The garlic bread was delicious, but our meals were average. I had the pork, but it tasted more like ham. Think we probably ordered badly. There wasn't many in the restaurant, but all seemed to know each other - a real locals hang out. It was very quaint and the waiters were nice.

We stayed at a nearby B&B and walked to this nearby restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by the special we had, with chicken, rice, lentils, salad, soup and dessert for a very reasonable price. Everything was delicious, and the soup was outstanding. I am an accomplished cook and have high standards, but this restaurant exceeded my expectations.

We ate the Bon Profit attached to the Elks Club on La Boca road. The meals were excellent. There were hardly any diners, so I hope it doesn't close for lack of patronage.

In Friday night you can enjoy a nice people making a show, singing spanish music, playing guitars. We take a Paella Marinera, excellent selection, good quality, fresh sea food. we enjoy the dinner with a bottle of wine. The service is excellent. I recommend this restaurant to the people like the spanish cousine.

Let me clarify that we have never eaten at this restaurant. We always order their paellas for special occasions (the Via Argentina place, not the Boca one which we have not used). It is THE best paella we have had. You pick up the paella (different sizes) and man, I don't know what they do but that think stays hot... More

Great Spanish restaurant. Have the Corvina in a creole sauce. The Corvina I had was very fresh. Service was good. Nice atmosphere. I did try the paella and it was very good. Good sandwiches as well. Great value as well.

It's a nice quite restaurant with good food and enough choises on the menu. We both had the paella and it was delicious! The wine was fairly good as well, and on top of that the waiter was super friendly and gave great service. The restaurant was almost empty when we got there, so it would be nice for the... More

Great value, the paella is standard and incredibly cheap. The service is good. It's not haute cuisine, but it's a great little neighborhood restaurant.

Bon profit can be busy at lunchtimes as the y have a special inclusive menu popular with local office workers. The evenings are usually quiet. The food is good, particularly their Paella Valenciana and corvina with shrimp sauce. Nice wine selection and very reasonable prices. They have Albariño white wine which is excellent for a fish dish. Service is good.
