The food was great, service was amazing. I was very surprised. Nothing much to look at from outside but once you step inside restaurant it’s like you stepped into some Spaniard restaurant the smell so inviting. Definitely recommend but watch out prices are really high.

This restaurant is consistently the best Spanish food restaurant out there and worth the drive from anywhere. They have the ability to handle heavy Friday and Saturday night crowds and still maintain good service.

I think they are closed based on the fact they are not taking reservations for that day on open table. You can book for the day before and the day afterwards.
