Spanish tapas in SF's Marina/Cow Hollow District

This is a good place if you're looking for authenticity (well, what I

think is authenticity at least). The staff is Spanish and very

knowledgable, and most importantly, very friendly! Our waiter was

fabulous and so friendly =)

The food itself was so-so. We had the gambas al ajillo (shrimp

with garlic sauce), pinchos morunos (pork skewers), the patatas bravas

con alioli (think fancy shmancy garlic fries), and the seafood+chicken

paella as our main dish. These were all just good, but nothing

special. The shrimp was really nothing special at all. The

potatoes were good... the paella was a bit too seafoody. We had

the apple crepes (a flambe), which were pretty unique - not your

typical crepes.

Even though the food wasn't spectacular, the service was

wonderful. I'd give this place a 2.5 if I could, but what brings

it down to a 2 instead of a 3 is that the tables are way too

small. When you have tapas, you're obviously going to have

muliple plates on your table, on top of your own personal plate and

bread plate and all the other stuff on the table. There just was not

enough room!
