Paella at your table with impeccable service

We have been looking for a good Paella and we stumbled into this restaurant. First of all, I loved the fact that decor reminded me of a "who's who" elite club in California that takes pride in their service, food and facade. Same thing here, all of it. We had a waiter who took our order but it got... read more

The decor is reminiscent of a swish bar in a nice hotel: lots of wood paneling, white tablecloths and shiny glasses swinging from the central bar. However, don't be fooled. Our waiter was rude. Fully rude. The paella was the worst paella I have ever eaten in my entire life...I had the chicken and it contained the oddest piece of... More

We ignored the bad reviews as there was so much good. Can't fault the food. Beware they ask you if you want bread then charge you nearly 5Euros for it! We were served by 3 different waiters who constantly fussed...even putting the salt container back when I'd left it in front of me when walking past and I was trying... More

My husband and I wanted to stop in somewhere for a quick slice of tortilla espanola and a glass of wine. This fit the bill and was delicous! My white wine was light and tasty an our whole bill was 7 euro. Easy.

My first review of this restaurant was not accepted by Tripadvisor, because it offered to little relevant info about the establishment. I guess they are somewhat right. I was in the middle of my traumatic, culinary –first hand- experience in this place, and just wanted to send out a quick warning note to anyone who had plans on celebrating new... More

After reading all these contrasting experiences, we hoped it wouldn't be all that bad, decided to overlook several really alarming accounts and be optimistic! So we went there on new year's eve, and... well, what a really unforgettable meal for that kind of price! Starters: far below average. Lobster: half raw, gelatinous flesh (yes!) and covered with industrial sauce. Main... More

The food here is nothing more than average and the portions are relatively small in comparison to other restaurants we've eaten in. What really lets this place down is the staff... During our time in the restaurant, not one of them smiled. With so many people looking for work, it's shocking that the owner isn't demanding higher standards! One waitress... More

We decided to visit Restaurant Ferran as it was close to our hotel. Booking went fine, and we were politely received. There were six of us, and we came early for dinner according to Spanish standards.That can possible explain why the orders were mixed - in two ways. Some of us got another persons dish, and some got food we... More

Went here a few time this past summer for breakfast and had an excellent meal. The cafe con leche is strong and the English breakfast is delicious.
