We have dined here twice in the past three weeks. the first time was a Saturday night. They were very busy. The place was full, including one table of twelve or more. Even so, the service was attentive. We had an appetizer of Spanish marinated olives-as good as any we had in Madrid-and Paella with calamari and shrimp-excellent. We each had the house red wine-Lagrimas de Maria-by the glass. It was reasonably priced and good.
Our second visit was on a Friday night. We were the first customers at 6:30 and only a couple more tables were filled when we left after 8:00. We had an appetizer of Morcilla and onions-terrific. We agreed that it was better than Morcilla we had in Madrid. I had the fried Anchovies and my wife had the Andalucian-style fried pork ribs. For some strange reason, although entrees come with a choice of potatoe, salad, or vegetable, the waiter said the anchovies didn't come with a side. I ordered french fries ($3.00). I'm glad I did, they were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The anchovies were good if a little fishy-very similar to Smelt in the U.S. My wife's fried ribs were outstanding-crisp but still moist with fried slivers of garlic. We had a bottle of Spanish Rioja (very reasonably priced at $26) that was excellent. As was true on our first visit the service was attentive without being intrusive.
Our only complaint is: on our first visit, some noisy and ill-behaved children were allowed to run around the tables in the patio where we sat, greatly annoying the diners, while their parents sat inside and the wait staff did nothing.
This restaurant has an extensive and interesting menu with good service and well-prepared food. I highly recommend it.
