As the name of this restaurant suggests, it is the Queen of Paellas. During our vacation in Spain, we have to taste their paellas. This was recommended by our hotel and yes! their paellas are the best in town!!!

We walked in without reservation, and were asked to wait for fifteen minutes. And we didn't have to spend more time waiting. The paella was delicious, and they had Esmeralda wine, which is great with seefood paellas. It's not a cheap place, but it is cozy and comfortable, and the food is fresh and tasty.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as it is very close to our hotel. Totally enjoyed the food. Although we have not had many Paellas before I have to say this is the best I've had. We ordered the Seafood Paella which we demolished completely. I was a little hesitant at first after reading some reviews but I'm glad we went... More

Our hotel recommended this place of two for a good Paella. They were fully booked but if you go early when they open you most likely will get a table as it looks like they have walk in tables available. We had the Seafood Paella which was OK could have done with a bit more flavour though - said that... More

Even though they have a lovely lady waiting on the tables, the Paella needs a lot of work as well as the atmosphere. My expectations were really high based on some reviews and personal recommendations; however, my experience was extremely disappointing.

Hidden gem. Located behind the Gran Via and recommended by a local this restaurant was just perfect. The place is very small and cozy, the service was superb and the paella the best you can have in Madrid. A must visit every time I pass through Madrid.

The first time I ate there I was living in Madrid and was invited by a local. This was 1992. During my two year stay I went repeatedly with friends and relations and was never disappointed. Over the years, every time I visit Madrid I go back to have one of the best paellas in town. Last time was a... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
