To say we were disappointed would be an understatement. Beautiful setting, friendly staff...but the food! Calamari - one portion cold the other hot, but hard, brown and over cooked. The eagerly anticipated Croquetas de Jamón were over fried brown bullets that tasted of burnt oil. Meatballs similarly were hard and with no semblance of Spanish flavor other than the Manchego thrown on top. Something as simple and usually sublime as chorizo in cider was made with the most flavorless chorizo I think we have ever tasted. The Pil Pil prawns had the taste of an unwanted herb (corriander?) quite raw garlic slivers and the oil, which is usually the greatest guilty pleasure, was not touched after the first disappointing dip. In a Spanish tapas bar to have so few Spanish wines to choose from was a big mistake. To reiterate, the wait staff were lovely but tapas, that should be a quick affair, took almost 40 minutes to make it to our table. Evening ruined.
