  1. Spain Restaurant on Glendale. I haven't eaten there so can't vouch for the food. According to previous reviews here, the paella is disappointing.

      Spain Restaurant (not too creative with their name) is actually on Glendale Blvd. in Echo Park. Right next to the 2 freeway. It really looks like a dump on the outside -- and their internet site didn't make things look any more attractive. I am curious if anyone had eaten there -- and if any good.

        Many Chowhounds have eaten there, with mixed views. Try searching back as far as the Board can be searched; they've been at that location a decade or more! It is inexpensive and unpretentious; there are those who'd describe it as a "hole in the wall". I like it for what it is, an acceptable neighborhood place.

    2. Cobras & Matadors, Silver Lake isn't bad. Some serving problems but the food can be good to excellent. This is a list of Spanish Restaurants in the Valley from the LA Times:

      1. The closest candidate to you is probably Las Palmas in North Hollywood. Most of the other Spanish restaurants should show up on the CH LA Spanish map:
        Rincon Espanol in San Pedro gets pretty good reviews here, but it may not be close enough for you :-).

        Rincon Espanol
        79 Berth, San Pedro, CA 90731

        Las Palmas
        5752 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91601

        1. Hardly the valley, but for small plates there is Tasca on 3rd. I much prefer them to C&M. The Courtyard in WeHo is okay too.

          1. Yes, Tasca at 8108 W. Third Street is currently my favorite for Spanish tapas.
