We had high expectations and couldn't wait to try the paella. It was only okay. The tapas and sangria was great. We had a reservation, arrived a few minutes early, and were given a horrible table. We asked to change and moved to a great...More

Celebrating graduation with a crowd on an evening full of same. We had a party of 11 for dinner and were one of the smaller groups in the restaurant! We waited 20 minutes to be seated because the party before us was still enjoying themselves,...More

Tortilla De Patatas was bland. The Seafood Paella was not good at all - too oily, bland, and they skimped on the clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops. Way over-priced too. Much better paella at Malaga and Tapas on Main Bethlehem, PA To make matters worse,...More

The next time I come (and there will be a next time), I'll have a better idea of what to order, and I might be tempted to give this restaurant five circles instead of four, because the best dishes are really tasty. They tend to...More

Delicious! Fresh! Authentic! Awesome! Paella Marinera is a must. If you go, BYOB and add it to their sangria. Located on Nassau between Washington & Harrison. Small parking lot behind it.

My lamb chops were good, the garlic shrimp ok, the bread very good. The brussel sprouts were really bad: mushy and tasteless. The Red Blend, from NJ no less was horrendous. Overlooking such basic deficiencies is sort of a yellow flag. Still, the ambiance was...More

The tapas and paella are very good here. I wasn't a fan of the sangria and would recommend bringing your own bottle of wine. It's a great place to go with a group so you can try a few different things. The portions of the...More
