I must say, there are a ton of new Tapas places in the city, many good and just as many bad. Tapas are originally from Spain but nowadays, the French, the Italians, and even the Japanese advertise Tapas. So in a way we lost the real meaning of tapas. I've been to this place a number of times and find it to be very good. Tapas is not about the decoration on a plate, but about the edible part of it. This place is more traditional, large portions, hearty food, no frills. I've been to many fancy tapas places in the city which are excellent, but you can eat three or four tapas in these places, spend $10-$12 per Tapa and leave hungry. But the place is looks nice and the dishes look great, and that's fine. but sometimes you just wanna EAT and feel like you weren't ripped off when you get that bill.
