A wide selection on both their liquor and dining menus. I tried a glass of Spanish red wine and it was outstanding. We tried two different types of paella and they were good. The waiter were great.

You are not expected to spend any money. But if you go to dinner you should probably allow yourself $50 a person with a drink and entree.
