“Amazing Paella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

OMG! What can I say?! A tiny storefront of a place (three tables on the street, four small booths inside), kitchen the size of a walk-in closet and heavenly paella! Order the "paella de mariscos" with clams, mussels and whole shrimp then top it off with a Creme Catalan.

This place is off the main drag but well worth it. The owners were very friendly with the recommendations and we had the greatest seafood paella ever !

“Great food and plenty of vegie options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We went 3 times on our trip. Lots of choice, whether you just want to snack on the tapas dishes or tuck into a hearty paella. It's a great option for any time of day. Our waitress (who we totally loved) also recommended a chocolate dessert to us, for which we were very grateful, as it was delicious.

“Delicious Seafood Paella”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This Restaurant looks really cosy and inviting at night, with half a dozen tables outside and a few more inside along with the open kitchen and bar area. We took the last available table and waited and waited ..... a good 10 minutes or more before being asked if we would like a drink. We were just about to give up and leave. Anyway, we ordered the seafood paella and the owner explained it would take around 40 minutes as everything was prepared from scratch. This was fine with us and well worth waiting for as it was absolutely delicious! The only thing that was slightly off putting was that the Chef had a fag in his mouth or hand most of the time!, even whilst cooking!
Restaurant is closed on Mondays.
