Eclipse di Luna Park Place Restaurant Review

: Eclipse di Luna's Dunwoody location has a warm, dark interior and brighter seating in an enclosed patio-style space and on an open outdoor patio in good weather. Music every night ranges from Flamenco to Latin, and it doesn't impede table conversation. Dishes from Spanish and Latin American traditions compose the small plates. The few mains chiefly are paella, including black paella (squid ink) and vegetable versions; roasted fish and chicken are available, too. Authenticity is rare, but offerings remain firmly rooted in the spirit of this style of dining. Fried oysters riding a fine aïoli are crisp and pleasing. Garlic head-on shrimp are presented in a cast-iron cocotte that keeps the luscious sauce warm; get the bread to sop up every drop. Wines are not especially out of the ordinary, but the Verdejo handles all the seafood dishes. A selection of Spanish cheeses makes an apt meal-ender, and there is a competent flan. Decent coffee and a few dessert wines, including a sherry or two, add to the experience. Happy hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday brings half-priced tapas and well drinks.
