Definetly the best Paella in Brussels and maybe in Belgium....
Just avoid to take starters and any other spanish stuff...the paella is a massive portion. The plate with patanegra is quite pricy but worth.to try...

This is a must-visit! Very pure tastes and fine cuisine. A little more expensive, you have to keep in mind, you'll pay around 80 € to 100€ if you go all the way: starter-main dish - dessert and wine. But it's all worth it. Try the pulpo with black ink: it is delicious. Atmosphere is romantic but quite 'dark' if you come with friends. Service is always kind and helpful. Come here with confidence. One if the best Spanish restaurants in Brussels.

Cosy, a bit dark but nice surroundings. Very friendly and helpful staff.

It's not the cheapest but the experience is very good: both service as food.

Tip: don't take the house wine (red). They have some excellent, and not too expensive wines which go very well with what they serve. But the house wine is not one of them.

Went there with friends, the place came highly recommended and we got a 50% discount because of a local food festival. Excellent food, the Pulpo a la Gallega was incredibly tender. Paella was very good. Service was ok but not special. One of the more expensive places. Very nice Paella afterwards. The place is located in a beautiful part of Schaerbeek next to the Commune. They offer vallet parking and the metro and bus stops are nearby. I will go again when there is another offer. We waited quite a bit but had been warned that a fresh Paella takes 50 minutes to prepare.

I went there for the second time yesterday and as I remembered from the previous one the food is amazing, really good quality and cooked in a wonderful way. I also like the fact that at the end of the night the cook comes out to the kitchen and you can see his smiling face.
Service ok, nothing special, no smiles, but that's not a surprise here..
It's not the cheapest option you can find, but it's normal to pay for quality. I always book via Lastminute.com so that I can have 20% discount.
