Good!

Nice time to have lunch at the table without tapas or fast food Spanish kinds. Nice place, nothing really special. Good food and nice price. We appreciated!

We ate here a few years ago, and returned again for another incredibly delicious meal. The restaurant is small and cozy. Our server last night was incredibly friendly and helpful. My mouth is watering just thinking about the Paella Valencia...

I am sorry but the paella was not good at all and it is very expensive. I think that it is overrated, I made the mistake to go because of the positive comments but the rice was very hard and it cost TOO MUCH-My advice: choose a different location, it can't go worse!

Hotel we stayed at recommended this place. Food was good and freshly prepared but watch out for the prices. Most items are for a minimum of two people but the price is per person. Not do good if you go as a couple and want different paellas.

I came twice to this restaurant during my two last visits of Madrid. They offer a wide list of paellas (with seafood, variuos meet, vegetarian...) as well as other meals and desserts. The service is good enough. In may it was completely full of tourists. If you are first time in Spain bear in mind that restaurants normally serve meals... More

We found this restaurant near our hotel, when we wanted a meal at 7:30 pm and a lot of the nearby ones did not start serving food until 8pm. When we arrived only one other table was occupied There were four of us and most of the Paellas serve a minimum of two people . One friend definitely did not... More

Got recommend to this restaurant from out hotel. Was expecting authentic paella and was disappointed to be served an overly salty rice dish. Not worth the price. Included cheap seafood and extremely poor service.

Very nice spot, family owned apparently, great service. I definetely reccomend "pulpo a la gallega" it was just perfectly cooked. And the paella de valencia was also excellent. The food superb, the place nice and cozy, the service great. +++

The food was excellent, the service good and the cost acceptable, the menu had a number of different paella and rice dishes covering all tastes including vegetarian. We went with the house paella and were completely satisfied. Well recommended

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.

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.
