Am considering meeting some friends here for dinner. Is their rotisserie chicken as good as they claim? How are the other menu items?

    This is one of the places I enjoy but only eat there if I'm using a discount coupon.
    Seating area is kind of "plasticky" but comfortable. Had the chicken twice. Once dry, once very good. I think I'll look far a coupon and go tonight!

      Went last night. Had the paella with chicken. About a 6 in a 1-10. Ate it but it was bland and no soffrito on bottom. Service started off great but like so many area restaurants I had to flag down a busboy to fined my waiter foe the check. What is it with this delivering the meal,asking how it is early on this never showing up again?

      It's been over a year since we've been there (ate there twice) but the chicken was very good. My wife enjoyed the fish as well.

        I've only been there once and it was a long time ago. There's a reason for that. Ordered one chicken and one fish. Got 2 chickens..... very dry chickens. In that area, there are so many other places to choose. I'd go somewhere else.

        A better idea, go there for apps and a drink (be certain to get Pa amb tomàquet and Gazpacho) and elsewhere for dinner.

          Agree with CocoaNut. The chickens were dry and the second one we cut into was a little too red on the inside. I'm sure we would have been fine eating it but we just didn't want to risk it by eating slightly raw chicken.

          The tapas were better but smaller than the usual tapas portions.
