We were here a couple of months back, for a nice family dinner and believe me, we really had a nice time there.. we ordered tapas, and my favorites were lamb chops, rabbit and tuna. My mouth's watering while I am writing this.. the sauce with the tuna was something I never had before and the rabbit was cooked to... More

We dined there last year and had a terribly long wait. But the food and ambience was so good we thought we would give it another try. 2:35 for dinner. Our dinner came quickly but the other couple waited 20 more minutes. When we asked the waitress (who we never saw) she replied that Paella takes longer. After 40 minutes... More

Wandered to the music and found not only smiles, dancing but terrific tapas begging for my return. Sangria was delicious, setting magical. Would highly recommend this place for a taste of Spain. Great location with pretty white lights. All three dishes were superb but the bacon wrapped dates were exceptional.

Walked around the river area. Listened to live music and decided to have dinner. Arturo was our server. He was warm, welcoming and made us feel like we were regulars even though it was our first visit. We ordered the chef's special tasting menu. DELICIOUS. The only problem was we were too full to do more than taste the paella.... More

I was part of a large group who dined here as part of a conference. We had about 40 folks who dined with us on a pre-set menu which consisted of several courses. The staff did a very good job of keeping the courses flowing and the food was quite good. Many restaurants have a hard time with food quality... More

What could be better, sitting out on the patio overlooking the street activity and enjoying some great tapas and paella? Unfortunately the last part didn't work. The setting was terrific and the service all that we could ask for. We ordered three tapas consisting of mushrooms, mussels and chicken. All of them were very tasty and made us happy we... More

Great authentic tapas and entrees, but portions were smaller than prior visits. The Flamenco dancing and guitar was entertaining. Service is always great and the flavors of the foods, wonderful. Prices are medium to high and wish they served a little more for the prices.

Not enough staff to cover the very few tables occupied on Tuesday evening @ 7pm. Service is split between those who take orders, those who just serve food and those who bring wAter and bread. Should work just fine with enough staff but with only one person to take/correct orders in the restaurant we felt abandoned. We certainly couldn't get... More

The flamenco dancer was remarkable and the highlight of the evening. Food was consistently very good, including generous paellas. Beautiful setting, great for large groups (I was part of a party of ten).
