Thoroughly enjoyed this Spanish cuisine experience. Funny thing is that the place is own by a mother/daughter team that are German- not Spanish. The service was excellent and the food was prepared and presented in the best of ways. This was a business trip. The food kept coming- different fish and meats prepared in different ways but all good (at leats the meat- I do not eat fish). The atmosphere is contemporary and a bit loud, but comfortable. Recommend you get a reservation as the place fills up fast. I had the Spanish coffee with brandy at the end- that was different! All the food was fresh and hot. Portions were right-sized- enough to enjoy, but not overwhelming.

The worst service I had in years.
I booked a table at 8 pm and we arrived exactly on time.
No one of the staff cared to welcome us and to show the table.
After waiting 5 minutes, I went to the bar, where staff members where discussing with each other, and I asked if someone could please show us the table we had booked.
The manager told me to wait.
After 5 more minutes I insisted on getting the table.
The Manager, who was still discussing with the staff, told me again to wait.
After 5 more minutes, I decided to to sit at one of the tables that where available.
Then the manager came to us to tell that this was not our table and that we should move, without saying where to.
So we went to the bar and sat down there.
We ordered wine as aperitve at the bar. The wine never came.
Finally, 25 minutes after entering the restaurant, someone showed us the table.
We had to wait another 15 minutes before getting a menu.
We ordered the food and asked for the wine we already ordered at the bar 30 minutes ago.
The wine came and the tapas we ordered arrived 60 minutes later.
We ordere another glas of wine. After 20 minutes I had to remind them we had ordered another glas of wine.
In addition to the terrible service, there was so much noise in the restaurant that it was almost impossible to understand each other talking at the table. The bad accoustics came from all the hard surfaces in the interior, like hard wooden floors, concrete walls and ceiling, large glass windows, metal stairs.
We spent 3 hours in the place, from 8 till 11pm, to have a few simple tapas.
Though the food was delicious, everything was spoiled by the bad service.

The ambience and service were great at La Paz. The dishes were creative, delicious and generous. The prices were reasonable. It's not a budget option, but it is worth the money. We spent around 50 Euros for two, which included splitting a bottle of wine.
