The food was awesome, the proprietor actually came out to talk to us and the staff were uber-friendly. The best thing about the restaurant is its location in the quiet suburb of Kyuna with birds in the trees and the quiet whistling of the wind....More

We went here on a Tuesday night and the place was dead. We were the only customers and now I know why! The restaurant didn't have anything on the menu, there was no ambience. The main restaurant is packed with tables but no one was...More

Being a spaniard i didn't have high expectations about the food in this Spanish restaurant. But the quality was acceptable and the main parts of the plates were almost authentic Spanish. The service, however, was slow and uneven. The ambience is cold and could be...More

Went for lunch on a Sunday and were the only people. Nice outdoor seating and cosy interior. Also, friendly waiter. Food is subpar and not Spanish, apart from very few dishes. Menu would say 'steak', but wouldn't tell you how it comes. No fish or...More

The food is average. The outside seating was good, indoors not so much. The wine was also quite good. It was my first time to have paella and i was soo disappointed. I think they should stick to tapas and bar service.

What a nightmare! I had heard that the restaurant had reasonable food, but didn’t expect it to be so disappointing. We ordered tapas and wine. We were gently greeted with bites of tortillas upon arrival. Unfortunately, they were tasteless, and topped with mayonnaise. Thereafter, we...More

The restaurant looked deserted with the waiter having no clue what the menu entailed. The food was undercooked accompanied with some fish that looked like and tasted like it had stayed frozen for too long. We complained to the owner/manager who was very rude and...More
