Dropped in without reservations for lunch and of course they could accommodate us.
We are always impressed with the warm welcome. It’s like coming home after a long absence. It does not matter how busy the place is the staff always have time to say hello, ask how you’ve been and sit you comfortably at a table with clean starched linen.
The gazpacho is outstanding. Always has been. Seasoned with cumin and fresh flavors it has pleased me time and again.
The luncheon paella is excellent. Large shrimp, great calamari, spicy chorizo and a nice small chicken breast grilled in the center.
Desserts are great but my favorite is the house speciality – a terrific meringue smothered in crème anglaise and sprinkled with cinnamon.
The wine list is brief but designed to complement everything on the menu and please most tastes.
Service is amazing; like watching a symphony. Two experienced professionals glide throughout the house, appear just when you need them, and are unnoticed the rest of the time. You wait for nothing.
One of the great restaurants in Ottawa!
