The foods was outstanding along with the service. We were all wishing we had a restaurant in Atlanta that compared to the quality of food we selected. We will revisit the next time in Newark.

We visited this restaurant before a concert we attended at NJPAC. The service was absolutely superb! My water glass was never empty. The food was abundant, and very tasty. The rice was cooked to perfection. The bread was wonderful. Soup included, also very yummy. Convenient location and free parking make this restaurant an even more attractive option! And we timed...

This is a wonderful restaurant. Very charming and quaint atmosphere with very friendly service. The food is tasty and the price is reasonable. I love the seafood dishes with the green garlic sauce. It is also nice that the restaurant has a free off street parking lot.

This was one of the first restaurants we visited in the Ironbound section of Newark over 20 years ago. It remains consistent and enjoyable. The long narrow dining room is a little tight, but the food is flavorful and the service accomplished.

We have eaten here with friends a dozen or more times over the past 3 years and we plan on going back again and again! Family run, fabulous food and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and attentive and they have a parking lot which is a real plus! If you're not sure where to eat tonight - come here!

Paella at its best. There's no more to add, get the paella, will not disappoint. Trip advisor is making add more details, paella, sangria and some dessert made this meal definitely memorable. The staff was accommodating as we had a large group. Another visit, we had 2 young children with us, and again they were accommodating.

The portions were large, the staff was friendly, the food was very rich, tasty and good. Not fine dining, good family, filling fun. My wife and three daughters were in a rush to get to the soccer game. This restaurant was highly recommended. I think portion size is a major factor in people loving this place. Two daughters had the... More
