I went with my wife to have dinner at this amazing Spanish restaurant, for sure the best Spanish restaurant in Chile! Thank you so much!

This is a good Spanish in Santiago. I recommend to make a reservation. The price is very correct as well as the service. My wife and I shared an appetizer and a main course and it was enough for us.

Paellas are dry and not really tasty. Service is rude and lacks of seriousness. Overall a very disappointing experience. Also understands that the delivery service takes hours.

This is not a restaurant you will find at tourist guides, however it is possibly better than most of the recommended ones. Since the jam croquetas until the paellas, everything was made to the perfection. Probably the best Spanish nationwide.

Personal attention from the owner. Great menu with tapas and entrees. Superb food. We changed our plans so that we could go back for another meal. If you don't go you will miss a treat

The restaurant itself is a very nice house located on a nice, yet difficult to get to using public transportation, area of the city. The paella (we ordered the traditional version, only seafood) was in fact delicious. Pair it with the Sangria and you already...More

Javier is the owner and excellent Chef here. He is very friendly and will take some time off from the kitchen to talk to customers, with a good sense of humor. Pick any dish and you will enjoy. The service is excellent, all around you...More
