Wow this place is amazing. Get the ribs, the veggie croquet, chicken and ham. Big fan of the meatballs as well. Nothing here was bad just variations of amazing. I'm visiting and will be here each time I can be.

Come to happy hour (before 5 pm) get the sangria and tapas and enjoy the food. My favorites was the squid, although the mini hamburgers were pretty tasty as well.

This place was amazing! Our family stopped by here for dinner on a Thursday night and it was very crowded. It was a long wait but it was worth it. Because this is a tapas bar, it's hard to say what you should order. We honestly could have ordered the entire menu because everything was delicious - Bruselas, Pollo Croquetas, Jamon Croqueta, Paella Marinera, Calamares Fritos, Coliflor, Albondigas, and the Churros con Chocolate. I would probably say that the Albondigas is the weakest dish out of what we ordered and the strongest dishes were the Jamon Croqueta and the Paella Mariners. You can do takeout here, but if you are planning to dine, make sure to walk to the back where they have a little outdoor seating area.

Great Delicious food. Service is challenging on the note we were there with weird timing and uninformed / uncoordinated wait staff. It should get better over time, just be patient. The food is incredible.

Sooo let me start by saying the place does have potential but tonight was just-- not it. I was super excited to come here because the food looked amazing and the reviews were raving. We arrived around 6:20 and waited about 30 mins to be seated. We had the opportunity to check out the menu while we waited so when we sat down we knew exactly what to order. We ordered quite a few small plates and waited another 30 mins to get them. The lamb sliders are the best thing on the menus flavorful and just enough to be sort of filling. The chicken croquetas are also amazing. They came out fresh and hot and the aioli they were in was so flavorful. The Gambas a la Parilla had no flavor and were more burnt than they were charred. I also ordered the Albondigas but after an hour and 10 mins of waiting they never arrived so I asked if they could be taken off my Bill because at that point I was ready to go. The Cangrejo croquetas arrived stone cold after already waiting for them for 35 minutes. I asked for hot fresh ones and that took another 15-20 mins to get so by the time they arrived I was over it. It was definitely a busy night but there's no excuse for the wait times and no explanation or apology for it. They apologized at the end when I was paying and asked for the albondigas to be taken off. I'm not sure I'd give them another try ‍

Great food, whether takeout or eating in. Their (maybe pandemic only?) outdoor seating is around the block... including the restroom.

Really cute spot, unassuming. I love their little outdoor area. Food and drinks taste great. Hostess is very friendly and accommodating. Definitely suggest reserving ahead, walk ins are totally doable as well. They also have happy hour between 3-5pm. Can’t wait to go back:)

Came for lunch on a Wednesday. The patio entrance is around the corner in the parking area behind the restaurant. It was cute with lots of plants and string lights. Loved the Cangrejo. The Dungeness crab really shown and I like the sauce paired. El Clasico is perfect for people who are a fan of mild cheese and beef. The manchego flavour was strong and this happens to be one of my favourite cheeses. Beef patty had great flavour and texture. Loved the buns for both burgers. Bimi was just okay. The hazelnut-pistachio romseco which came with the broccolini was deep and flavourful. First time having anything like that. I will come back for dinner at some point to try the paella.

The croqueta burgers here will change your life! There are regular burgers, and then there are croqueta burgers with a deliciously fried cheese patty inside. YUM! Their El Clásico Croqueta Burger contains a beef patty, manchego cheese croqueta, CB sauce, lettuce, red onion, and bone marrow butter on an Acme bun. When you cut into or take a bite of the burger, the melted cheese literally oozes out from the croqueta. It is magic. The Cangrejo has a Dungeness crab and aged cheddar croqueta and uni aioli. This one doesn't ooze out like the El Clásico, but you'll definitely a delicious combination of crab and cheese in each bite of this burger. La Marcha also offers a variety of Spanish tapas that are great for sharing! I loved their Queso Y Chorizo Patatas Fritas (French Fries)! They are smothered in manchego cheese sauce, crispy chorizo flakes, and chives. I had never had Buñuelos (shrimp and sweet onion fritters), and now I'm a fan! These deep fried fritters are perfectly crispy and delicious when dipped in the lemon aioli. They have a beautiful outdoor patio space, which I really enjoyed! Definitely great for enjoying a nice meal with your friends, family, or significant other!

This was my 3rd time time having paella in the East Bay and it was satisfying, even though it was take out. I loved the taste and the size of the shrimp in the paella. I would love to repeat. BB
