First 'm hard pressed to understand the negative reviews. I lived in Spain for over 3 years (USAF) and would eat "Momma's" paella every Sunday. For that matter I've had it all over Spain. It's always slightly different every place you go, that's the beauty...More

What a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by in a bustling atmosphere whilst tucking into tasty paella. We didn't need to go back for seconds but it was made clear we were welcome to. The paella may not come beautifully presented...More

Great place for lunch and the Paella is great and tasty. Good value but we mindful they only take cash. No cards accepted at all. If you want more you can do the "walk of shame" and go and get some more from the guys...More
