  • Best crab stuffed mushrooms I ever had! And there stuffed seafood platter is to die for!
  • Weird that they only have one Spanish red wine and its by the glass.
  • Warm beer. (What little they had), makeshift appetizers (honestly potato chips and a little melted cheese and you call them nachos?) over all crappy place. Won't go back again.
  • The noise is rock concert worthy. Atrocious.
  • Great paella,freshly made !!
  • Get pulpo gallego, it's octopus cooked to tender perfection. It doesn't taste fishy so don't worry.
  • The lunch menu is excellent and very affordable
  • Get the Shrimp Fra Diavalo
  • Everything we had was delicious. The seafood stuffed red peppers were the best. When ordering a craft of sangria, know its a small pitcher.
  • Excellent paella, so-so service, but totally worth it nonetheless.
  • Go to El Olivo. Order the paella -- full of seafood, tender chicken, and some of the most flavorful sausage you can imagine. Eat til you explode, then take the other half home.
