Great service, Outstanding Tapas, and wonderful paellas – The restaurant is very romantic, and reminds me of Spain so much! After going several times, we were always seated at the upper portion of the restaurant which overviews the street below. When going there, i recommend getting the sangria which is wonderful. We always get the pitcher filled with tons of fruit and of course the great fruity wine. When getting the tapas, I have tried nearly everything, but among my favorites are the pisto manchego, which has tons of veggies in their own sauce, the pollitos en salsa de ajo, which is tender chicken with another great garlic- y sauce on top, and the chorizo, a Spanish sausage. I have tried both the chicken and chorizo paella, and the seafood paella; I would definitely choose the seafood plate over the plainer one any day. It is filled with fresh shrimp, clams, mussels, chorizo, chicken, and squid. I'm not a huge seafood fan, but when mixed with the seasonings and the rice it is superb. After getting the plate for 2, and having both people eat a good amount, I am always left with enough for leftovers the next day. Don't miss out on this great treat in Milwaukee. The service is always great, they offer their honest opinions when it comes to what to order, and when my mom was cold (the upstairs gets very cold in winter, so bring a sweater) the waiter offered her some shots on the house to warm her up. So come with warm clothes in winter and enjoy the great Spanish atmosphere.
Tapas and sangria are the order of the day at Milwaukee's only Spanish restaurant. – The Scene
Once inside the doors, the strains of flamenco guitar and wonderful smells coming from the kitchen will transport you to Old World Spain. Whether you choose to sit at the bar or a small table in the tiny dining room at the back, come armed with a few friends and an appetite.
The menu is loaded with hot or cold appetizers, and a multitude of finger foods. Fresh mussels steamed in white wine with garlic and onions, skewers of chargrilled chicken, and a variety of olives, cheese and sausage are perfect with a glass of sherry or sangria. Huge iron skillets of slow-cooked paella are loaded with your choice of chicken, pork or seafood, more than enough to share with a few friends.
Dish to Die For
Paella is the national treasure of Spain, and a mainstay of the Don Quijote menu.
