Great staff. Friendly and hospitable. The food was ok. I can't remember the drinks but maybe that's good. Paella is the best thing here...

Superb Spanish cuisine. Immaculate restaurant. Friendly and attentive owners. Great tapas, meals and paella. Ask for Aitor if you sit at the bar. Very friendly.

My husband and I recently went to this fabulous, classic restaurant for an early dinner. We sat at the bar and ordered from "The Taste of Hartford" menu. We liked everything we ate. I was particularly impressed by the rice pudding I had for dessert. It tasted exactly like the one my mother used to make. The bartender was friendly... More

Went here for tapas at the bar, and have to say that these dishes were very similar to what I had when I went to Spain. First off the service at the bar was excellent and friendly with the owner introducing himself personally, To start we had the octopus tapa and then shared a salad with the cured cod entree... More

They serve authentic Spanish food and have a great staff. We also had a company function there that was fantastic.

We came to this place for its well known Paella. The dish was well cooked but just not as great as we expected, especially after waiting for about 30 mins...But I would give it a 4 for the food in general. The reason I have 3 is because of the service. As my husband and I got a cold, we... More

Paella and white sangria coupled with Jamon Serrano and Machego appetizer made for a wonderful experience. Plan ahead and make reservations but get there.

Had the Calamari app, it was a nice change. They grilled and sautéed it in garlic oil. The tenderness was some of the best I've had and the flavors were a welcomed change, a bit salty though. The chicken and chorizo paella was great, and will definitely bring me back here again!

The passage of time invariably brings changes, some for the better and some for the worse. Though we have been frequenting this Spanish-inspired restaurant for approximately 25 years, it has been almost 4 years since we last crossed its threshold. The small parking lot was nearly filled to capacity at 12:30PM on a Wednesday afternoon while the dining room continues... More

Went to lunch recently. Two of us had the Monkfish special. It was supurb. Done to pefrection with great seasoning and presentation. Nice lunch size portion and reasonable price for the quality of the meal. One of our group had a pasta dish and raved about it. Only complaint is that they don't offer soups in cups. The bean soup...
