There are a fair amount of genuinely Gf items here. But the food is terrible. Gelatinous and sweet. It has the feel of a touristy Spanish version of El Fenix, and the service and hospitality of a place looking to turn tables as fast as possible. The house salad was a delight, but the rest of the meal was mostly left untouched in a sea of creamy sweet, over cooked goo.

Delicious Spanish tapas! I’ve been two times (once at this location and once to the New Town), and both times it was great! Most items are naturally gluten free, and the staff were very accommodating. I went with non gluten free family, and we were able to share everything!! All the paellas are gluten free and delicious; they’re made to order, so it can be customised but it does take a bit longer.

Tapas! GF options are clearly marked on the menu. My husband and I shared the chicken skewers, chicken thighs, pancetta, asparagus, au gratin potatoes, roasted peppers, and GF bread. Everything was delicious!

Walked by after an evening tour and was amazed at the delicious smell whafting out to the sidewalk. Was excited to see that their menu had GF items clearly marked. Arranged our next day so we could specifically visit for lunch. Food was amazing, one of the top best meals I've ever had. Server was knowledgeable and when I ordered a dish for my daughter that was not GF he reiterated twice, once at ordering and again when food arrived, that I should avoid it. I wished our plans allowed us to return again before flying out.
