Has anyone been here recently? Thoughts?

Thank you in advance

  1. Well its just ok. The apptz and sangria are good. The entrees eh. The place is kindy shabby too, could use a spruce. Parking also can be a pain. Better food to be had @ Little Spain in Fords on NBrunswick Ave. Ate there last night. They changed the decor a bit, and have theme nights (Latin, Havana, etc) certain days, after 9. We went @ 6:30. Food last night was very good. Fresh salad and warm toasty bread. Flounder costa brava sauce excellent. Sangria good but they changed the size to Small Med & Large. MED is pretty large...around 8 glasses. Great lunch specials too.

    1. I have not been there in years. The place was horrible. I remember people gorging over those crazy plate size portions of rice! Gross! Veggies were drenched in oil and butter, and whatever I eat, I think may have been lobster tails, so overcooked. I have no desire to return, as I continually hear bad things about the place.

      This is just my opinion. I won't go back.

      1. thank you both! It doesn't sound like a place to go. we may check out Little Spain

          Hi, We've always had a decent meal at P.M. and good service. We've been going for a few years now. The last time we were at Little Spain which was about a year ago, my food was cool and my husband's so so. Convince me to go there again. I'd like to and I have a coupon.

        2. Try Costa Brava on Rt 9, south in Sayreville.
