One of the things I look for in a restaurant is consistency. We have dined here a number of times and the paella has always been consistently great. It claims to be the best outside of Spain but I would go as far as as to say that I have had some in Spain which have fallen well below. Perhaps those who complain about it have never been to Spain! Have the one cooked in the big pans and wash it down with a glass of sangria.

Delicious food! I always get the Big Pan Paella - it's good and is served quickly. I brought my mom who grew up with homemade paella from her Spanish grandmother and she loved it too! The sangria is very flavorful - you can taste the spices.

The paella is cooked on the street: Enough said. Visually, you are hooked, and its worth stopping to eat here. A range of different paellas, and you can sit outside - even in the winter.

Definitely not a "fine dining" establishment BUT very enjoyable experience.
Somewhat down to earth and super friendly staff with great tasting food at reasonable cost, how can you go wrong?
