“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We were in a group of people and went to this restaurant according to the friend's advice. We ordered a paella and sangria. Both service and food were very good. Would recommend this place to other visitors as well. The only problem: after this lunch we were thirstly all day long: probably the paella was too saulty.

“Divine Paella”

We had a Paella Valenciana at this restaurant; the Paella was just divine. The restaurant itself is pleasent, and we liked the very kind staff.

“Great paella”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

In Madrid with my wife and my hotel recommended this place. I was a bit weary since most hotels get kickbacks for sending tourists. However this place was amazing and reasonably priced. We shared the lobster and shrimp paella and it was huge and amazing. Very cute place that seemed like mostly locals went to. They may not have spoken English perfect but the food and their effort more than made up for it

“A rip off!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

Paella prices expensive. All meals per person, but dishes prepared for two, meaning average cost of dish 40 euros plus. Requested sangria, and told only 'grande' as wine list whisked away and so received a shock when 1.5 liters came for two people and cost of 18euros! Not possible to drink!
