This place was fantastic! Bread and salad arrive immediately when you are seated. The menu selection surprised me at the number of options.
We were there for the Paella. And paella we had-4 different types. I will say that there were 4of us at dinner and we each ordered a different paella. All for of us could have had our fill with one pan of paella! They were huge and packed full of the meat we ordered in the selection. I had a Valencia or something like that. It had seafood, vernacular pasta and a creamy sauce! The dia love was spicy and good, too. We had two others also, a chicken and another seafood paella.
We shared and still had enough to feed anadditional 4-5 people.the wine selection was nice and atmosphere in the dining room was linen, candlelight. Would suggest business casual.
Service was great. Can't wait to go back.

Delicious seafood. Service is great and very professional. The salad put on the table for everyone has white asparagus. One of the best parts of the meal.

Like a quick trip to Portugal. And, there's parking in the back.

Wonderful Spanish restaurant in the Ironbound section of Newark. Huge building with several dining rooms and large bar. The food is always perfectly prepared and served by a large wait staff who appear to be running through the dining room. Excellent chorizo and shrimp in garlic sauce appetizers and every fish, seafood. Chicken & steak entrees are great. Save room for super deserts too. Valet parking available.

The 4.5 out of 5 rating on TripAdvisor is an understatement. This place truly deserves a 5 out of 5 rating. From the ambience to the great customer service, to the amazing food and desserts, this place is everything. Their shrimp risotto was to die for. The seafood paella wasn't bad, the steak, lobster, salad, mango guava cheesecake, and the wine were all delicious. I will definitely have to return to dine here on my next visit.
