Just visited this place and pleasantly surprised. Staff and food were great. Went early on a Sunday evening with my teenage daughter and both enjoyed it. Definitely going back there with the rest of the family.

Great atmosphere and delicious food. We usually sit by the bar and the bartenders are fun. Wearied the paella and was great.
