We returned recently to Selva and are glad we did. It's all about the food, and it was delicious. I had the paella and my wife the red snapper. There's a formal tone to the restaurant which, in my personal view, does not exude warmth....More

In a town that lacks eclectic world food options, selva is a godsend. It is amazing. The drinks are amazing. The ambience is amazing. We absolutely love going to this restaurant and have been going for many years.

We had a reservation but there was not a big crowd mid-week. I tried ceviche for the first time and it was crisp, fresh, spicy and tinged with lime. A little pricey but delicious as an appetizer. My entree was fall off the bone-tender pork...More
