After hearing great reviews from friends, I decided to check it out. The atmosphere was great, the sangria was awesome. But the food... Not so much. The paella was over cooked and seafood was dry. The rice was very soupy. We also had the chicken and rice. Same results, dry over cooked under seasoned chicken and soupy rice. The outdoor... More

First of all, all dishes we ordered (calamari, combo bbq chicken & vack ribs) were too salty. Our chicken was still uncooked, we complained and later they brought us another portion of bbq chicken. Be on the alert my friends, check your bills before paying. We were charged an extra calamari dish plus an extra soda, that we did not... More

One of our business colleagues had heard of this place and convinced us to go to dinner immediately following work. It was Wednesday and we got there about 5:30; by the time we left at 7 it was busy and getting busier. Interesting décor, enormous portions, good choices, very attentive service and all for a very reasonable price. Try the... More

Such a disaster and the wait staff was insulting especially after hearing our complaints the wait staff decided to tell the other staff and we were lAughed out and mocked. Yuck... More

I was in town on travel and decided to stop in this place. The menu looked decent, when my food arrived it didn't have much flavor. My business partner also did not enjoy her food. It was just ok, nothing special just average.

Be prepared to eat yourself full! The staff is amazing (thank you Santos and Rafael) and the food is delicious. The servings are generous... we split the seafood platter for two between four. Comes with delicious bread as well. The sausage appetizer is amazing as well. I was so impressed!

Had dinner here one night and it was very enjoyable if not overwhelming. Prices are reasonable. I recommend the tuna. Portion sizes are really generous. There are lots of similar places in the Ironbound district of Newark, but this one is one I would go back to.
