  • Best garlicky calamari anywhere - period!
  • Scallops with crispy bacon bits stole the show.
  • Ask Diego for the berry sangria ....its amazing
  • worst happy hour! ends at 6 on friday
  • Small plates are definitely small, but pack a punch full of flavor. The lamb chops were among my favorite!
  • Garlic shrimp and veal meatballs are great. Skip the churro--over fried and dry (though dark chocolate is very good)
  • Vino Tuesdays at El Porron is the best 25 % off any bottle of wine all day long.
  • Garlic shrimp ! Wonderful
  • Food is bland, come for the Porron and have fun with it!
  • Exelente Restaurant, delicioso el pulpo gallego
  • Best - queso manchego, vieras con tocino en salsa de esparragos, chorizos al vino de rioja Good - esparragos blancos, pulpo a la gallega, setas variadas, albondigas de ternera, paella valenciana
  • Pulpo, scallops, calamari, salmon, and chorizo were great!
  • Happy Hour
  • Try the Gazpacho Andaluz
  • Scallops and shrimp were great
  • Sangria and garlic shrimp
  • Calamari was finger licking good / dip the entire bread basket in the sauce. Same with the scallops. Will definitely be back ASAP
  • Good food. Great service. Get the coffee flan
  • Stick to the tapas and skip the paella.
  • I'd suggest the calamari!
