    Baby eels were fantastic, you must try. Octopus is really sensational. Matt was our waiter and was amazing!!!! His wine recommendation was spot on. The entire wait staff was attentive.

    Baby eels were awesome, you must try. Octopus is some of the best we've had. Matt was our waiter and was spectacular, as was all the wait staff who were attentive and constantly checking.

    Real Spanish food and wines. Ask about the specials and "Pimientos del Padrón" (not be listed). The "bravas", a must.

    Paella was exceptional. Be sure to get your order in early as it can take some time to come out.
