The owners are real Spaniards who have shared their enthusiasm and love for their food and culture to Angelenos since the 1990's. The menu is extensive... More

This place has been around for years. It's busy; it's excellent in all respects and yet gets no hype. Perhaps that's the result of being very good at what you do and becoming an institution. Perfect Paella; perfect service. Doesn't that say it all?

Always love this place. Best tapas that I have found in LA. The scallop tapa is extremely good. The sangria is amazing. Good place to try.

As we are big fans of Paella and Spanish food in general, we decided to celebrate our 28th anniversary at what critics recommend as the place for Paella. We were not disappointed. The ambiance was delightful as were the hostess and waiters. We were treated very nicely and given a table by a window. We felt not rushed and truly... More

Overall this was such a great dinning experience. Drove an more than an hour to meet with our friends to celebrate his birthday. Although it doesn't have a kid friendly menu, everything is delicious and very authentic. Great atmosphere as well. Worth the drive for sure!!!
