Average, not great

The restaurant looks like a converted couple of living rooms, not super cosy but does the job. The house paella tasted good but mainly consisted of chicken and nondescript fish, rather than mussels, shrimp and prawns, which was rather disappointing. The food was overly salty as well.

Fortunately we had sangria to flush it down.

We were recommended to this restaurant one block off Gran Via when we expressed a desire for Paella while at a wine tasting. We were given the address and had been secured a reservation for 4 people about 9:15pm. The paella is priced per person, it did seem a bit expensive, but was quite good. Had the House Paella and...

My family and I had an excellent experience this evening. The service was prompt, and the meal was delicious. I had the vegetarian paella, and others at our table had the chicken paella. Both were terrific.

Had dinner here last night, 3/26/15. Chose this place based on mostly favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. Shared an over-priced seafood paella with my companions that was entirely mediocre, with service that was even more so. We all left feeling unsatisfied, ripped-off and disappointed with the choice of restaurant. Hopefully we'll do better this evening!

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

Staying in Chueca

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.
