The Tapas were good. We had Charcuterie and Octopus.
Paella was far from being the best I had. Wouldn't recommend it.

Great experience, would definitely return for another meal. Ordered paella and chicken mole, both of which were well made. The best part, however, was the tapas. Next time, I'll probably just order several of those. I would recommend the bacon-wrapped dates in particular; they were delicious.

I have not been to Joya for quite awhile. I have to say the food is not as good as it used to be. Sad. I really did like this place. I guess I will not be going back.

The food was great. We had the Paella ad it was really good. We also tried the red sangria, it was also really good. I can't wait until I go back.
