Went to this place looking for a traditional paella. The food was not bad but it wasn't good enough for me to want to come back; it was accessible (compared to other restaurants nearby), nevertheless. The service was very lame; the waiters were distracted and didn't make an effort to make us feel welcome, and I actually add to ask twice for the bill.

We were invited to come in by a nice gentleman and we thought that the food would be ok; we were wrong. I ordered a lasagna (yes, I know I should had asked something Spanish but I didn't feel like) and it looked like frozen food to me. My companion's food wasn't good at all and we were really shocked when we got the bill: 40 €, including two drinks. Never again. They advertise paella at 6,90€, and I am pretty afraid it could taste like frozen food as well.

Ordered sirloin steak well done x two one with salad no dressing. Arrived without salad. Sent back and returned with salad no apology! Both steaks rare and the one without salad on chipped plate! Pointed out and plates removed meat recooked. Steaks grizzle disgusting! Left more than half on plate and waiter asked if i would like it recooked that would have been 3x for same meat! Offered coffee no thanks we paid 48 euro for cold soup half bottle wine and disgusting steak and awful service! Avoid at all costs not worth it
