps were large and tasted excellent. I highly recommend the Tocino de cielo for dessert.
As for price, it ain't cheap. It is definitely geared towards business people and travellers as clientele.

I popped in as i liked the look of the place.I just wanted a a bowl of soup or a snack
They said they were closed but said they would bring me some ham & cheese ?
Ok great...I sat @ the bar & asked the barman for a coke with ice.
So a plate of cheese arrived & a side plate of ham with some bread.
It was good & i enjoyed it, then asked for the check = $55 ?
For 6 slices of cheese & some ham, bread & a coke?
Even if it was imported directly from Barcelona. This must be a mistake....?
I thought for a second, am I in New York or in some 5 star Michelin resturant in London
No no thats the price they said. I paid it & took off, not going to loose sleep over $55
but it was a classic rip off no doubt.
