We ate dinner here on the first night of a 7-day stay in Santa Fe over Christmas 2011. It rapidly became our favorite restaraunt and we went back two more times.

It is a small restaurant with small, close tables. But it is extremely friendly with excellent service. Our three dinners were very different, but all menu choices are meant to be shared.

The first night we ordered off the extensive tapas menu. We found the serving sizes of individual items to vary but found 4 to be ample for 2 people, especially if you want to try dessert.

Salads seem to be very large. Our favorite of all the tapas was the sliced steak with a caramel and salt sauce. This not to be missed.

Another night we shared the excellent paella. This was more than ample for two. The third night we tried the cheese and sherry sampler.

Everything we ate was delicious. There are still many selections that we would try when we go back next Christmas.

There is an excellent selection of wines and sherries by the glass. We tended to order the blood orange sangria or the Spanish sparkling wines.

Our bills for the two of us with wine and tip were usually $100.

This is a fun dining experience and a nice alternative to the local New Mexican meals. It is a very popular restaurant with locals, so reservations are really advised.
