The food was DELICIOUS we even had enough to bring some home for the lunch the next day..we are not drinkers however the Sangria was delicious as well so the small pitcher was more than enough for my husband and I and we opted and got the strongest. we are looking to go back again. The Groupon deal didn't cover the taxes or gratuity, we ordered a salad which was $6, so all in all we only paid $20 more out of pocket well worth it.

The restaurant environment is great and the waitress is very friendly. We got there about 5pm Saturday and there is not many people in the restaurant. We simply ordered Valenciana Paella for 4 people exactly covered by the Groupon. The seafood ingredients are very good but it is unfortunate the dish is just too salty! We don't know if it is some mistake or this is normal. We didn't tell the waitress though she did keep asking how is the dish. My reco is to tell the wait/waitress not to put too much salt just to sure when you go there to order Paella. The sangria is great and we like it very much. Overall it is good experience!

Good, authentic food. Great service! Sangria was very good. The only thing is that in the Groupon they advertise the sangria as a $22 credit, which is s large pitcher but when u get there, they only give u a small one(about 3-4 glasses) a $12 credit. It is very hard to almost impossible to find parking around the restaurant. My wife and I had to walk three blocks through Newark after we parked

We had the Groupon for 4 paellas and sangria. They told us we had to get the same paella which we didn't like. Server seemed a bit short with us.

The Sangria was good( we had the white) but the Paella (Valenciana) was watery and the seafood was overcooked. Sausage tasted as if it was spoiling before they cooked it. However I will say the atmosphere in the place was phenomenal and the bread was fresh and we even doubled up on the bread.
