Nothing flash from the point of view of decor but the food is simple, tasty and fresh. The $10 lunch paella is a great bargain. If you work in Newmarket give this a try for your lunch break.

We went for dinner here on a Wednesday night with my wife, two kids (11 and 13) and my mum who can't really eat spicy food. The restaurant was very cosy and pretty full. The food was great and much better than other Spanish restaurants...More

Went for lunch - it has an eclectic menu which includes traditional spanish tapas as well as European style food. It has a welcoming atmosphere and the staff were friendly and attentive.
