Excellent paella!

We were told that this place offers a very good choice and quality of paella..they were right! We had a tarter, nothing special. Then the paella was great; tasty, well cooked and well served! On the downside, prices were higher than the average(but we have to be aware that the place is situated... read more

Charming restaurant with excellent food and service. We thought the paella was delicious and would certainly return. Our hotel recommended it and we were glad we went. Also gave us a chance to visit a different part of the city which was fun.

Encouraged by opinions from the internet we decided to visit such recommended place. After this visit I advise you not to go there. Expensive. Tragic service. A good paella, which you can find better, at lower cost, in a more climate-spot anywhere. Seriously. Spaniards are famous for paella. You can find it anywhere. So look at some tavern not necessarily... More

We decided to try this restaurant on our fourth day in Madrid. Thus far, most of our dining experiences had been limited to various tapa establishments, both because of the great value and also to immerse ourselves in the authentic Spanish experience. My husband and I shared a paella dish for two, with chicken, chorizos and veggies. The chorizos were... More

We had 4 Indian colleagues over in Madrid and I took them to this paella restaurant to taste something really local. They thought this was a safe choice since paella is rice which was their preferred food choice. The restaurant"s interior is nice, it gives a bit of a classic feel. Our waiter is a bit of a funny guy,... More

The food taste is good as we order "without salt" I believe Spanish food is more to salty taste where we unable to accept. So with those people that couldn't accept too salty pls tell the waitress "SIN SAL" Actually European food portion... More

I went here recently and I strongly recommend to not to come in this place. I'm Italian and Im used to eating good food. This restaurant was expensive and the paella was not good. Each person has to pay 19 euros for a ridiculous dish of paella with ONE shrimp and ONE clam. Moreover during the whole dinner the restaurant's... 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.
