I started with a Pulpo Pimenton which was a sauted/grilled octopus but with a strong papirka overtone. The seafood was tender but the dry taste of paprika was less interesting. I tried the Corvina (Sea Bass) Mediterrano which was a flavorful tender fish with a very strong sauce of tomatos, olives , onions... To me, the sauce detracted due to the strong flavor of the tomato, as if tomato paste was used as well as the olives. I did conclude the dinner with tthe Helado die Crema Carnavale which was place rich ice cream.

On the second visit, I tried some of the tapas. The seranno ham was thickly sliced but very good on the crusty bread provided. The Boqerones or fresh anchovies were tart and tender and again another pleasant tapa. The last item was the mussels which was a small bowl with 10 mussels and a meagre sauce to dip the bread into. I finished with a apple crumble which was okay.

The food is well prepared and the service is very polished.

Small but good selection of tapas. Main dishes are really good too!

I love going there with my family or friends and ordering a bunch of tapas.
It's great, we all get to try every dish.

What I like the most, is that they have dishes I don't see often around Costa Rica, like
the pork cheekbones and fresh Bacalao!

It has a very home feeling and quiet atmosphere.

The best days are when they are roasting a pig!

Their menu of Tapas isn’t as large as other Spanish restaurants but their main course have abundant flavor! They have everything from their pork "cochinillo", rabbit, fish, and beef options. Of course, a Spanish restaurant can’t "be" without the famous Paella! Estación Atocha offers savory paella for two or more persons!

Have craved sangria at this place since we were last here 2 years ago.
This is a great Spanish style restaurant with amazing tapas .the pulpa pimention is still one of my favorites with tender octopus with a paprika like spice. The blueberry sauce and shrimp also are amazing
Last night tried the grilled seafood special of the day with corvina ,shrimp, mussels and calamari and it did not disappoint.
The sangria though is amazing and is a must try.
