When working in Trenton had gone there on a regular basis and the food and service was great. Met some friends there last night and it was, to say the least, outstanding. Service was above the top. We were not rushed. Everything was good. I will definitely be back.

Went here a couple weeks ago with my boyfriend because a friend of mine told me how great the food and servers were. This place does not disappoint! We had a great time and the food and service were wonderful! They had delicious bread and oil and the sangria is really tasty! All of the food is traditionally Spanish. I... More

This is a terrific restaurant. We had a reservation for a party of ten - no problem! The mood is always festive, the wait staff is terrific, and the food and drinks are excellent! Try a pitcher of sangria - you'll have a few more! The garlic sauce is great on whatever dish you choose. I recommend this place for... More

We were a large party of 13. I called ahead to reserve for a Tuesday night. Unfortunately we did not meet the minimum of 15 needed for the party dinner menu special but we ended up taking advantage of the dinner specials instead. We ordered empanadas, chorizo, roasted peppers with manchego and the sardines for appetizers. For dinner I ordered... More

Returned (again) to this restaurant last weekend. Food was spectacular, had my favorite Paella Marinara. Dining buddies also enjoyed their meal. If you are with 4 or less, request the front dining room. Large groups are seated in the back room and it can get extremely loud as people yell down the tables to their friends. The template for this... More

By far one of the best Portuguese/Spanish style restaurants in NJ. Very large menu and great prices. Fantastic Sangria and terrific appetizers. Filet Mignon with Lobster was great. Spanish rice is the best. Top notch service. get there early because the place is small however. Semi casual but on the up side.

This place is great. We have been several times over the past six months after not going for several years do to a bad experience. I am happy to say that all of the issues that caused us to stop going have been fixed. The best thing about this place is the sangria and the service, both of which are... More
