A smaller restaurant near the center of downtown. We found weekend parking on the street several blocks away. We ordered 4 tapas: sauteed squid, ox tail, mushrooms, and anchovies for the two of us. They arrived separately but in due time. That was just the...More

Disappointing paella, not even as flavorful and tasty as those we bought in various mercados in Madrid at 1/3 the price or less. Really pricey for what is offered at over $42 to $46 for two, but that is likely a product of being in...More

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.

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

We visited this restaurant before seeing a Broadway San Jose production. We arrived fairly early and were the only ones in the restaurant for a while. While we were greeted warmly, it was an odd feeling to be the only patrons. The sangria was delicious...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.
