Having read your review of the Prado and the review by the Phoenix Magazine whch were totally opposite we decided to try Prado and make our own determination. The evening couldn't have been more perfect. We sat on the patio overlooking the fountains. The service was excellent. Besides the maitre d', and our waiter there were two bus boys in attendance. We started with a salad and grilled shrimp. The salad was very good but the shrimp were outstanding. They were grilled with the right amount of charring and seasoned beautifully. Next we had the seafood Paella. The rice was not watery but perfect. The fish was tender and well seasoned. The Paella came in a cooking dish that was set next to us on a table. Our waiter served us our portions. For desert we had the hazelnut torte which was a creative delight. It had many layers one of which was an unusual rice pudding, one a hazelnut mousse and one a chocolate mousse. The coffee was excellent and the silver pot was left on our table and the wait staff refilled my companions cup. They had a nice variety of decaf teas which is unusual and I was delighted with my choice. Its hard for me to understand the awful review that the New Times gave to this delightful and elegant restaurant. We are glad that we went.
