My daughter and I are season ticket holders for the Devils and when we want a nice meal at a fair price before the game we always choose Chateau of Spain. There's a wide variety of food to choose from from a simple cheeseburger to paella, all of which will satisfy. Two things to remember before going: First, while not... More

We went here for lunch on valentines day and i must say it was amazing. We were first seated downstairs which was loud and the tables so close to each other. I read a previous review where the manager commented and said you can asked to be seated upstairs. So we asked to be moved. Upstairs was so much better,... More

We went with a group of 8 prior to a Devil's game. Considering how the team played that night the dinner was the highlight of the evening. The service was very attentive but not fawning. The appetizers were excellent. The entrees were delicious. The portions copious. The prices fair for the quality of the food, service and ambiance.

We visited this restaurant upon the recommendation of the President of the Newark PBA. The recommendation was spot on. The food was great. Lobster and shrimp was excellent and in my opinion very reasonable. We ate upstairs in their dining room. It was quiet and yet crowded The service was excellent and the food prepared perfectly. It is located only... More

Picked this place based on reviews and close proximity to the Prudential Center where we were attending an event. First I thought this was a regular restaurant. Although we were sitting pretty far away from their bar, you still felt like you were in a pub, which is not what I was looking for. Plates were decent size and tasty,... More

Thanks for the feedback! We apologize for the timing of your meals coming out. Our server must have misunderstood you, but we’ll resolve to be better in the future. Also, our upstairs dining room is much more quiet if you’re looking for a different atmosphere for you and your family. We hope to see you again! More

There is a wide variety available. The food is well seasoned and well prepared and the service is courteous and attentive. Not exactly a romantic ambience but a nice enough place for a good meal. There are tv screens all over if you want to watch sports. There is a smallish bar in the back of the restaurant. I had... More

Very average decor, yet good food topped up with excellent service. Plenty vegetarian options. Vegetable payella is a great option! Portions are too big! Worth the money !
