Their paella negra was fantastic!!! The owner was super nice. He suggested to only do 2 tapas since we were getting a Paella. He gave us a free plate of lengua too, which melts in your mouth. We will definitely come back again.

We had tickets to a show at the Improv and it's 2 blocks from there, and I've always wanted to try this restaurant. If you like garlic, this is the place for you! Order the tortilla espagnola, which has a pungent garlic mayonnaise on the...More

Not only do they serve Paella but they have a selection of Tapas to also choose from. It's a nice place to go with a group and order a variety trying a little of everything.

Went there with another family. No reservations, but it was pretty open on a Saturday evening. We were quick to get seats. About 5 vegetarian options, but none of the dishes were memorable. Would probably go to other places for Tapas in Mountain View or...More

Severs are warm, atmosphere not elegant, but has an average paella. Comercial, but ok. Oxtail is also a god option and tastes fine... It's not an excellent Spanish cuisine, but allows you to enjoy a paella in San Jose.

I went to try Picassos Restaurant. The food was ok to good, but the service was a bit lacking. We ordered a Paella for two, and we ended up being hungry afterwards. I think they were a little tight on the food. Their portions need...More

I've been looking for a good tapas restaurant and I am shocked I didn't come across this restuarant sooner. In this location for 18 years and a 20yr veteran of downtown San Jose, you don't find establishments like this often. Unapologetically themselves with a true...More
