Good service, but expect to pay premium $30+ per person. Food is above average. It has an antique old look. I enjoyed my lunch.

What can I say one of my all time favorite restaurants. From the begining to end - The Atmosphere, Staff, Sangria, Spanish Ham (Jamon Iberico), Cheese (Queso Manchego). The Croquetas, Calamares, Pulpo, Paella, Trufa de Chocolate & Cafe con Leche - From start to finish all excellent. A fine dining experience that I highly recommend.

An elegant, quiet atmosphere in the Hato Rey area. Always with great service by its staff. Starting with typical Northern Spain appetizers, follow by delicious main courses dishes including fish or meat, and finishing it with dessert of the region.Nice wine list.Valet parking .

Excellent service and Spanish style food. Waiters are very friendly and have no problem modifying dishes and sides to please you. Food is somewhat expensive but it is worth it. It has good flavor and the service is part of the experience.

Went for lunch on a Sunday about two weeks ago with my parents, wife, and son. As soon as we got it you could "feel in the air" that it was going to be an excellent meal. We were promptly greeted and seated and offered water, drinks, and appetizers. For appetizers we had the fried calamari, manchego cheese, jamón ibérico,... More
