Nice restaurant. Fantastic paellas. Fresh fish and shellfish. Really good food. Also good service, and a nice ambience in this restaurant in Juan Bravo. A bit pricy though, but worth it.

While staying in Salamanca, we tried that place to experience the "Valencian" experience and, as suggested by some, we had the lobster paella which was on the day's suggestions. While the formal environment of the restaurant is very pleasant and the service very attentive, we...More

beautiful condominium buildings that make up most

shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
