“Authentic gem. Best tapas in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2010

If you looking for an authentic place to eat where the local go to eat, this is the place. A friend of mine who live in PV took me there the first time. Went back again and was not disappointed. The place is family owned and operated. The restaurant is new and owned by a second generation Mexican family of mixed Spanish and German decent. I was told that the Paella is grandma's recipe from Spain. If you about are picky paellas, as I am, you may care to know that this is valencia style with real saffron.

The location is not in the touristy part of town. Try it once and you will walk away satisfied and certainly impressed with the chef's passion for cooking authentic Spanish food. I thin k they deliver too.
