The seafood paella and tempura salmon were delicious. It's a great place to taste the Spanish kitchen. Service was great as well. Thanks to Joan.

Very good food (and being French I am demanding on it), excellent service. We had polpo and tortillas, their speciality is also some porc. Highly recommend it !

The food was excelent. We had risotto with shrimps, caesar salad, grilled baby squid and fried calamari and everything was truly delicious. Also, our waiter, Jhoan was really friendly and helpful. He also offered us something from the house. Definitely recommend it!

Husband and i found this place as we were close. Yet we didnt regret it. The food was perfect and the waiter,Jhuan, was amazing. We tried gazpacho and patatas bravas as starter and both were great. For main meal we took pulled beef and pork...and it was amazing. Served fast, hot and delicious. We also tried Cava, and at the end we took whole bottle ☺. Highly recommended!More

We walked in without reservations. It's intimate and wonderful. We went early evening and had no problem getting a table. It filled quickly, though, because the food was outstanding and lots of people didn't seem to mind... More

We just walked in and were lucky to get a table quickly. You might have to wait at the bar but you can get a drink. If there are two or four you should get seated quite quickly. Its not a very big place. But lovely food
