“Good tapas and great ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

What a perfect place for a fun night out! Tables filled with couples and groups all seemed to enjoy the attentive and friendly service and variety of tasty tapas. Our table certainly did. The empanadas and seafood croquettes were great. The Morocco Meets Spain chicken dish sounded more interesting than it was, but we still enjoyed it. The ensalada de Mariscos was a lick-the-plate-clean seafood salad star. We enjoyed a nice sized pitcher of sangria, perfectly balanced flavors and not overly sweet like many served elsewhere. Flamenco dancers performed on a small stage tucked into the front corner of the dining room, and the music and dance was as good as any that we had found in Seville.

“The paella was yuck...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I was a groupon victim of this place. If I had paid full price I would've have been even more upset. The place is nice enough, the service was decent and they had an entertaining show when we went. We ordered Paella which was 1. Obviously not fresh 2. Had been reheated in a plastic container (I could taste the plastic in it). Thank goodness for the Sangria! Go for the Sangria and entertainment and you might be okay.

“VERY GOOD TAPAS AND PAELLA IN OLD TOWN PASADENA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The restaurant does not have valet parking. There is a large municipal parking structure about a block and a half from the restaurant with 90 minutes of free parking. There is limited amount of meter parking on the street near the restaurant.

The restaurant was full to capacity when we arrived. We were seated after a couple of minutes. The server are very busy with the number of tables they have to support.

There is an extensive menu Tapas, Salads, light fair and full meals. There are three or four different types of paella. The paella was very good compared to paella we had at other local restaurant and in Barcelona, Spain. The Tapas we ordered were very good,

The service was a little slow because the amount of tables that each services must copy.

“Overpriced food, horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The food is not worth the cost. The service is absolutely ridiculous. It took forever for someone to take our order, as well as deliver our food. Our water was not refilled and our plates were not cleared. My bill with my attached card was delivered to a different table, and when I checked my statement, the transaction was charged as $10 more than what I know I paid. This place is shady and there are plenty of other tapas bars in the area.
