Delightful dishes of stuffed canelons, crocquetes, Iberica ham, and seared octopus. Completed with a dark chocolate and ice cream sensation. Location, service and ambience was excellent with an open kitchen and plenty of window seating.

From starters to the paella, the food was excellent. They have the real bellota iberico, which was quite a treat!!! And the arroz negre was the best in town. It really made me nostalgic for Barcelona....

That's a yes to service. Efficient & friendly although we felt the server wasn't any more well versed about wine pairings than we were and we were fairly unsure since the wines were mostly (if not entirely) Spanish. The suggested wine was fine but unremarkable....More

We went with local friends who know this restaurant. Spanish. Great food. Expensive. Appetizer plus entree with no drinks was $45-$50 per person, but one pays for quality and uniqueness. I would go back. If this review is helpful then please indicate so below.
