We were here last week for a celebration with a big group of friends and were seated in the back. I think we actually ended up ordering everything on the menu and it was simply delicious! The service was great and the food was amazing. the Sangria, which I think we ordered at least 10 pitchers! were simply the Best I have ever had! I would say a lovely place with lovely food and reminds you straight of SPAIN!
I had heard many good things from friend about Andalu so I finally decided to give it a try. We had several of the tapas plates and they were all pretty strong, the fried macaroni and cheese tapas were a standout. The mojito I had wasn't mashed enough so their was to many be leaves of mint in there but otherwise it was really enjoyable. The waiter was very friendly and helpful in choosing tapas plates.
