We ate there and took the pepper sauce steak, and one paella for two people. The paella was simple white rice and pepper without any complexity. A bit of chewy seafood, the steak meat was not good, the meat was also chewy like gum. The...More

Our whether Raul was kind and courteous. He was happy to make recommendations without being pushy. The food was simply delightful and exceptionally tasty. We return to dine with them several more occasions during our trip. I highly recommend the Ceviche and parrillada del rey

Ceviche is excellent! We also had the seafood and rice, another tasty dish! Our service was slow, but that was due to the shortage of staff that day.
