“As past users have indicated, the decor is nothing to look at, but the food is excellent.”
“..... we always order the Filet Migon Malaga and the Shrimp alla Chef (around 30 shrimp) and the strawberry cheese cake.”
“while the decor is probably the same as it was back in the 70's, the food is great.”
“It turned out, however, that the food is good, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is fun.”
“OK, so the place isn't the nicest, but the service is outstanding, the food delicious and the prices can't be beat.”
a real find.
my parents would take me here as a kid, since they lived around the corner when it first opened and they always enjoyed it...
i was surprised recently to learn that it was still around. while the decor is probably the same as it was back in the 70's, the food is great. the chicken vie la roi is incredible. the kind of food you wake up craving in the middle of the night. the sangria is excellent.
Try the Sangria!. Although the decor is right out of 1973, this restaurant is not to be missed. It has an varried and interesting menu with many choices. The wine list is easy-to-follow (try the sangria). The soups, including the black bean and the sopa de mariscos were delicious (and they're not cheap with the seafood). The prices are what you'd expect in NYC.
Excellent!. OK, so the place isn't the nicest, but the service is outstanding, the food delicious and the prices can't be beat. It was recommended to me by a co-worker who frequented it years ago. From her description it hasn't changed and is still fantastic. It's an Upper East Side find that I would gladly go to again and again.
Better than what I've read.
I went with a group of friends last night, and I was nervous based on what I'd read. It turned out, however, that the food is good, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is fun. Of course it's a dump, have you ever seen a beautiful Spanish restaurant? We lingered over tapas and sangria for about two hours, and all the items we tried were tasty (the octopus was a bit mushy). Entrees were well prepared, also- I particularly recommend the lobster creole al diablo. The only entree I tried I did not enjoy was the veal in almond sauce. The sauce was too sweet; it reminded me of duck sauce. Didn' t have dessert.
I say go with a large group, don't expect 5-Star cuisine, and you'll have a good time.
