Avance: "Pretty good tapas" Top 5 Page for this destination San Rafael Restaurant Tip by jessicadf

San Rafael Restaurants: 25 reviews and 18 photos

A Spanish restaurant that mostly serves tapas, though they have a small selection of entrees. The tapas we tried were decent, though I've had better. The tomato sauces tasted flat and not spicy enough. The sangria though -- ah, the sangria!

They also have live music on weekends and, word has it, excellent Flamenco. On the Friday night that we went, however, they had a Brazilian duet playing. They were very good. Mellow, but good. But why Brazilian in a Spanish restaurant? Hmmm.

Favorite Dish: That would have to be the Sangria
