I rated St. James at 5 for the excellent quality of their food, and their service. The atmosphere it not what I would typically like. But this time I just rate food & service quality. It's not cheap, but I guess the pest Paella I ever had in my life.

A fine Paella and Arroceria in a very high end área of the city. One of the good Arrocerias in town. I recommend the "Arroz con Bogavante" (Catabric Sea Loaster) St. james has a Beautiful smoking terraza área in which you can also dine or have lunch. Service is great, and the restaurant very well kept.

It was truly fine dining with lots of linen embroidered with their name & exceptional attention/service. Although their famous paella was supposed to be for minimum of 2 people, we knew from e-mailing with them that the broth had garlic and my husband couldn’t have it due to a severe allergy to garlic - so they graciously offered to make...

Service was friendly and attentive until it started to get busier around 10pm, at which point we tourists were given a back seat. Seafood paella was good, but not overly generous with actual seafood. Be advised that smoking is permitted in this restaurant, and the resulting smoke / odor is not confined to one area of the restaurant.

Had very good food, but felt taken advantage of by the waiter. We were sharing appetizers and picked a 19 euro choice. The waiter told us that he didn't think there were any left and suggested we order the langostino instead. He placed an order which came out to 84 euros for just one appetizer. He was not upfront when... More

Very warm and efficient service, very good seafood, the Paella is a must-have. Slightly more pricey than Tapas restaurants - but this is a better quality resto for a sit-down meal. Loved it!

12 bucks for 4 small rolls of normal starter bread; sprung on to the tab at the end of a couple of hundred buck meal. Had better Paella in NYC. Way overpriced and only two tables occupied the entire evening. Yes, its summer in Madrid; every other place has patrons in it! Skip this one for sure.

The paella was really good, but not worth the price. We went on a Saturday night at 10pm and it was practically empty which says it all.
