We I my had the paella but it was delicious!!! Service as great and environment lovey. Plus they had good beer from Cuenca. Which in Ecuador.:: you never get good beer. So that was a huge deal!

Would love to go back and try other dishes. :)

.... Side note..... A bit pricey. But worth it.

The attention is perfect. The staff is super friendly and very well trained. The owners are there all the time.
The food is superb and with good portions.

I was not genuine Spanish cuisine. Very poor selection of vines. Service was ok but nothing special at all.

6 dollars for a small bottle of Heineken, 10 dollars for 5 slices of salami. Beers are not on the menu so I assume prices are set according to the customer. Not worth your time.

Since they were not, we had a late lunch there today. It would have been nice to have been hungrier and tried more dishes. We arrived around 2:30, about an hour before they close, and were immediately seated. I ordered a glass of red wine (followed by a second) and my wife had two glasses of sangria. Both were good, although the wine was a little cold. I let it sit for a few minutes and it reached a better temperature. The waiter brought a cup of a garbanzo bean/onion mixture, French bread, olive oil and vinegar and a few toasted crackers. Very nice as a starter. We ordered croquettes of cheese and chicken which were perfectly cooked. As light as a fried dish could be, and the filling was very tasty. We also ordered the paella mixta (includes chicken, shrimp and various shellfish). The menu notes that it takes 30 minutes, but we were fine sitting and talking quietly (not a noisy restaurant at all, which we appreciate- there is a TV, but it was not on) and enjoying our drinks. The paella was very good and there was plenty to eat. At the end, the proprietress served us a glass of amaretto on the rocks, gratis, and it was very good. She and my wife had a couple of friendly little conversations in Spanish during the time we were there. She is a really nice person.

A really nice way to spend a couple of hours.
