Being the only spanish restaurant in town and with a great location I came to this restaurant twice with different sets of friends expecting a little bit more than what I got. Food is ok, but nothing blew my mind. The first time we had all sorts of tapas. They were out on a couple of items which I'm fine with. The croquetas weren't really tasty, it was doughy-like. Shrimp nd octopus were nice. Mussels weren't cooked right since they tasted sandy still. Don't get me wrong, but being a cook, I tend to notice these details.
On my second visit me and my friends stepped in just aminutes before closing time so service was way quicker than ever, which made me smirk a bit. I had the Paella Meson, but it came out mushy and it was stuck to the bottom of the paella. It was tasty and I ate most of it, but I know that's not the way that I wanted it. Afterwards I heard you can ask how dry you want it but they never even offered me the choice.
It's a great place, the service is perfect and they will welcome you with a smile. It is not a bad review, it is just details they can improve to be even better!
