It's a tradition to come just to try the clericot, which they claim to have a great version and I can say it's the best one I've ever had. Don't get me wrong, food is amazing and you'll find a lot of traditional Spanish options,...More

This place was very overpriced, particularly for the low-quality food that they are serving. My tortilla española was runny and the chicken breast that I ordered was clearly a cheap cut- it still had veins/ligaments in it. On the bright side, the wait staff was...More
