Great Paella and Argentine Empanadas 11/16/2009

The waiting staff is very solicitous and the food is fantastic. My parents are from Santander Spain, but we have been everywhere in Spain and I can honestly say that the food served in this restaurant is the closest to the food one eats in the old country, very little difference. Pros: Courteous service and Good food more

Bad service 7/26/2008

So we finally decided to go to this restaurant. The service was BAD. the waiter was rude and when the check came, the amount was less as he wanted to put the remaining of the balance asa tip. The food was ok, but very BAD service. Pros: near pinkberry Cons: bad service more

Where's the service? 5/13/2008

The food is just okay. The service at this restaurant is terrible. The waitress went to run an errand and we were left with no table service. We had to go look for another waitress to pay our bill. Do not go to this restaurant!!! more

Best Paella in town... and take out too! 3/29/2007

My husband and I are addicted to authentic Spanish food, and Spain has pretty much the best Paella we've found in L.A. And at a VERY decent price. When we dine in we bring our own wine for a $10 corkage fee... but whenever we have a dinner party or people to entertain, we order ahead and take it home with us ... I put it in the oven on low till we're ready to eat and listo! \r Pros: Foo'ds good! Cons: Fancy it ain't... more

Authentic, neighborhood place with GREAT ROTISSERIE CHICKEN 2/12/2007

Great chicken and super reasonable. We pick it up all the time! Nice service, no nonsense, great little store with huge bags of Yerba Mate. Good selection of Spanish comfort food. Not a fancy tapas place, which is an asset ($14 for Serrano Ham anyone?). Good neighborhood joint. more

Not authentic!! Not good!! 1/18/2007

Unless your definition of authentic Spanish is downtrodden and impoverished then Spain restaurant is not for you, because that is exactly how to describe the neighborhood that this restaurant is located in. Food was mediocre at best while the prices reflected a mid- to high-end bistro in West LA (think Cobras & Matadors across from The Grove). The best value was a $20 paella that had 4 adult servings although it was slightly bland. Skip the overpriced appetizers. Mushrooms with garlic were a joke priced at $7 considering the mushrooms were from a 69-cent can (they didn't even taste good). You are better off paying a little more and eating at any of the 5 or 6 better Spanish tapas establishments, with better food, ambience, service, and not having to worry about being carjacked. Ironically, these are all listed inside CitySearch. \r \r What's more, no one in Spain restaurant actually came from Spain, unless you consider speaking Spanish the only requirement necessary. Pros: Decent paella Cons: Overpriced, bad area, more

Real Authentic Spanish Tapas!!! 5/1/2006

I love eating Spanish Tapas. I have been to quite a few in Los Angeles and so far this beats them all. The food is full of flavor, the service is awesome and the place is cozy. Driving up to the place might make you change your mind since it is next to a liquor store and not in the best area. Do not let this fool you. Once you walk in you will forget all that. The price is reasonable. We had a variety of tapas and 2 bottles of wine all for 60 bucks. I will definitly be dining here again! Pros: food, service, price Cons: area, parking more

Authentic Spanish food in L.A.! 3/29/2006

This is the most authentic Spanish food I've had outside of Spain! Their tapas are fabulous! And they added bonus is their deli with imported queso manchego, jamon serrano, chorizo and more! Cons: Parking is limited more

Great take-out for parties 2/20/2006

Don't be deceived by the external facade. Inside it's great and the food I've had so far has been a hit with everyone. I've used them numerous times for company & home parties. Their whole chickens are so moist w/ good flavor and the meat just falls off the bones. They can cut them up for you - making it easy to serve. The rice is excellent, mixed green salad, whole chickens & chicken empanadas are the perfect base for a party menu and you can add in the fillers elsewhere. The potato croquettes are sooo good too! They melt in your mouth! Pros: Convenient location, Good value, quality food Cons: Parking, $20 credit card limit more

worst Spanish meal I've ever had 10/25/2005

what disappointment! After reading such good reviews I expected more. We went on a flamenco night and only few tapas were available. The mushrooms and calamari were $7-8 each and the smallest portion I've seen for that price. The variedad plate $14 was 2 tiny ham sandwiches, a wedge of tortilla that was 2 bitefuls in size, and a tiny bowl of olives. The olive oil they brought for our bread tasted more like canola oil. the chicken paella was even more disappointing. They didn't even use the real paella rice and there was barely any chicken. To top it off, our $18 pitcher of sangria was mostly ice and even when we asked for less ice for the second pitcher, it was still packed w/ ice and barely any wine. I don't know if things changed since the last reviews but I would never recommend the restaurant to anyone. Pros: casual Cons: price, service, quality more

I`m from Spain and this is not good 10/22/2005

Yes I agree you can eat really good in Spain but definetely not in Spain Restaurant. Ridiculous small portions, yes I know what is a tapa and I know that is small, but don`t price tapas like they are main dishes.We order meat paella and was not good,actually one of the worst I`ve eaten, and believe me,I know how a paella should taste (I`ve eaten some good ones in Valencia) . We order sangria and at least half was ice. I have travelled quite a lot around Spain and I`ve enjoyed a lot eating there, and I`m sorry people will think this restaurant represent my country`s gastronomy. Cons: small portions, expensive, poor quality more

Best Tapas and Argentinan food in LA 9/23/2005

A little leary of going there for the area and it appears only as a food market. But once inside,greeted by the staff and had the food it was wonderful. Sangria is the best! Desserts were very typical of Spain and delicious. Pros: Great food, very friendly staff, family atmosphere Cons: parking not so good, area not that great more

Good food, good price and good service! 8/22/2005

I had been curious about the little restaurant in the strip mall for a while. The horror stories from the ""high end"" spanish restaurants in Los Angeles made me finally try it. I have to say their food was amazing! Authentic, delicious, and the price was just right! We had a nice bottle of wine and stuffed ourselves with some amazing Tapas for 67 dollars. The waitress was polite and helpful, helping us choose the right sizes and portions for 2. If you love GOOD spanish food, good service and a good price. This is the place! Pros: Delicious Food, Inexpensive, Authentic Cons: Parking more

finally an authentic spanish restaurant 7/17/2005

I had to decide between SPAIN and a 'nicer' place in West Hollywood for my birthday. Since it was my birthday I thought I'd go to the nicer place. BAD DECISION. so the next day I had to find out what I missed at SPAIN. It blew the socks off the place in We Ho. It was authentic, cheap and most of all the sangria was excellent. I'm so excited to have finally found an excellent authentic tapas place. Don't let the location fool you. Pros: authentic, cheap, great food Cons: location more

good food, freaky location 3/13/2005

We almost didn't go in. It's on Glendale Blvd in a mini mall, just before entering the 2 freeway going east and frankly didn't look like a place for good food. ""A"" Rating in Mar 2005. The Tapas were terrific. We had a bunch. Only the calamari was slightly overdone, the rest was authentic and perfectly seasoned. There is a little deli with Spanish and Argentinian food. The place is very clean. Lighting could use some help. Service is good. The owner is very accomodating. Great for a large group. Pros: excellent food Cons: lighting harsh, not the best location more

Little Spain, A BIG Surprise!!! 3/11/2005

I have first read about Spain in a little community paper and was intrigue to try it - especifically for the sangria and tapas. I finally decided to visit it just for the deli with my boyfirend who is a chef and, though I only tried the milanesa sandwich and chicken empanada... it was the best I have ever had. Amazing empanada! Balanced flavor, moist chicken filling and crust so flaky - it was beyond belief!! It was sooo good and, definitely worth the drive again!!! Pros: good food, affordable Cons: neighborhood more

By far the best. Really good and cheap 9/12/2004

This restarant was really good and really clean. I have eaten at many tapas places in LA and this was by far the best!!! I recommend the tapas (papas bravas) paella (mixta) and the sangria there. And the prices are unbelieveable. I also like the deli section where you can purchase items for spainish cooking. This restaurant took me back to Spain. Pros: inexpensive, good menu, leave happy more

Best tapas outside of Spain! 4/28/2003

I've been searching for a good tapas place ever since I got back from Spain four years ago. Finally ... a place that has great tapas at a great value! The papas bravas were amazing ... so were the croquetes ... and the tortilla was great too. The only thing I was disappointed at were the gambas al ajillo ... there was too much shrimp, and not enough flavor. But, the sangria was great too ... or if you want, you can take your own bottle of wine too. I can't wait 'till I go back. And ... they have a free flamenco show every few weeks. Just don't be scared by the neighborhood. We almost didn't go in, but luckily we changed our minds. Pros: Great Value Cons: Neighborhood more
