Celebrated my 70th birthday here last evening and can't say enough about the courteous, warm staff and the scrumptious food. Everyone was happy with their selection - I enjoyed the paella and am still enjoying the leftovers. Would highly recommend for any group.

I would say 'possibly' The ingredients are gluten free. However the stock, if not made purely from bones and/or shells, may have some type of wheat based ingredient in it. Hopefully its a potato starch, but you should ask
