I really was hoping for the food to taste like the Newark restaurants but not so. Service was slow and food was ok. Not my first choice.

My first time to experience Paella and it was certainly a dish I will remember forever. Nice little intimate restaurant downtown. I look forward to coming back and trying a different dish.

Food was good. Tables too close. Service was very good. 2 drinks at bar was $25 before tip (glass of wine & Manhattan). Meal (1 appetizer, 1 soup & Paellas) with sangria was $140 before tip. A bit overpriced in my view, but overall a nice evening.

I love this restaurant. It's a little bit old-fashioned .it's been in point Pleasant for a long time. But you could always get an excellent meal. There sangria is excellent. Everything is fresh. Always had a good meal here .never was disappointed. Worthy of a special occasion.

The food was very good but on the expensive side. We all had different options for dinner- lobster, steak, pasta and fish

All four of us had the Paella Valenciana. It was very robust as usual. Coupled with the red wine sangria made our late lunch today memorable.
