This restaurant had been recommended but when we got there and read the menu, we did not see that the price for a single paella is double what it says on the menu, because the price is based on 2 people.(So why don't they just give the full price?) Even the bread and olives were charged. When we complained to... More

My husband and I really wanted to try authentic paella we were recommended by the hotel we were staying with, (although they were going on a recommendation by a previous guest) I booked a table for 21.30 as most of madrid eats quite later so thought there would be a good mix of customers we arrived a little early and...

Four of us went to La Paella Real, which is hidden in the recesses of a building among other Spanish restaurants. We ordered a jar of sangria, gambas al ajillo, a salad, and two servings of the seafood paella. First of all, we really, REALLY recommend the sangria, which was, according to two natives, the best they had ever tasted.... More

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.

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
