To the person who wrote before me, first of all you need to go to school to learn ENGLISH....whatever you wrote does not make any sense!! Are you translating from Spanish to English?? if you are, you need to be careful with grammar and punctuation because I can't understand what you're trying to say. Anyhow, who cares about Geography lessons (which is all I could understand from your comment), I just want to know if this club is good or not. !!!!

I love this restaurant, the food and the atmosphere. I'll be taking 11 friends with me to celebrate my birthday! It is a great party place. I once went to a great party with a fabulous buffet there and have always remembered that everyone raved about the paella. It was so much fun. This is a wonderful restaurant. If you don't try it, you are missing an evening to be transported to Spain and to relaxation.

To the idiot who wrote the other review-it is a SPANISH restaurant, not a mexican restaurant. Central America and Europe and two very different continents with two very different cuisines. Next time you blast something you should at least be informed of what you are critiquing. I am sure other brilliant diners such as yourself would be equally dissapointed in the ""authenticity"" of a Thai dinner if they thought that they were ordering Italian.

This was the worst dining experience I've had in the city. We were the ONLY people dining there at 9pm on a Thurs. night. Not only was the food not authentic Mexican, but it was terrible! The beans were uncooked, there was no cheese to be found on any of the dishes we ordered (including the enchaladas) and the meat was questionable. Starving, we wolfed down two aweful tapas, a terrible margarita and a corona (one of 2 mexican beers they have, served with a chunk of lime from which I literally couldn't squeeze a drop of juice). Luckily we convinced the waiter/bus (same guy, and only one) to take the pathetic enchaladas off the bill. He actually laughed with us when we pointed out what he tried to pass off as ""mexican food"". What a waste of valuable mission space!
