This corner spot was an instant hit when it opened in the spring of 2014, with limited outdoor seating overlooking Pompey Square and more tables in a modern, high-ceilinged cafe interior. 
 
There are all the tapas classics—chorizo, spanish tortilla (potato omelette), Iberico ham, gambas pil pil (spicy prawns), ajoblanco (chilled almond soup)—but also dishes with a local twist, like snapper or hogfish ceviche, or the grouper piperade. 
 
Yes, each serving is small—you are supposed to order several—but the majority ring in in the $5 to $8 range, with only a few over $12, so a meal here won’t break the bank.
