Celebrated my 70th birthday here last evening and can't say enough about the courteous, warm staff and the scrumptious food. Everyone was happy with their selection - I enjoyed the paella and am still enjoying the leftovers. Would highly recommend for any group.

I've been going here 3 times a year for about 12 years. So you could say I love this restaurant. I've recently become a vegetarian, and i'm not sure why this restaurant is listed as vegetarian friendly. They have ONE vegetarian item. It's the paella...More

The food was great, service was amazing. I was very surprised. Nothing much to look at from outside but once you step inside restaurant it’s like you stepped into some Spaniard restaurant the smell so inviting. Definitely recommend but watch out prices are really high.

This restaurant is consistently the best Spanish food restaurant out there and worth the drive from anywhere. They have the ability to handle heavy Friday and Saturday night crowds and still maintain good service.

I think they are closed based on the fact they are not taking reservations for that day on open table. You can book for the day before and the day afterwards.
