What a surprise. Authentic, real Spanish flavors and service. Had the most amazing seafood paella - the best I have had yet in the USA. Not generally a fan of Sangria, but after a small sample, we ordered a pitcher. WOW, what a wonderful surprise...More

This is a smallish restaurant which specializes in tapas from Spain/Latiin America. The paella is excellent and so is the sangria.
