The place is good and the service was very good. I went there with my daughter and the paella could be better, also the shrimp we ordered. It wasn't bad, but we wish we had gone somewhere else. Maybe we were just not lucky so we cannot say we don't recommend the place.

This restaurant has been in the same location for as longs as I remember. Good Spanish food, best paella in town, always reliable. If you are not sure where to go to eat, this is a safe place. If you want more excitement, you can try to find something else.

This place offers nice Spanish dishes with other options in the menu for those not so enthusiastic about the restaurant's main courses. Order the Paella. It's a large dish that easily serves up to two.

Sorry, the service was very poor, the food was OK but not great, the sommelier was the best person there.

We were seated around 9pm. The restaurant was about half full and there were plenty of waiters around. They took our drink order after we were seated but it was another 15 minutes before we saw a menu. Food came out promptly and it was excellent. The seafood paella was perfect and enough for two to share. I'd go back... More

It was a nice dinner. We order a sea food dish to share and it tasted so good. We enjoy a very cold beer and a kind service. We strongly recommend you to go when visiting Pereira.
