We liked it so much last time that we went back, and this time we tried the special "Paella". It was exactly like in Spain, full of flavour and fresh seafood. You have to order in advance as they make it only by request, enjoy!

We seeked this restaurant out from previous reviews and it did not dissapoint. The food was unique, affordable, well plated and delicious. The service was pleasant and timely and the sangria was so refreshing! Escape from the sun and visit this place, it's worth it!

Sangria, tapas! What more do you want! Really friendly place. Prices are reasonable for the high quality it serves. Do not shy away because it looks expensive, it is very affordable...far far from the prices we know back home. Enjoy!

Came here and showed them a printed Spanish card explaining celiac dietary restrictions and I would say that 80% of the menu was gluten free. They modified some dishes with corn tortillas in place of bread at times. The owner even came to the table to go through the dishes one by one with us. We had the tapas potatoes... More
