Come for the flamenco and the paella. Leave appreciating the popular version of gypsy kings and a quite tasty iberico ham and incredible croquets. Paella with seafood was fine but underwhelming saffron. Enough for 2 but we made the mistake of ordering 2 dishes. Better...More

Yes, this is in the walled city. If you are staying in the Holiday Inn by the Old City, it's about a 10 minute cab ride. Would not recommend walking from this location...the traffic is insane on this road.
