Just thought I'd pass this on. Finally their own website. I went again this past Saturday and sat downstairs this time with some family and two kids--age 7 and 1--good restaurant kids. Downstairs definitely has more atmosphere than up, although up is fine too. The owner (one of the guatemalen brothers) was so nice. And the service was top-notch compared to the last time we were there where timing of service was a little fast. So attentive. They made you feel so completely welcome and, although no specific kid menu, made cheese quesadilla for my older son and a beautifully grilled chicken breast and gorgeous veggies for my toddler--just as nicely presented as the grown-up food. OMG, the food is still so delicious. I have to find the time to download the picture I took of my paella from my last visit. My mom and sister had the oyster appetizer over mofungo that they enjoyed. My niece and I both had the incredible beet salad (second time for me) that is the best I have ever had and presented beautifully. My mom had the ribs that she loved and said fell off the bone (sorry to all you Q lovers who hate that), my sister and I both had regular paella (I had to get it again); so flavorful and nice that it is made for one. My other sister had tilapia that she said was great and my niece had whole red snapper--funny thing here was that the server asked her if she wanted it with or without the head. She said without (chicken). We were all teasing her to leave it on so the kids could get a kick out of it. When it came, the kitchen forgot to cut it off. The waitress felt bad and wanted to take it right back; we just kept it, so we all had a fun time looking at it staring at my son! There is somethign about this place. They just make you feel so at home and welcome and the food, well, I cannot say enough that hasn't already been said by so many other's on here. So glad they took over the whole place and dropped the Martini from their name and cleaned up the downstairs. Prices are great. Food is better. We were there by 6:30 and by 7:00, the place was packed solid.

Here's the new site; a feast for your eyes:
