Went on a Sunday with a reservation for 5:30 (it closes at 7). Arrived early (5). Sat immediately in the entry dining room (restaurant has several side rooms). Band was playing (5 people) too loudly. When they finished a pianist started in the bar area which was far nicer. Service is good but we felt rushed, maybe due to the... More

It is a Spanish restaurant that has more than 20 years and still is one of the best in the city. The food is delicious and the attention is awesome. I recommend it also because is close to the center of the city.

I asked our waiter to surprise me. I had perfect salmon. Never tasted better. They made a special pasta for our daughter. The house wine... More

The setting has some caché and with some tweaks could be perceived as boutique while being of timeless elegance. The food was comforting but also very much from 30 years ago. Even... More

I loved the food here! The atmosphere is elegant and there were lots of businessmen. The paella was great as was the fish with shrimps and dressed with a creamy sauce, delicious, though cannot remember the name. The basket of bread was soft but be careful with the sauce as it has jalapeño peppers and it was really hot. Service... More

The rooms of the restaurants are nicely decorated however the atmosphere was very steril and did not give you a warm Feeling. Despite the efforts of the Servers we did not feel that this is going to be a nice evening with a relaxing surrounding. The... More
