Most disappointing! Read reviews, braved the floods of old town to try this joint for dinner only to be greeted by locked doors! Need to check to see if restaurant is still in business.

Loved this place! The 2 of us ordered 5 different tapas, and each was very good. Fir dinner and drinks, our bill was only 240 pesos! We will definitely go back!

June is the dead season here in PV and we arrived around 8PM. At first I thought they were closed but no, as soon as we walked up the stairs the waiter came out. We were the first guests for the evening but more patrons followed. We had the Paella which was very good. The chef and waiter were super... More

One of the owners, Diego, was our waiter. It was that slow that night (as it was throughout the city). I think his wife does the cooking. Anyway, Diego was very friendly. The quality of the tapas was excellent and the paella (for 2) was the best I've had. I would return without question.

Nice quiet spot by the river. We had our choice of tables and picked one on the balcony by the river. Service was friendly but a bit unattentive. A free small tapas was provided with our sangria and beer (both good). We ordered a seafood+meat paella, a meat paella and one tapas dish. Everything was good but I would recommend... More

Rita and Diego treat you like family. The tapas are wonderful. Last year I ate here with friends 4 times in two weeks. Went again last nite. Rita's famous Spanish tortilla initial treat with garlic sauce set the stage. Then garlic,chile shrimp, green beans with cured ham, clams,and olive tapenade. Homemade bread to soak up the juices. Last year are... More

Have walked passed for a couple of years. It was suggested by a gentleman on the plane. Locked the white with red polka dot theme. Then menu was limited but the tapas we had were very good and truly tapas size. Prices were good too. The Spanish tortilla reminded me of the ones we had in Spain. Look forward to... More

Visited in 2013 and returned this year. Rita, one of the owners, brought us a free sample of the Spanish tortilla. Very good. Ordered garlic-chili shrimp ration, Spanish potatoes ration, green beans ration, and and an octopus Galetian style tapas. All wonderful. Love dipping the bread in the various sauces. Fabulous Sangria. It was a Wednesday so the restaurant was... More
