Great Paella at reasonable prices

Two nights ago my wife and I asked the front desk for a place close by that serves a good Paella-not one of the many bars that pretend to serve authentic food. Although she didn't know if this restaurant is good she recommended it as it is known for its fresh seafood. We tried it and are not sorry... read more

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Madrid. The fresh seafood (displayed at the entrance) is very appetizing and well prepared, the service of old fashioned excellence and the prices for food and wines reasonable. We love the Dover Sole and Sepia.

It is a old restaurant and not all waiters speak English. But the food is very good. If you go there, you must eat the "Paella com mariscos".

This is an old established restaurant near Plaza Major. Quiet, comfortable tables not packed together, white linen table clothes, discreet and efficient service, and the sea food was super fresh, very well cooked and presented, simply, but in the best classical tradition. The wine suggested by the head waiter (they do not have a "sommelier" because their staff are all... More

Very close to Casa Mayor and Arenal, very traditional old restaurant, limited English spoken, lovely local Spanish food, do try the prawns fro Huelva or the Seafood Paella, cost around 40 Euro for two courses with wine per person, nice atmosphere.

We have visited this restaurant over the decade and it gets better. We had Marques de Riscal reserva rioja to go with our food. The chiperones were excellent my wife said and the rape de la ria al ajillo was good but not of the same standard. The pulpa a la gallega was excellent - as it should be but... More

I visit this restaurant every time I am in Madrid. It is in the center of Madrid very close to plaza mayor. Dispite the information in the other reviews there are menus both in English and Spanish. But the Spanish menu has the special of the day. We had very nice fish soup (sopa mariscos) and crema de asparragos. One... More
