The service was good but we found the chicken dishes bland and nothing special. The fried potato accompaniment for $7 was poor. Shrimp was ordinary as was the rice and beans.

Enjoyed our meal there on our last visit and made reservations for Christmas night. We enjoyed the appetizers and the Paella, but the service was brusque, rather than friendly as we had remembered.

The menu is very broad with many authentic dishes. Food is always fresh and delicious. Good service. We prefer sitting outside and people watching as we enjoy dining.
