Fodor's Review

A chalkboard on the exposed brick wall lists eight dry and six sweet sherries to start (or finish), and there are Spanish and Portuguese wines to accompany your selection of tapas and raciones (larger shared plates). Seated at a table or on a stool at the bar, you could begin with rabbit empanadilla (pastry pockets) and melt-in-your-mouth black pudding topped with a fried quail egg, and follow with vine-leaf wrapped sardines with pistachio and orange blossom sauce. But leave room for dessert; the churros (Spanish donuts) and chocolate are sinful, while the Pedro Ximenez and muscatel ice cream could make an Atheist believe in a culinary god.
