Sevilla in Orlando, great place for real Spanish food

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... read more

One of the too few small ma & pa place in Orlando where food is simple and good... My wife and I had lunch over there we order a vegetarian paella take 25 to 30 min ( has mention in the menu) to be ready so if you are in hurry call ahead. Worth the wait great and fresh cook... 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

I can't understand all the glowing reviews. It was OK but it was far from five star. We had the house special cold tapa. Presentation was basic, the olives were pimento stuffed from a jar, supermarket quality, also the meats and cheese could have been bought in Publix down the road. The paella mixta again was OK but the ingredients... More

The Paella was great and a huge serving that with leftovers taken home produce another two meals. The service was great as well. This was our second visit and they honored a Groupon with no hesitation or snarling.

We had seven adults enjoy dinner at Paella House on John Young Parkway in Orlando. It is easy to drive to as it is only about a half mile north of the interchange with the Greenway, the east west expressway in south Orlando that goes south of the airport. We made reservations for a Wednesday and they had a large... More
