We had the tourist menu. So much great food to choose from and very generous portions! We had both Tierra and Mar. My husband loved his Pulpo and the Caldo Gallego was excellent.

It was just the worst restaurant I've been. Dirty plates all over the restaurant, dirty glasses (very dirty I must say), the plates being served were completely dirty on the bottom. It seems like they piled the plates with the food before they served it....More

Went here as it looked less a tourist trap than the others. We felt like eating Paella so we ordered a paella for two persons. They brought a paella big enough for 4 people with the price in accordance. The paella was OK but a...More
