The staff were very nice. The food was good, and the 40% discount made it good value for the setting and the quality of the food.

The only thing which wasn't good, was the fact, that we wanted the rest of our Paella for takeaway and they forgot to bring it. Nice atmosphere (man on the piano). Good food.

Excellent food with excellent service.
We made a last minute decision to have dinner at L'Albufera. It was nearly the closing hours of the restaurant when we reached. The staffs still greet us with a big welcome and served us with lovely smiles.

We ordered a wine, paella and grill squid. And the meal is complete with their recommended Lime Sorbet dessert.

Thank you for making our night with a memorable dinner.

Guaranteed paella place with traditional service and atmosphere.
Accustomed to deal with foreign guests, therefore they even have the way to cook for Asian guests! ´poca sal y arroz mas echo´

Overall a very memorable and enjoyable meal. The Paella del Seynoret was cooked to perfection, taste and quality of seafood and ingredients superior to most paella restaurants in Madrid. The Soufflé Grand Marnier was outstanding, very light.

Resturant decor is getting a bit tired. Could do with a make over.

Great food, although obviously best with at least 2 guests to share paella. There was a lot of food, and it was very kind of them to make it clear that we were welcome to ask to take it home.
Definitely recommend the food!
