Reasonably priced selection of Spanish dishes usually attracts the customers of this long-standing restaurant. When craving for some paella, cochinillo, lengua, tapas and canonigo, this place is always a consideration!

I last ate in this restaurant 8 years ago and I had a very wonderful time. I am happy to note that the food is just as delicious as it was back then. I loved the paella,Callos, Cochinillo, and other Spanish dishes.

For the 800++ per person they charge at the buffet it wasn't worth it. Few dishes only and the food was cold.
