I would expect a Spanish Tapas restaurant to make a decent paella...alas their paella was quite disappointing. Not a hint of sofrito and saffron seemed to be missing in action. There were 4 prawns and 3 small chunks of chicken, and some sausage that was not chorizo. The waitress did tell us that they removed chorizo from the menu, however. (Funny, you can buy chorizo at ShopRite in Westgate Mall.) Overall, pretty pathetic paella and the portion was definitely not enough for two hungry adults.
The Margarita Classico, besides being very, very small (go to Mercado for adult-sized Margaritas) was not well balanced and not very tasty.
Been here mostly for cocktails and these are good- the mojito is the go-to drink here and they have different versions of it. The tapas selection is good- the lamb meatballs and the octopus are favourites. The decor and theme are nice- casual but above average. The service was good and friendly but they falter with recommendations.
The ambience is very hospitable....can add a sparkle to your day
Went for #NRW2017 here and I loved it! Especially the peruvian style raw fish starter plus the Kikuyu in me definitely would go back for the patatas bravas.:-) On the downside however,they didn't have the complimentary cocktail.
My friend and I had an amazing experience. The food was so flavourful, the ambience was perfect and the drinks were great! The bathrooms are too far though!
