EXCELLENT PAELLA

Very nice and cozy little restaurant. We had to wait half an hour to get a table. We had to wait one hour for the paella, but its the best I've ever had. Well worth the wait. For tapas, we had chorizo ( very good ), gambas al ajillo ( disappointing, size of the shrimps are very very small... read more

Our experience was not good, we went to the place and the place was full. NO accommodation. Tsk. They could have just told us that they were fully booked and not letting us stand there like fools who are waiting for service and stuff.

Call them up an order your paella ahead so it is ready when you arrive. The chef himself passed culinary art school in Spain and you will taste it. So he will only serve you a paella that has cooked during the requested time needed. You can get it as a single portion or a big group plate. Also the... More

The restaurant looks nice and for once a rare thing in the Philippines the staff were lovely, attentive and interested. The tapas we had were generaly good, homemade chorizo was a surprise and well.flavoured other than being a little too salty. The big problem was the paella de la casa which was so salty to make it completely inedible. We... More

Nice place with good food; the location is also accessible. I must admit though that the main reason why I want to keep coming to this restaurant is because of the insanely delicious leche flan. It's taste takes me to a different world; seriously ^_^
