“Never got served, non Spanish in the back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Not sure if you need to speak decent Spanish to get the experience so many people on here rave about. My husband and I were seated in the back and it soon became obvious that only non Spanish speakers were seated around us. As we sat and waited, an English family next to us was complaining that the mom never got her meal and when they asked about it the staff said they haven't cooked it yet (mind you her family was done eating theirs) frustrated she said don't bother. We hadn't even had our drink orders taken (after about ten minutes of waiting) so my husband and I looked at each other and said allowed "maybe we should leave" to which the English family said, "yes that's a good idea!". We left. This review obviously does not take into account the actual food, but I'd be careful to go if you don't speak decent Spanish.

“Decent food/decent prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

We had the paella for 2 people which included desert and sangria for around 30 euros. The food took 45 minutes to come out even though we were the first to order after the restaurant opened opened at 8pm. Service was friendly although their spoken english was limited. Menu was available in English and other languages. Can't speak too much for the taste of the paella dish since we've only had it once or twice before but it was good and filling for us.

“Good price, good location. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

Lots of restaraunt in this area are trying to rip off tourists, this place looks even more sincere in this kind of environment.

Good food. Good price. And location is good as well. Good place to try paella and tapas.

“Really good Paella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

We visited the Restaurant because of its good comments at Tripadvisator and I was really impressed. The staff was really friendly also they can`t speak english the tried there best. We had a lovely paella mixta for two with Sangria and dessert for just 15€ per person plus 8% tax or something and tips. With one tapas before the paella was even too much for two :D
