Fantastic food and this time we had Myda serving us, she made the evening even better! Service is usually typically Spanish, you can be left with no drink and no menu or just waiting for your food, but we were lucky enough to get Myda,...More

Limited menu and food was quite disappointing. No mixed paella, choice is either chicken or seafood not both. Some of the tapas were quite small portions. The entertainment was probably the best thing of the evening. Service not that great.

We stumbled on this restaurant a few years back and it's become our goto place when in Brighton. Authentic Spanish food at reasonable prices. Our favourite is a selection of tapas dishes and a large paella to share.

Food was quickly served. Service rather blunt. Food tasty. Reasonably priced. Best bit of the night was the Flamenco music and dance. Great atmosphere, lovely to see so many Spanish families in the restaurant. Will definitely go again when in Brighton

We visited here one Thursday early evening and although empty on arrival we were soon joined with other diners, including some Spanish so it felt as though we were actually on holiday! The restaurant itself is typically Spanish in its decor and we liked the...More
