The restaurant is just across the road from the Alma Hotel where we stayed. The cuisine is basically Spanish with Mexican additions. The restaurant specialises in seafood, especially octopus. We visited on a midweek evening in February; there was a warm and lively atmosphere; service was friendly and efficient and the meal was thoroughly enjoyable - had we stayed longer... More

We went to this restaurant when it was minus 5 outside and immediately felt the warmth. The seafood platter for 2 which i shared with my son as well as the octopus taken by my daughter and calamari by my wife were very well cooked and tender. The 1 litre house wine was fine as well. The waiter was very... More

The restaurant is located in the centre of Vienna, next to the Schwedenplatz U-Bahn, that makes it very easy to reach. The place is small and romantic, looking like the old bodegas in Castilla la Mancha. We asked for a glass of house red wine, a mixed plate of cold tapas and a mixed plate of marisco. We were pleasantly... More

We went there with my wife and one year old son. Usually i never go to 3 star restaurant, but this time we didn't have any internet and were very hungry and I picked this one to take a chance. We ordered a seafood soup and fried shrimps. The food was very good. We are happy that we picked this... More

The restaurant caught my eye as it looked nice form the outside. Worst choice: Bad wine to start. Then I ordered some fried prawns (gambas à l'ajillo) and they brought me those kind of frozen shrimp that does not taste like anything and it feels like you are schewing rubber. At that point i was making an effort to eat... More

The space is not unpleasant but the food is the worst I've ever eaten so far. I ordered a fried prawns and served me the worst frozen shrimps with rubber texture that I eat so far, and the lamb chops were dry and barely seasoned. A place to forget.

A lovely place, only visited once but would recommend it. We did wait a little while for our food to arrive and overheard other customers asking / questioning the waiter about the waiting time. However, our meal was delicious and a good size (seafood paella and octopus with parsley potatoes) and we heard other customers expressing positive comments about their... More

We visited this restaurant, as a convenient since it was a raining winy night. The quality of the food was mediocre, and not really Spanish in the taste and preparation, on top the prices are too high for the quality and taste of the food delivered. No puedo recomendar, este restaurante, better find better value somewhere else.

Thank Rosita
