Wonderful experience all around! My family is from Spain, and I haven’t had Spanish food this good in quite a long time - authentic and devious dishes, which I was so pleasantly surprised I was able to eat! The allergy menu is clearly marked with a good variety of options, especially the tapas/appetizers. The server was very kind and attentive, and gladly and patiently answered all of my gluten free questions. We shared the gambas (shrimp), boquerones (sardines, don’t knock it till you try it!), mejillones (muscles). The dishes that traditionally come with bread had option of coming on a bed of thick and delicious potato chips, which was a great idea letting us GF people still get the fun of absorbing the flavored oil the seafood is cooked in. I also had huevos fritos con aguacate (fried eggs with avocado) and they were probably the best fried eggs I’ve ever had. Adorable, fun, and delicious. Will definitely be going back!

They have an allergen menu on which the items without gluten ingredients are clearly marked. The server immediately pointed out that some items marked gluten free are fried in shared oil, and helped point out and verify that what I ordered didn't have anything fried. The food was amazing: I got the manchego (without the crackers), avocado goat cheese salad, and beef tripe chickpea stew.
