Fair Spanish food out of Spain. The callos a la Madrileña the morcilla is missing, the size of the serrano ham less of 2 onz. $7 (not recommended). The paella is more a kind of seafood rice than a paella, but very good. We tried the garlic fish (pescado al mojo de ajo) nothing extraordinary. I rather eat tapas than... More

This was a great place with great ambiance. The food here is not cheap some what pricey. But its authentic Spanish food that they serve here. I was told that there are known for their Paella and yes it was great. Also they have a great wine selection as well. Loved their fish croquets.

A paella lover will enjoy the food. Big servings, good wine. Not really luxurious but adequate. Can also try other Spanish dishes.

Its a great place to go with my grandparents, a variety of food and good spanish selection. It won't blow your mind but it will hit the spot, and its a good place to get sea food.

Altuna is a restaurant that has been along for many years. I personally, like its downtown (Zona 1) locale the best. Known for its good Paella, it also has a good selection of Tapas and other traditional dishes (callos, gambas, etc.). I find it to be family-oriented. You can't go wrong at Altuna!

Altuna is always reliable and a classical. I remember it since I was a child. Their "callos" are superb. And they had a wide variety of traditional Spanish dishes.
