We went two couples and order Paella wich is the restaurant specialty. It was edible but did not made me a loyal customer. I other words, I don't recommend the trip to the country where it located to eat a "not that good" paella.

Delicious tapas, great atmosphere, and first rate service are hallmarks of this incredible little jewel. I've eaten there perhaps a dozen times, and it has never disappointed. The friendly owner, Vicente, is almost always present, and that keeps quality high. Even the sangria is far...More
