Lincoln Park loves its tapas joints, and this is the granddaddy of them all. The ingredients are fresh and of good quality: Zesty Manchego, full-bodied olive oil, tangy anchovies and spicy chorizo fill the menu. Thick bacon is wrapped around juicy dates and roasted, and sherry tomato sauce tops tiny, tender meatballs. We can’t find a thread of saffron in our paella, but most of the loud, sangria-filled patrons don’t seem to mind.

This continues to be one of my favorite spots for a great dinner or even brunch! Most recently we took my mom for her birthday. The service is always great, the sangria is flowing, and the food is fantastic! Traditional Spanish tapas of every kind are available on a fairly large menu but the baked goat cheese, chicken empanada, and shaved brussels with manchego cheese and marcona almonds are a must! Make a reservation as this place fills up very quickly! 

TASTY and UNIQUE food! Great atmosphere! Love it! Really hard to get reservation for dinner though!

This place is amazing! Try the Hanger steak or short rib this season & top it off with a pitcher of sangria. Great atmosphere and the staff is always nice.

Best resturant in Lincoln Park! Delisious food, great variety, lots of drinks, resonably priced and great staff

Everything on the menu. Don't forget sangria. This is one LEY restaurant that always is a great time.

I've come here for brunch a lot but I haven't been to dinner here yet. For Father's Day I took my dad here and he had the absolute best time at the unlimited Bloody Mary bar. You can create you own with gazpacho, house-made mix, bacon, shrimp, celery and a whole bunch of other fixings. Our server suggested using pepper flavored vodka which really upgraded our drinks!
