The chef of La Taberna has a proven track record ( Zuzu, Atlas social and a few more) so Yes, you can expect Exceptional food here. Pintxos are a Spanish tapas that are truly Bite Size pieces of art. Each morsel is delicious and if you are a little bit adventurous, your taste buds will be delighted.
The smoked black cod was fantastic...a small piece of cod served in a tin (similar to that you would find oysters in) served with pan fried bread and dressed with a tasty olive oil. My mouth waters just thinking about it! We continued to ask for suggestions and we were thrilled with the results, a flavourful octopus and rich suckling pig. Each Pintxo is between $4 and $7 allowing you to try a variety of dishes.
The vibe is relaxed making it a wonderful place to share wine and great food. If you have a big appetite, you will sample many items before you fill up. Maybe not the right restaurant if you are starving but certainly the right restaurant for exceptional dining.
