In business since 1982, Cafe Espanol was bought in 2005 by brothers Pablo and Ignacio Manso, first-generation Spanish-Americans who grew up in Jackson Heights. Their menu features tapas, paella, parrillada (seafood plate), veal cutlets and a wide selection of Spanish wines. Local diners love their homemade sangria, and tapas fillings. Including chorizo, shrimp and octopus. The interior decor features generic stucco walls and paintings of fan-brandishing Spanish women. The atmosphere reaches for more of a cozy than chic feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! We ordered the cured salami (6 thin slices for $8 is too much) to start, the seafood mirella paella (excellent, super fresh seafood, large portions, thorough flavor) & 1 other dish. Service was top notch even though there were only 2 other tables there Tuesday night. The atmosphere from music to interior design to ambiance were all very good. Bar area is lively with warm discussions between patrons new & old. Overall, excellent. Very easy-to-find location on Carmine. Jun 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ordered the paella which was very good especially the seafood and the rice. The chicken was a little dry and bread hard.The appetiser also was good.There is only a fan and no air conditioner so it was a hot inside. Jun 7, 2014
