We had the Coca de Langosta for an appetizer. It is a flatbread with Spanish chorizo, diced vine-ripe tomatoes, Maine lobster meat and Manchego cheese. It came out luke warm and was lackluster. We thought we were doomed and lured in by the hype of it being the oldest restaurant, until our main dish arrived. On the recommendation of the waiter, we got the Mariscos “Diablo”, which is a Combination of sautéed prawns, shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams in a spicy tomato sauce with blue crabmeat, onions, green peppers, garlic, white wine and chili peppers. Instead of the pasta, he suggested yellow rice, which gives the dish a paella feel without the 30 minute wait. It was outstanding and probably one of the best diablo dishes we have had.
