After walking around for an hour looking for somewhere to eat, we were tired and ended up just randomly choosing this place to eat. I'm glad we did, the food was very tasty and was served very quickly. It is very reasonably priced for what you get, would defiantly recommend.

I was looking for a good place near the cathedral to eat a Paella and bumped into this restaurant. The food is amazing and the service is awesome! I had the best paella and ate till I couldn't stand anymore, since the dish would serve 2 people easily! The price is very good also! Definitely would recommend it.
