I had seafood paella, the best authentic paella since I lived in Catalonia Spain in the 1960's. The chef is Spanish was the answer. We had amazing ceviches, seafood and don't forget their amazing cocktails. We ate there about 4 times, delicious food.

I agree with the review by Cindy B. We went to dinner last night expecting good food based on the reviews. I ordered the grilled shrimp. It was awful! It wasn’t grilled, it was anemic looking and very mushy. It had the consistency and taste...More

We ordered grilled shrimp and beef tenderloin. The shrimp were definitely not grilled, seemed to be boiled, standing in water on my plate. There were parts of the Shrimp that were so mushy they made me ill. I immediately stopped eating them. The tenderloin was...More
