Local friends took us to Samm. Perfect location for young children for there is an adjacent playground. Paella with seafood was excellent, paella with meat very good. Served on a very large pan shared among all. So called Russian salad as appetizer is good also. The restaurant is far from touristic attractions but very well known by locals (packed for... More

Very good Paella, to be able to have the Paella with rabbit and chicken (valenciana) you have to be at least 4 and order in advance, due to that they prepare in the old fashion way. A place for rice

This restaurant was a very sad disappointment. Perhaps others are also coming round to this view as the restaurant (plastic covered eating area, plastic chairs etc) was practically empty. Your impression on entering is that prices must be reasonable in such a locality. However, you are not offered a menu and there is no way of knowing that you will... More

I was very disappointed by this resturant. They serve Spanish paella and it is not bad but the price is exhorbinant. They "burn" the paella a little to make the rice crunchy and a lot of people like that. I was also dispapointed how they "recommend" a plate of shrimp to start with but dont give you the price. Once... More

My husband had already dined at Samm on a previous trip and could not wait to take me there when returned. It was so amazing! We started off with calamari,delicious! And then the paella arrived...Mouthwatering, delicious, I can still taste it! I will definitely be back if and when we return to Madrid!

Undoubtedly the best place to eat rice in paella in Madrid (and probably one of the top 5 in Spain). Surprisingly enough, it is very very difficult to get a well prepared rice in paella. Maybe a couple or three places around Valencia and Alicante, Samm in Madrid, and.., that is all.
