I've been here only once. The restaurant it's located on the square where the commune de Schaerbeek is. The restaurant it's quite small a few tables, low light, nice atmosphere and spanish music.
As we had a sit the waiter came to take our orders. Ask for the specials of the day.
Sangria was great, wine too and the plates delicious. Everything was very well presented and tasty. Flavours were mixing together very well and it might remind you to be in a nice spanish restaurant.
Service it's great waiters are willing to meet all your request in a short amount of time. On the other side we had to wait about 1 hour to get our main meal since we finish our starter.

Reservation it's a must since the place it's quite small and there's always plenty of people. Be careful with the open hours not every day and not every weekend it's open.

Small, cozy place with good ambiance and friendly service. Unfortunately though the paella is not real at the promised level nor the wine list. No manager or owner on site makes service impersonal.

Very Spanish and authentic restaurant in front of a very beautiful building
Meals are enormous and delicious
The 3 course menu is difficult to finish but taste excellent
Wine choice is great and price not too expensive
The style of the decoration is a bit oldish
I would recommend this restaurant to a friend!

We ate here on what was obviously a busy Friday night. We had booked for 9pm, but were contacted 24 hrs before our visit to ask if it could be moved to 9.30. We arrived at 9.30 to find the restaurant packed. We had to stand until at last, after 15 minutes, a table eventually left. We then ordered and we didn't see any food until nearly 10.30. Perhaps its all part of the Spanish experience. It would have been nice to have been offered a drink or something to compensate for the inconvenience but that didn't seem to occur to the (admittedly very cute) waiting staff.

So not a great start to our visit. However, when the food did arrive it was excellent. There is an extensive menu of mouthwatering spanish dishes and this was supplemented by several specials available on the night. We chose a variety of starters between us - iberian hams, manchego cheese, garlic prawns and calamari. It could not be faulted. For mains the three of us shared a mixed paella, and again it was well worth the wait - packed with chicken, squid, mussels and prawns. Probably the best paella I've tasted. Looking around at other diners all the food looked delicious.

The restaurant is small and has a real buzz. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
