Hands down best paella in iron bound! Please try this place! It's old fashioned and could use a face lift but service is impeccable. One paella is enough for 3-4 people. Decent wine list. Good for big groups.

Hostess (matron) very pleasant and accommodating. Cozy authentic European atmosphere. Food was average, swordfish and shrimp tasted very "fishy", didn't smell too bad but didn't have that "fresh" taste. (grilled swordfish was dry). Parking was very interesting, a few doors down in a tight winding...More
