I learned of this restaurant through the internet. While not far from the city center, a cab ride is required. It is a small place with about seating for forty persons. I had the paella with lobster. The rice was good if a bit on the wet side. The lobster was overcooked. My main problem with the dish was the... More

Salamanca is a great city with great people and food, bit it is not generally known for its paella - except for Cala Fornells. We got different recommendations for Fornells from the local people here and they were absolutely right. This is not pre-made paella, they take the time to make it and they make it right. Same goes for... More

Myself and my girlfriend ate here. The paella was disappointing, it was full of salt and not great. The starters were ok and the sangria was good value but that paella really let the meal down.

Saw the restaurant on Tripadvisor and went as a group of 6 friends. We spoke no Spanish and the staff no English but they couldn't have been nicer. Our waitress went through the menu with us on Google translate on her laptop. Her recommendations were great, the food and wine delicious and the service the friendliest you could imagine. Prices...

This restaurant is SO good. I've been here with my friends twice. I wish I'd discovered it earlier, because it's been the best food I've had in Spain so far. It's authentic, quaint, and intimate. The service is impeccable; all of the staff are so sweet and they've given us free appetizers or something similar every time we've gone. If... More

We experienced the most relaxed and friendly atmosphere from the moment we entered. Choosing our meals (no Spanish, pardon) was anything but a challenge as the help (and patience) provided by Noelia was not just exceptional but also added great fun to the event for us.
