10Best Says

This festive Spanish hotspot attracts a diverse clientele with sensational tapas and excellent wines and cocktails. Small-plate delicacies are much more than delicate though – they're boldly flavored and rich in appeal. Savory options include pickled anchovies, elegant Serrano ham, grilled shrimp, and herb-tinged potatoes. Specialities also include Salt Cod & Potato Cazuela, Pimientos de Padron, Croque Se0Š9or, Spanish Tortilla, Fried Potatoes with Herbs and Sea Salt. Couple them with an inventive drink made by Cesar's talented bartenders. Salads, sandwiches, and pastries are also available. Reservations not accepted, so get there early for dining. Smart casual dress. BART: Downtown Berkeley or North Berkeley
