Was looking for a nice place to have our last meal in the area. Found San Jaime. Food is very nice and plates are very generous. Had few seafood selections grilled and paella. Service was also fast and menu was bilingual.

Nice place, but the beef steak was quite dry and the octopus too soft (a bit overcooked). They charge for bread without even asking you at the beginning if you want or not. The desserts, crème caramel, supposedly were made at the restaurant, but we...More
