I was dissapointed. This place recieved good reviews so I expected a nice dinner. They have a large selection of paella, but our choice lacked flavour and freshness. Combine that with a crancky waitress and you have the ingredients for a dinner to forget.

This is a very classic restaurant. Paella is a must. Prices are ok. Not very crowded, service good. If you want to eat an amazing paella in a traditional restaurant, definitely this is the place to go!

Truly the best Paella Restaurant in Madrid. We were glad we listened our concierge Sonia (Torre de Madrid), she was absolutely right about this great restaurant. We had Paella con Mariscos and croquetas (appetizer ), both were fantastic. I definitely will return to La Barraca...More

We were told that La Barraca had some of the best paella in Madrid given that it was a Valencian restaurant. The food lived up to the recommendations and the setting, wine and staff were all spot on

Enjoyed a pleasant dinner with friends. Were there 2 couples for a birthday. Advised to go there for paellas and it was worth it. Service is professional and classic. Definitely you pay higher prices because this is a very touristic area, and highly recommended restaurant.

I don't know but they have a website with the menu on it. Can you eat rice? They specialize in Paella. That's what you go there for.
