The food is great, defiantly the best paella. Service super good as well and although the ambiance us nice it does need a bit if updating that would be my only criticism.

The seafood paella was great! We also got the salmorejo as an appetizer, and it was wonderful.

The food was very good. Just in case you have a discount when you book, be aware that's won't be for the drinks.

The restaurant was empty anf full of rounded tables for 5+ people. Despite of that, I have been given a retangular table for 4 at a corner where employees get the bread, among others. I asked the maitre for 1 of the nice round tables and heard that the restaurant was fully booked. I had to show great dissatisfaction when I was about to leave the place when the maitre offered one of the round tables. Till the moment we left, the restaurant remained with no more than 40% occupancy.
A second issue was that we were informed that each Paella dish served 2. That was clearly not true! Each could serve easily 4 people. We ended up eating too much and leaving 40% of the food. Perception was that the 40% discount impacted severely the service!

We went for the paella rating and it was good. The service was cold & sterile by a waiter who should retire rather than be a grumpy old man. The location is a bizarre basement building of the Melia hotel. Not for a date this place.
