Perfect Paella

Went to La Rambla looking for some nice Seafood and as luck would have it there was Paella on the menu. The portion was generous enough that this 66 year old, 6'3", 250 lb man had plenty for lunch the next day. I chose the La Rambla Mixed Paella with Shrimp, Clams, Chicken, Chorizo, Green Peas... read more

Had wonderful tapas perfectly prepared especially if you like lots of flavor and lots of garlic. Veggies cooked perfectly as was the shrimp. Reasonably priced. Great service. Cocktails yummy especially the Hot Mama.

We had a great dinner here in Macminville. The menu was extensive and covered many of the classic tapas dishes. The green beans and epinadas were absolutely awesome. If you don't find the beer or wine on the menu you are looking for, ask to see next doors menu as the two restaurants are linked.

We were a little hesitant because we had not had great experiences with tapas restaurants but this is a winner. Great atmosphere, friendly waiters and good wine. Actually, ended up eating here for lunch the next day and it proved to be as good as the evening meal.

This was probably the nicest restaurant I have ever eaten at and boy was I happy I did! The food was beautiful and tasted wonderful! I'm used to eating fresh food from the farm and I could tell their food was fresh and never frozen. I highly encourage anyone to go and check it out. The chef has some real... More

I have never put too much thought into writing reviews however I admit I turn to these sites each time I travel and want to try something new. Since Mcminnville was once my hometown and a couple places are very deserving of good reviews I decided to give them just that. I'd like to start with La Rambla Restaurant &... More

We went on Halloween afternoon in pouring rain. The place was a third full. Our group of four has three small plates (the large size - meant to be shared). The first was fried green beans, sort of like tempura and excellent coupled with an aioli sauce for dipping. empanadas (5) which are luscious meat-filled fried pastries, and finally the... More

From the moment I walked through the French door entry, I felt charmed by the atmosphere of this delightful Spanish restaurant. This was my first visit with friends who had dined here before. I soon understood why they return! Our wait person was friendly, prompt, and efficient, and showed attention to detail in the manner in which she served us... More
