Been going for over 30 years, you cannot find better authentic Spainish Food and they even make some Mexican also! My favorites are the Choizo and Seafood Mariscada Wowie!

I dislike writing negative reviews! This place was recommended by one of our great servers at Cookshop, (Where we had our best meals.) so it could have been an off night. My wife's vegetarian paella was OK, but my seafood paella was way over salted...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.

get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
