place is not well visited.Food is o.k. Prices are very expensive.I have visited this place several times. When I was there on a Monday evening there were only 10 persons, altough the place is small.

Not only do they serve Paella but they have a selection of Tapas to also choose from. It's a nice place to go with a group and order a variety trying a little of everything.

Went there with another family. No reservations, but it was pretty open on a Saturday evening. We were quick to get seats. About 5 vegetarian options, but none of the dishes were memorable. Would probably go to other places for Tapas in Mountain View or...More

We visited this restaurant before seeing a Broadway San Jose production. We arrived fairly early and were the only ones in the restaurant for a while. While we were greeted warmly, it was an odd feeling to be the only patrons. The sangria was delicious...More

Severs are warm, atmosphere not elegant, but has an average paella. Comercial, but ok. Oxtail is also a god option and tastes fine... It's not an excellent Spanish cuisine, but allows you to enjoy a paella in San Jose.

We came here based upon reviews we saw. Picasso's doesn't open until 5:30pm, so if you want to dine earlier, try another place. Sangria was good, we'd ordered a pitcher for the table -- you get 4 glasses from it. The serve sliced bread (sliced...More

Basic furnishings, looks like the corner eatery especially with the butcher paper on top of the white tablecloths. The cost for each item was overpriced for what was served. The paella was so palefaced it was like they forgot to put the saffron in it...More
