Everything we had was excellent from start to finish. Garlic shrimp were outstanding as were both our meals of steak and shell fish in a pot of spicy tomato sauce. Can't wait to return again.

The garlic shrimp appetizer is wonderful!! Of course you have to try the Paella! It is plentiful and can be shared because there is so much. Try the Red Velvet Cheesecake...delicious! They offer a key because parking is an issue. Be sure to make reservations...More

We were so excited and happy about this dinner that didn't take too many pictures. The Rodizio is amazing and their paella is to die for. Big servings. A paella is good for 2 and left over. Their parillasa meats are best cuts. No complains!...More

I have frecuented this restaurant many times and not once have I been disappointed. The wait staff is very friendly, accommodating, the food portions are generous, fresh and delicious. Great place to go in the weekday or to celebrate.
