i have been here a few times as a lone diner, i have had their house salad which was okay followed by their leek and potato soup (since i was still hungry) which i really liked because it wasnt salty - so much so that i ordered another one, and followed that with their leche flan - or creme caramel.
the next time, i had their oxtail, which was everything i was looking for, a rich sauce with the meat falling off the bone.
on another occassion, they happened to offer a selection of eat all you can tapas with bottomless wine. this seemed a good deal for P900.
i have yet to try their paella for one.
their food isnt outstanding but it's good enough to keep me coming back.

Nice and clean place. Nice food. Bad service. We came there at 2:00pm and the place wasn’t so busy, it was after the rush hour, so the waitresses disappeared every few minutes. Every time we wanted to call then we need to get up from our seat and enter the kitchen. Not even once they came to check on us… Besides that, their Tappas are good. The Mini burger is good, the Carpaccio is also good and the Garlic sautéed shrimps are nice. Ask to see the Dessert menu – all the dishes are good. If you are vegetarian don’t go to this restaurant, not only that you will not find anything edible, on the menu you will see that they define the “Salad greens with tempura shrimps” as a vegetarian dish… last time I checked shrimp was not a vegetable…

- overly sweet watered down sangria
- bland tapas. How can you mess up over 10 types of tapas?
- you get charged for bread
- no big bottle so water, just tiny ones
- no website? what business doesn't have a website in 2013??

Started with the beef carpacio slathered in olive oil and enjoyed the hot tapas sampler. The tomato tartar salad was a nice combination of flavors. We washed it down with some red sangria, to which we largely served ourselves for lack of service.

My boyfriend and I stopped over on a rainy Sunday afternoon and the outside sitting was perfect for us. My first disappointment - wifi is for inside only. But it's not important. The cool breeze covered for it anyway. Second disappointment - it took 30 mins to prepare the dish. We ordered a chicken paella which we shared and it was worth the wait. The good Spanish flavor is undeniably there. I also like the hot lemonade.

It's not my favorite but will visit them again for sure.
