The restaurant is housed in what was a private club. The architecture is outstanding and beautifully maintained. This was the feature that attracted us to the Restaurant. I had Lamb Shanks which were superbly cooked. The staff are professional.

The sangria was very good and the bread and aioli was a good way to start the meal. Was a bit expensive for what... More

this place is the 2nd stop right off the plane from NYC and the last place to stop before boarding to go back to NYC. Reasonable pricing, great atmosphere and always good food. Thank you Casa De Espana for always making me come back for more. Tom

The owner Mario is there to greet you and he spends some time to chat interacting with everyone. Great selection of wines, we had as an appetizer "huevos estrellados" its not in the menu (ask your...

Wonderful Food! Beautiful location at Casa Espana. My family loves traditional Spanish food and rarely pass up the opportunity wherever we may find ourselves to enjoy a great Paella, Ceviche or Iberco ham tapa. We started off with the croquettas de jamon which reminded me of my grandmothers. They were lightly breaded on the outside and on the inside a... More

We started with ceviche which was wonderful. And of course we had to have the lobster risotto(paella). It was beautifully cooked. I know we had... More

We truly felt like we had traveled back to Spain. The restaurant is modern but still offers old world cuisine. We each had the pulpo gall ego as an appetizer... More

This Restaurant is tucked away in the second floor of the Casa De Espana, in itself a memorable puertorrican institution representing some of the very... More
