We ate here 2 times and enjoyed it. Everyone is friendly. We had a selection of tapas and the chicken skewers. The Crianza wine we had was delcious. Everything was fairly priced and we loved the ambience.

I have been living in Prague for a couple years now and am a big fan of Paella. Usually its expensive and not very good. El centro surprised me, the paella is very good and at a good price. Very friendly as well!

We saw a picture of the pealla one day on facebook and then we stopped by. It was very good and the staff is very spanishy and friendly. This place is full of energy, and there is a small garden in the back.

We stopped by for some food and drinks, the restaurant itself gives off a spanish atmosphere which was nice. Food tasted very good and the Sangria also was very nice

Nice restaurant, the owner is actually Spanish. The food is quite authentic; its not cheap but is good quality. The paella is huge, so beware of over-ordering!

I am a sauce lover and mexican food lover so decided to give Spanish food a try. The waitress was very nice and I got extra sauce. The food tasted very good, we would return

This restaurant is run by a local Czech husband and his Guatemalan wife ... and the chef is Spanish. The mixture works well, with a nice assortment of Spanish, Central American, and some other items on the menu. For lunch my friends had the tacos...More

We found this place after a friend recommended it to us. The food was very good, fairly different than mexican food. I would have to say this one was probably better. Well done
