I really liked this place; tapas and wine are a nice way to wind down. After spending a week in Spain I think I judge all Sangria on an unfair standard, but I thought the paella was really good. The restaurant is small and quietly hidden behind the River Oaks Shopping center, making it an ideal spot for happy hour. You can sit and enjoy your drink and still be able to hear the person next to you. The service was really good, not once did my glass sit on empty nor did I feel like we were being rushed to leave?that goes a long way.

Pros: Yummy Paella

Cons: Sangria could have a little more kick

The place was very nice they have nice live music- I would suggest you should eat before and just go for the wine and music.
We went on a friday night and the food seemed old-like out of the fridge and microwaved it was very salty,oily and pricey - I will never eat here again- but will go back for some wine and music

A friend and I tried this out because of the great location and the menu looked good. The atmosphere was very nice with wine bottles gracing the walls. I had ordered the lamb skewers (entree) and my friend ordered one of the ham sandwiches. The flavors were actually wonderful, but the portion sizes -were not. For ten dollars, the skewers had 6 tiny chunks of lamb, and a very undersized portion of rice (think 1/3 cup). There were also a small smattering of veggies on the side. My friend and I had seen a review on another site saying to order extra ham/meat if you get the sandwich, so we did. Not only was it needed, it was still way too little meat for a sandwich. It was about 2-3 slices total AFTER the 'extra' order, I cant begin to imagine what it is usually supposed to be. At this point we were fairly disappointed. We finished our meal still a little hungry. Then the bill came. It was SIX DOLLARS for an extra slice of ham. ONE extra slice of ham. So for my $10 entree that was the size of a tapas, and the measly sandwich - I know I will not be going back. To sum it up, if you don't mind paying a lot for a little, this is a great place because the flavors are awesome. Also, Happy Hour (4-7) might be a different story since some dishes are 1/2-off, but I went for lunch so I cant say for certain.

Found it to be a very relaxing place to go after a movie. Tapas were great...the gazpacho trio is heavenly!

Cons: Nada

We went with a group of friends not knowing what to expect since all Spanish restaurants in Houston are really mediocre and with bad quality food. We were very surprised to find that the food ( tapas mostly) was great and the selection of wines was also incredible with great pricing. The empanadas were delicious as well as the snails . We had a white sangria ( different) that was like a mojito with mint and ginger, very refreshing for the summer. We will be back and tell our friends! Also the bar is beautiful and the atmosphere is almost like being in a Spanish tapa bar ( cleaner I must say) .
I am from Spain and this is as close as you can come to a tapas bar there and we were very happy with our experience
