Amada suckling pig - Did I go on a off night?

We had the suckling pig when we visited on Memorial weekend and I was highly disappointed! Our party was larger than the pig we reserved (Half of the group were kids under 12). With a larger party, we figure great, we can try all the tapas too! We ordered some tapas including the Pernil Asado. The tapas were good but did find most of them on the salty side. After having the Pernil Asado (crispy skin and the tasty pork) we were looking forward to the suckling pig. The suckling pig came out on the carving table steaming and everyone was excited. They also brought out the Paella Valenciana we ordered and all the side dishes that came with the pig. The only side dish we felt was good/edible was the grilled green onions. The garbanzo beans had way too much white wine and salt which made it salty and sour. The white beans were still a little hard. The Paella Valencia was inedible! The chicken had a thick coating of seasoning that made it overly salty on the outside and it was DRY!! The rice also too salty and full of tomato. The suckling pig….the skin was awesome but the meat itself lacked flavor (not that I recall ever having bad crispy pig The pork was the only thing I tasted the whole night that could have used a dash of salt.

From all the reviews, I am wondering did I go on a off night or the pig is all hype?
