Found this place from a list of best cheap eats in New Orleans. It was exceptional! We've eaten at all the great steakhouses and the celebrity restaurants but this little hole in the wall was by far the best we experienced! We were each delivered...More

We love this place. Authentic Spanish food. Cozy atmosphere. Great sangria. I love the lamb stew. Across the street from the racetrack. We go after jazz fest each year. We have been going for 10 years. One of our favorites!

We had really really great combination Paella, combination of meat and seafood paella. We also ordered Fiduea also great. Antipasto? To die for... We're currently waiting for a killer combination of Flan, Almond Nougat and Chuflan.

AMAZING. My date and I ordered 2 tapas and a small paella and we couldn't finish our meal for 1. Great service, lots of garlic, good wine list and nice atmosphere.

Good meal and a tasty paella. Pretty consistent. Waitress was experienced and right on with her timing. Cork fee is up to $7 per bottle. Must say I miss the old days when it was free. One of the better places to be on a...More
