We waited an hour to get in, which seemed like an eternity, but once we did get in, the food arrived pretty quickly and it was great! Worth the wait, believe it or not. I saw other reviews criticizing the service. Well, the two waitresses we saw were running around the whole time we were in there, so I think they're not lazy or rude, they're just overworked. And give the restaurant credit for instituting a waiting list to make it clear who is next in line. Also, I don't understand why so many people criticized the ambience. Fine, it's not some fancy restaurant, but there's hardly anything wrong with it. It's just a basic restaurant that happens to serve great food.

I ordered the Jalea de mariscos. Mixed seafood fried with fish, calamari, shrimp and potato with a great yellow lemon sauce. I also ordered the arroz chaufa. Stir Fried rice with octopus, shrimp and calamari. Fantastic.
