Nice restaurant, the owner is actually Spanish. The food is quite authentic; its not cheap but is good quality. The paella is huge, so beware of over-ordering!

We found this place after a friend recommended it to us. The food was very good, fairly different than mexican food. I would have to say this one was probably better. Well done

Came for lunch and sat in the pretty courtyard. Prague owner but Spanish chef. Excellent tapas and lovely wine to match. Owner and wife (from Guatemala) are very friendly and aim to please. Lovely after walking around the castle area. Thank you x

Was truly disappointed. Food ok , not memorable as far as the Spanish I've had before. Good central venue in the Old Town. Service by the waitress is very very slow. I wouldn't rush back but wouldn't run away either.
