If you read spanish you´ll enjoy reading the walls. The walls? Yes, the walls, while having a great paella with sangría or red wine!

What a fabulous night! We had a lovely meal at this restaurant, the staff could not have been more welcoming and endearing. We immensely enjoyed fantastic paella and tasty jugs of sangria! The owner was very attentive and looked after our every need, he was so sweet, some of the best service we have experienced in South America. Very generous... More

wide variety of authentic Latin America food. The Paella is the specialty and a very good choice. Be sure to accompany it with some of their sangria.

Here you can find really good Paella on the menu, with many different varieties to choose from. Really interesting decor, with shells and bottles, and warm lighting. Nice warm and friendly atmosphere.

I went here twice in two days. The food is as promised--I sampled five different dishes and two desserts. Just excellent. Service impeccable. When I delayed ordering, and the waiter was in another room waiting, he finally came and let me know that the cowbells hanging over each table are to get the waiter's attention. What a great idea!

The food was great, we had tapas and sangria. The service was warm and attentive and so sweet we just wanted to stay there and enjoy ourselves. Best restaurant experience we had in Asunción during a week where we ate out for lunch and dinner every day. Highly recommend!

Paella is definitely the specialty of the house, with eight varieties on offer and a giant paella dish which feeds 3-4 people. It has a real Spanish décor that makes you immediately comfortable. They have empty bottles and seashell mobiles dangling from the ceiling, while the walls are covered with proverbs from around the world and quotations by famous people,... More

I recemend to go here when you are really hungry and that you also come with a camera to take pictures of this beautiful place! This place has the best ham and wine I have ever tasted in Asunción Paraguay.

This is a fun experience. As soon as you walk in the door and up the stairs into the restaurant you know already that this is going to be different.. very likely you will either love it or hate it. No room here for middle ground. Idioms or wisecracks (based on your point of view) vie for wall space. Shells... More
