Definitely, our preferred place to watch the Champions League! After living in Madrid for more than 2 years and travelling all over Spain, I was so amazed to discover the best ever croquetas here... The staff is awesome, they remember the clients and their preferences, exactly like in Madrid :) Even frozen glasses to the nice, cold beer, and some... More

We ordered spinach croquette, melted in the mouth, octopus, great taste, a bit too much salt for us, potato dish was kids favorite, combination paella, excellent! Sangria was also good. Kids liked lemonade. Service was prompt. Waiter told us that all the dishes... More

This was chosen based on other reviews. The paella was decent and more importantly unique. For 4 policy with sangria and other itemstuff spent about 100$ us. What is worthe mentioning was the exceptional service. Very family friendly and attentive.

The croquets were fresh and tasty. The Lemonade was watered down. The Spanish omelet was ok. The fries and hamburgers were good. However, I was really disappointed with the Paella... More
