As stated in title, the food was great as was the service. But just to expensive, I know it’s Miami Beach but a main meal and jug of sangria (it was huge mind) coming to $80 is Just to to much!

The toilet didn’t flush either which is why it smelt the way it did, would have just be tolerable if it worked.

Just to pricey for what it was, if we had appetiser in with the price then we would have just about felt ok paying that much! As for everywhere in the USA the 18%-20% Service charge is just rude

Hi! Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the food. We do make sure to attend any maintenance issues immediately when they happen, so we do have a working toilet! Our pricing is comparable to similar properties in the area and we feel we provide good value given our central location. We regret that this was not your impression and offer our apologies.

This place is simply amazing with great food and very friendly staff! I highly recommend the meat paella and the potato omelette!

This is a spanish restaurant in the center of Lincoln Mall. It has an indoor restaurant and a large outside area with a lot of umbrella covered tables. The variety of food is pretty good and they highlight their paella dishes. We were there for lunch and an appetizer of mixed empanadas and two flat bread orders was way too much for the two of us. The empanadads were very good (3 different kinds) and the flat bread dishes were enormous. I would say that 1 flatbread dish is enough for 2 to share. I had the Pollo Chicken, caramelized onion, tomato, manchego cheese, arugula and balsamic reduction. It was disappointing as the chicken was dry. It was, in our opinion, over priced for what you got. The empanadas were $11, the flatbreads $15 each. So the meal was over $50+tip.

Stopped for lunch on Cinco de Mayo .. Loads on menu but we chose something suitable to share .. There were quite a lot that would have been suitable.

We chose a vegetarian flatbread which was beautiful .. The bread was nice, light yet crispy and toppings perfectly proportioned.

We also had the nicest sangria in South Beach so far.

Being Cinco de Mayo, staff handed out mini sombreros to add to the festivities.

I wish I lived closer to this one,

Reasonably priced too.

This restaurant is over-rated and is a horrible place to dine in. I too share the recent negative reviews. Expect unacceptably long delays, overcooked paella, and staff offering extremely poor service with attitude. Comes at quite an expensive price and mandatory 18% service charge, plus tips.
