Dropped into Calle Ocho around noontime on a Saturday without reservations; hostess couldn't seat us at a table but the bar was wide open (note to self: reservations needed here!). For $29.99 per person, you select from 8-9 different menu items and 5-6 different apps...and get this: sangrias (4 whites and 4 reds to choose from) are included - as many as you can handle in 16-oz glasses for your party. My wife and I started with the guac with plantains and smoked house bacon apps, then selected the 'maiz y camarones' and 'ropa vieja' mains. Everything was very tasty, plentiful, and served with a smile. The place was hopping with every table full. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go back.

Central Park West location. Plenty of tapas and appetizers to select. Excellent hot breads of various types. Good list of wines. Last but not least, an impeccable seafood paella to share with your friends. Good service, good value.

Staying at the Excelsior and looking for different cuisine, this was the place to go. Fantastic service and excellent food.

Visit this restaurant frequently and the consistency of the food and service always remains the same. This latest time we had friends from out of town who were actually staying at the hotel the restaurant is in. We shared everything including 2 orders of paella and a large ceviche sampler. The restaurant has a pleasant decor and the servers are knowledgeable and helpful with making selections and explaining the menu. We will go again
