Everytime I have visited this place I have enjoyed the sumptuous seafood paella with oodles of fresh and tender seafood, calamari salad, fried king prawns and grilled scollops. The $8 alcoholic sangria is a delight to the senses. The only thing they haven't perfected is churros. Everything else is simply superb!

Top marks for service and vibe!

Dropped in for my birthday lunch. Paella was awesome also the drinks. Potato croquet was my favourite. Nice atmosphere and the big paella was outstanding. Highly recommend and will be back :)

The chicken and chorizo paella was very nice. Travelling by myself a lot of paella restaurant won't do paella for 1.
This place did.
You can sit inside or out. Very pleasant when the weather allows.
Staff were friendly and accommodating.
Enjoyed it and will come back.
Great specials everyday.

Seafood Paella was delicious - my only criticism is the price is a bit high in my opinion.
Service was good, and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere.

We dropped in for some Friday afternoon happy hour drinks as we have done several times before.

We were advised that we could sit here for a short time as the place was booked out for a function. We were moved on after a few drinks even though the group hadn't arrived. Even when they arrived there was plenty of available seating.

We had happy hour drinks instead at the next door Pok Pok Junior. Better friendly service.

Even though we questioned the manager that we were regular clients, no sympathy was shown.

Not a great way to treat regular "bread and butter" customers over a one off function.
