Excellent food and service. We started with gambas al ajillo, chorizo, pulpo and croquetas. Great apetizers! Main dish: Paella, fresh, well done, tasty. Flan de chocolate for dessert, fantastic. Good sapnish wine at a reasonable price. Friendly and quick service. We'll be back soon.

Yummy food and great service. Really enjoyed and would recommend poached octopus and seafood paella. Wine and sangria a bit on expensive side, but pretty much what you would expect at white tablecloth restaurant

Etobicoke
Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
