Great food, lovely staff. Fabulous restaurant for a party We had 8 people in ours and we all chose the "all you can eat" the food kept coming, until we said we'd had enough. You won't regret it

Save your money go some place else. Its not got even a hint of Spanish about it. Not even 1 person in the place is from even close to Spain. Try Leo,s just 5 mins away if you want a nice meal.
