This alluring mesón (tavern) exudes Old Spain with stained-glass windows and a roaring fireplace. Weekdays, classic dishes such as paella, spring lamb, suckling pig, and Cornish hens with truffles keep customers happy, but on Saturday night this place comes into its own with a four-course medieval banquet (starting at 9 pm), including a procession of costumed waiters carrying huge trays of steaming hot viands for $30 per person. Further entertainment is provided by a student vocal group dressed in medieval Spanish capes and hats, a juggler, and a magician. For dessert, a real winner is the turrón (Spanish nougat) ice cream.

We had a nice but very plentiful dinner there (quantities are huge!). A lot of atmosphere in this restaurant. One regret: the bill was not very accurate... Another attempt of over-charging their foreign customers ???

The Spanish decor and the GREAT seafood paella make this place a gem. Locals flock here which is the best recommendation of all.
