Cafe Espanol Restaurant Review

: You can almost imagine Hemingway eating at this darkly lit Spanish restaurant, where the sangría flows along with the spicy seafood. Start with the refreshing gazpacho followed by the jumbo shrimp cocktail. There are several selections of paella, such as the paella Valenciana with sausage, chicken, seafood and rice. Lobster lovers will delight in the fra diavolo or a surf ‘n’ turf dish, but be sure to come on a Monday when the langosta prices are reduced.
