As we are big fans of Paella and Spanish food in general, we decided to celebrate our 28th anniversary at what critics recommend as the place for Paella. We were not disappointed. The ambiance was delightful as were the hostess and waiters. We were treated very nicely and given a table by a window. We felt not rushed and truly... More

Overall this was such a great dinning experience. Drove an more than an hour to meet with our friends to celebrate his birthday. Although it doesn't have a kid friendly menu, everything is delicious and very authentic. Great atmosphere as well. Worth the drive for sure!!!

The paellas are good in this cozy restaurant. There is also a good selection of Spanish dishes. The servers take very well care of you. i found this restaurant by chance on my way to the Beverly Center and I'm glad I tried it out.

Like every year by our visit to LA, we always eat at this Spanish restaurant. There is plenty of choice from the extensive menu. The staff is attentive and friendly and does everything to be able to make you a good night. Is well worth a visit. Best book in advance!

Place was great :) small, intimate restaurant - the tapas are absolutely amazing. However, the paella was much to be desired. It was ok - it wasn't bad, but having been to Spain recently, I was expecting something much, much better. Menu can be confusing for some: each person must spend 20.00 worth of food/drinks at the table. For a... More

Bitter disappoint awaits those who expect a great Spanish dining experience. And any claims that this is the best paella in LA are delusional. But our disappointment with the food and service could not have prepared us for when the server came running after us on the sidewalk outside the restaurant complaining about her tip. Need I say that we... More
