Casa de Valencia makes the best Paella in Madrid!

Take my word and don't spend even a minute thinking. When you plane lands in Madrid, call Casa de Valencia and book a table to savour the best paella ever. As a family and specially my husband who has been in Madrid many times to watch his favorite local soccer team, we have never tasted a better paella elsewhere.

We arrived in the restaurant a party of five friends, a Sunday noon and it was packed with local Spanish families who where enjoying paella and many different seafood plates. Seafood in this restaurant is very popular and no wonder as everything we tried was fresh and reasonably priced in my opinion. 

We had Fish and Seafood Croquettes, tasty, soft and moist inside, crunchy outside just perfect, we liked it so much we ordered two portions. The main course was a Seafood Paella for five people. As I said before,  excellent plate full of flavor with top quality ingredients and full of fresh seafood. We were not equally excited with the desserts we had a tiramisou and a chocolate dessert which I don't recall its name but we did not mind as the food was excellent. I appreciate the fact that they bring you also at the end a huge plate with sweet muscat wine and dry fruit free of charge. The service was efficient and speedy, but also precise and attentive with an old fashioned look just like the restaurant itself. 

Classy and old fashion Casa de Valencia, retains a formal elegance that many good restaurants in Madrid still hold. This is the main reason I love restaurants in Madrid, because you have the feeling they respect you as a client, either you pay a lot of money or not. Casa de Valencia I salute you!
