We went to the restaurant with my father ,to pick up a paella order for 4 people(we called like 30 min. before), the service was great even though we just sat and waited a couple of minutes. The environment seems comfy and nice. The price was less then 20 dollars (110.000 guaranies) for two persons.

The restaurant is beautiful and has a fantastic terrace with balinese beds. But the food is not as good, considering the price. One of the most expensive places in Asunción serving seafood and fish, in a place with no sea, thus the product is not as good or diverse.
The only dish worth trying is the crepes with dulce de leche. Really nice. The rest of the menu can be ignored

I will start by saying this is the best restaurant I tried in Asuncion, Paraguay. However, I do have concerns for my fellow travelers and tourists that will be staying in downtown Asuncion. This restaurant is located 30 minutes away from downtown and most taxi drivers as I found out had no clue where it is located they had to ask around. So would advise for travelers to carry the card of restaurant with them when taking a taxi because the card a has a map on it. Now, let's get to the restaurant itself. I was greeted at the door, so I knew instantly this would be a good experience. They served complimentary fresh bread and I ordered sangria. I also order the paella. The Sangria came as a pitcher(jarra grande) and the paella (with prawns and calamari) came in a nice pan so this was dinner for two actually served to one person. The owner/manager came around to every table including mines to greet patrons. The sangria was poured as needed and the paella was served as needed, so the service is definitely 5-star. I have no complaints and I highly recommend my fellow travelers and tourists to try possibly the BEST restaurant in Asuncion, Paraguay. Happy Travels!!!!

This seems to be THE place in Asuncion to have a real Spanish paella and that's what we went for. And Paella we had. It's not the real thing, the rice is not the right one and the seafood was frozen (but hey, what would you expect in this landlocked country?) but the final product was not bad at all and I had two servings. The decor is nice and creative and the service excellent.
