The outside and indeed interior need a little attention but the food and especially the service was outstanding. The portions are rather small but the taste excellent. We enjoyed a very leisurely dinner chatting with the personable waiters. All in all a memorable meal. A...More

A rather, but cozy restaurant specializing in Spanish dishes, such as tapas, paella, etc. although not all dishes are really Spanish. One typical dessert is missing: crema catalana. They have leche flan instead which is a typical Filipino dish. Try the tapas, e.g. the mejillones...More

Detotiated. The one in makati is much better. Ambience became poor and service was anything else than before. Food also detoriated a lot.. a pity. Dont eat paella, overcooked and almost burnt. The paella in makati was very good.
