My husband and I eat here every time we visit Orlando. The Paella is very good and seasoned to perfection. The restaurant is a little on the small side and tables tend to be very close.. (which is the only negative thing)...but if you want some yummy dinner by all means stop and get the PAELLA!

We have been in Orlando for two and half months. Hands down the best food in the city. Service A+! Truly can't wait to get home and try to cook the Grilled Octopus! The best I have ever had and I travel for five months every year!

We went to this place because of the food. It was really good, service was good, but the kitchen staff had a conversation that was so loud that's all you could hear while having dinner. It was a torture for everybody . That's all you could hear, for there's no music whatsoever. It could have been a nice dinner, if... More

We went to eat at Paella House in Orlando at the advice of my sister, who had eaten there during their last stay in Orlando last year. She and her husband lived in Torrejon, Spain for 4 years so they definitely know what good Spanish food is. As my wife and i travel to Spain once or twice a year... More

Went out in Friday night, got groupon to try it. Must say my first experience with seafood paella several years prior in Spain was not that great, so I was skeptical but eager to give it another try in USA. We had calamari, meat, seafood tapas and mixed ( seafood and meat) paella. I must say while I was not... More

Well here's another restaurant in the Orlando area trying to market to those who appreciate great quality options replicating what you would find in Spain. Close but not a hit. The soup (Caldo de Gallego) was pretty good. We ordered the Patatas Bravas since they are in my opinion a good test of authentic food from Spain. Not that good.... More

This restaurant has a great paella for a reasonable price. The portions are big; 3 people can eat a paella for 3. Recommend the mixed paella with seafood, chicken, pork and chorizo. For appetizer, we had the tortilla Espanola (omelet with potatoes) and it was tasty and the right moist. It's not a fancy place, but the food is good.

Went there based on TA reviews - I'm a huge fan of paella / tapas, and they definitely cover some of the key areas: croquettes, sangria, paella. Collective feedback from all four in my party - just average on the classics, but sangria was good. One in my party ordered the mahi mahi entree and indicated it was quite (and... More

Sometimes you can tell quality by the number of people entering or leaving at dinner time. We visited today after reading the good reviews. We sat out front in the parking lot for 10 minutes. No one left or entered. That should have been a clue! There was one other couple sitting in this place containing wooden tables. We stayed.... More
