“Spanish dishes worth looking for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

Best Paella ever! Surrounding area is industrial and not so exciting. Inside the building is a large restaurant that is a little plain looking, but I found the service to have some very attentive wait staff. I went several times with large groups of friends and was treated very well. It takes a while to wait the food (I have only ordered the Paellla there, but others enjoyed some of the other dishes). The food is prepared fresh, and to me, tasted very good. The wine selection was good too.

“Elegant Spanish restaurant in the Outer Mission District”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2009

Really excellent experience. An elegant, spacious interior completely at odds with the seediness of its Outer Mission neighborhood, with formally-dressed waiters - although it's casual dress for patrons. Although it's open to the public, it is associated with the Spanish cultural Center and seems to function as a dining club for the City's Spanish community. We started with a wonderful Spanish garlic soup seasoned with paprika and swimming with hunks of melting pork fat - heavenly. Then a selection of tapas including croquettes de bacalao and a fluffy tortilla, then paella valenciana with fresh shellfish and chorizo, finishing with beautifully-made and presented desserts incluing an excellent tiramisu - all washed down with fine Spanish wine. HIGHLY recommended !
