Family owned and just so kind! They have a secret sangria recipe that is to DIE for! Plus they have great food...home made. I got the Sea Bass Salad and just could not get enough. More expensive but well worth it.

Thank you very much for your comment.

It was a great evening for us sharing our past and present with you.

As you know our sangria is made in a tradicional way, following an ancient recipe from our family.

The same happens with the food, made in the tradicional way in order to transport you to Spain.

It was a pleasure to share that evening with you three.

Best regards

“Great high quality relaxing dinner out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

Personalized service & delicious food. We had the mahi mahi and steak specials and the sea bass. All were excellent. We also had the 2 liter sangria which was some of the best we've ever had. And the chocolate cake was unbelievable. All this and an appetizer for less than $200 for 4 adults.

“Excellent restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

The food at this place is simply wonderful and the service as well. I had gazpacho (tomato) soup which was just absolutely delicious. Also, I love the set up and decoration of this restaurant, it feels quite intimate and private. Definitely plan to go back very soon!

Do not leave this place with out having a pitch of sangria, the octopus is so tasty and the little cheese stuffed balls, can't remember the name but it was the owner's grandma's recipe. Excellent service!

“Excellent family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

We went to this restaurant because of tripAdvisor's recommendation and it did not disappoint. Very elegant and delicious Spanish food. We sat outside on the desk just after a downpour and our seats were quickly wiped and we enjoyed the ambience. The sangria was delicious and the staff were very friendly and since it was family-owned they were very proud of their food and the art that was on the walls. I had the special gazpacho and the sea bass salad and it was delicious and very well presented. It was off the beaten path and quite a different atmosphere than the mainstreet mayhem.
