Opened on the site of a warehouse that was frequented by Spanish sailors in colonial times, this little hideaway serves such creditable Spanish specialties as tortilla de patata (potato omelet) and gambas al ajillo (shrimp sautéed in garlic). The flamenco performances (nightly at 9) provide a bracing shot of atmosphere, although the Café Taberna just a couple hundred meters on tends to attract the crowds these days.

This restaurant made our trip. Great service, Spanish entertainment incl Flamenco, wonderful food. Spotless! We had a wide variety of Spanish and Seafood, and loved every bit. They even made a vegetarian paella for one of our party. Drunken lobster was superb, as were the many Spanish tapa type items. Prices fair.
