Paella is great, better than the other ones we tried in Spain. A friend has recommended the place. It's a bit pricey though, nice ambiance. Ana, our server spoke English and was helpful with our orders. Location is easily accessible.

The place is beutifull, Service attentive. Better than eating an awfull and overcocked paella in every restaurant in Madrid center This is your place. Non expensive and relaxing.

Alone in the restaurant. I would expect a crowded place, but... The place is very nice and clean. Service also very nice. The paella was good, that's it.

A dinner for 8 guests had been pre-booked and we arrived on time. Three different paella were ordered and all were poorly composed. The Chicken and vegetable was decorated with a single chicken drumstick! The classic seafood contained shrimp that had no fish inside, all shell and no fish! The Black rice again was poorly 'filled' with non rice ingredients.... More

We weren't surprised that when we asked the front desk at the hotel for a place to get Paella in Madrid that they recommended a place called La Paella- and one that they just 'happened' to have coupons for. However, for the price we paid we were fully satisfied with our meal, including churizo, sangria, and of course Paella

We ordered paella for dinner. it was horrible, paella was burnt. Moreover, staff was unkind and rude. They didn't even say hello or thanks. In addition, the dinner was very expensive. Keep away from this restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. The food was okay, but very over priced! I'm sure you can find cheaper and better tasting somewhere else. We has the seafood and chicken paella. I wish they wouldn't dish it out for you. They should just set the paella tray in the middle of the table. When we entered... More

This review is long overdue - I thought that I had already written one but it turns out that I did not. My wife and I had dinner here one evening back in Oct. 2011 while we were vacationing in Madrid. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel where we were staying which was a short distance from the restaurant.... More
