I have eaten there quite a few times. Had my birthday at Cafe Espanol last year - it was cozy, food was great. Octopus and shrimp were delicious. Staff was gracious and very attentive. You can enjoy a nice quite and flavorful meal there.

They've blinked, after so many good years. The paella now comes in one platter, with no extra pot. And the rice was severely undercooked.

Very good paella and pork extremena. Service is attentive without being overbearing. Sangria pitcher w/killer sangria and 6 huge glasses for $22. You'll get the check and not believe the amount & quality of food for the price. Not your typical loud NYC place either. Very cozy & romantic atmosphere, without being stuffy or outdated. That's why it's been around for over 20 years!

there were 5 of us - 5 different entrees - and most were mediocre at best. the service was ok - they kept trying to move us along. granted, we weren't drinking, but the place was not crowded. maybe the sister restaurant on bleecker is better?

Had red sangria, very delicious. Came with free tapa. Free salad too. Seemed like homemade Catalina dressing. Could taste spices of either thyme or marjoram. Chicken Espanol special was very delicious. Surrounded by slight caramel bachemel sauce and stuffed with white cheese. Green beans were good too. Flan had homemade whipped cream with a real mint leaf, was not overly sugary. Service was excellent.

I really enjoyed my visit to this restaurant. The live music was beautiful. The atmosphere is shabby chic. The service was fantastic. We ordered the lobster specials. The sauce for the shrimp and lobster was so tasty I could have kissed the chef. However, don't order a version pina colada. The price you pay is practically the price for a real one.

This experience was the perfect way to finish off our annual family gathering! greeted warmly and seated right away (party of 9). large portions perfect for sharing and great value for the money. basic decor added to an authentic feeling. polite and pleasant wait staff, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere made for a fun dining experience. parking was no problem...but then we were in a stretch limo! We would DEFINITELY go back! (next time we want to get the lobster...which looked delicious!)
