I'm not giving this restaurant a 5 stars because the service was ok and the food was a little expensive, although on the picture it seemed a lot but it's not really enough for a couple, plus that I don't eat a lot but the paella was really good. It's a restaurant that you may go for a romantic date,... More

Can't say enough about this Paella House. The service was friendly and efficient. But the sangria and special seafood paella were out of this world. Will return!

This place was very close to our hotel so we thought we would try it. The decor is traditional, the paella was lovely and the value was great.

Excellent service, fantastic seafood paella for three, they explained it would take 20 minutes to make but we had a glimpse of someone else's meal and decided the portions looked large so decided to wait and enjoy the fabulous sangria while we waited. We weren't disappointed.. The largest red king prawns we'd ever experienced. The taste was amazing and we... More

Paella was delicious, but never over-estimate the portion sizes of Spain! My friends and I ordered two from the server's recommendation and were only able to eat one of the two; the server was very upset that we could not eat it and acted a bit rude. Everything was yummy, but one should not get upset at the customers that... More

Mediocre, that is the only thing you can say about this restaurant. Apparently they are well known for their paella, but the paella with lobster was not really tasty. Nor was the mixed salad. Felt like an overpriced tourist trap, noting more.

We went here based on the proximity to our hotel. We arrived as were told there would be a wait. Not a problem I don't mind waiting. We waited for about 5 minutes maybe less. We were seated in the back room by the kitchens. The owner/ manager came over to see if we had ordered but since we spoke... More

Went on recommendation. Had seafood paella which was ok. Expect to wait about 15-20min for paella to be served. Service was rather prompt. Overall bill came up to €50 for paella (2 persons), mixed veg salad and still water.

The staff were very helpful and nice, and the atmosphere is elegant. However, the food was just so-so. We got the chicken paella, and it tasted more like stir fry than paella. For the price, especially, there's better paella out there.

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
