Good food and service

Ate here when we couldn't find another restaurant we were looking for. Food was very good and able to get a couple of glasses of red wine here. Those running the place took very good care of us and very friendly, even after we had 4 18-20 year old girls join us late. My wife loved the Gazpacho... read more

We didn't get the paella. Maybe this was a mistake, I'm still not 100% sure. Anyway, we got the Spanish Sausage, P.Bravas, Meatballs, and one other dish which I can't quite remember. Note to everyone, these are not Tapa's, these are full sized plates to share. My partner and I eat alot of Spanish food in the UK and can... More

Great service, good prices for a beach front restaurant in playa. There's a lot of seaweed on the beach now in playa and this place is in front of a relatively clean beach.

Great little Spanish restaurant off the main drag of 5th ave. Food is fresh, tasty and delicious. The seafood paella is amazing and so is the sangria! The service is super friendly and relaxed and it's reasonably priced. We will be going back before we leave Playa.

A nice change from local food. All dishes were stunning and delicious. Owners were good fun and v spanish. My boyfriend lived in Spain for 6yrs and this was his favourite seafood paella since leaving! Very reasonable. 3 courses woth alcohol only $30US each. Also enough distance away from the 5th Ave. toursit hell

We wanted a change of pace after a week of nonstop Mexican and Mayan food, so came here. They have a good wine list, which was a nice change from margaritas, and the seafood paella was to die for.

I had the best experience with very good and real Spanish food and good place for drinks! It has a good location and the live music makes you have a great time, you can find another type of food when you are in Mexico, highly recommended!

Intention was to expose my 9 and 14 year old kiddos to some Spanish food. Complete failure. Sangria was good. Main dish ok. Tapas selections were lame. When the 9 year old identified the meatballs as Chef Boy Ardee - mom and dad LOL'ed. Clearly a future food critic! Check out Plank and Mayan Bistro - Fellow Advisors got those... More
