This past weekend, we had a party of 9 people who went to this restaurant (12/8/12). The next day, 7 out of 9 of the people in our party were violently sick. We are most positive it was the salad that they serviced with the meal. I called the restaurant on Monday to speak with the manager and the manager was rude when I spoke with him regarding this issue. It's not like I wanted a free meal, I really just wanted to warn him especially if he was serving spoiled food to his customers. I will never ever go back to the this restaurant or recommend it to anyone, it could have killed all of us and will never risk that again. Don't be convinced by the "A" rating outside the door, it's very deceiving! The department of health will now be informed. Thank you

Whenever I eat here I feel as though I am really in Spain, enjoying a magnificent home style meal. The mood is perfect and the menu laced with a nice variety of classic Spanish appetizers and main courses. The desserts are also wonderful. My favoite is the Shrimp in green sauce ( garlicy) but you will find just about anything that pleases your own tastes. The paella is to kill for!
