We booked for a 12.30 lunch but were almost 1/2 too early - no problem at all. Starters were excellent - Garlic mushrooms and Gambas - and the paella was just fabulous. Very friendly service and this despite a large group of schoolchildren (between 40 and 50!) who were obviously experiencing a Spanish meal. The children were very well behaved too and seemed to enjoy their food - best of all though was the appreciative sound effects when churros were served! Well done to the trio @ La Paella and another 'thumbs up' goes to the schoolchildren and their teachers who were probably on their end of term treat.

La Paella is my favourite Spanish restaurant in London. The tapas are varied, plenty of vegetarian options. It has a great vibe and the owner and staff are friendly, attentive, and helpful.

The service was pretty good, and they are very friendly. I didn't rate 6 because we realized after we left the restaurant that we didn't get all dishes we ordered. I am not sure if they didn't take note for this order (Calabacin Fritas) when we order at first or they forgot to bring it. I don't even know if this order was included the last price or not but we satisfied this restaurant anyway. I recommend this restaurant!

Amazing food, fast service and friendly staff. Couldn't fault it in any way. Had 6 tapas between 2 people, probably enough for most people but got a paella as well. Finished it all and it was a little bit of a struggle. Glass of wine each. £35 per head

Been visiting for 20 years to this family run business and as vegetarians there is loads for us to eat, it's always served up hot and fresh. Very busy on Saturdays and much quieter during the week when sometimes the service is too quick. This is ok if you want to eat and run!

Lovely food very lively and busy Turning people away in Saturday night so make sure to book. Service very good prompt and hardly any waiting time spot on ! Even in a full restaurant. Not ideal for a quiet romantic meal.maybe better to have a week night for that.would definitely go back.

THE best Spanish food outside of Spain!!! We had a couple of tapas dishes to start & a mixed paella as a main - generous portions, loads of flavour & a great wine recommendation! I'd go every night if I could! Simply delicious!

Authentic Spanish food in a restaurant where the staff and atmosphere make you feel very welcome. Highly recommended. We drove 16 miles to get there but was worth it for the real Spain feel :)

food was lovely, really traditionally spanish. Service could be improved on though. Didn't like the way we had our wine glasses topped up to the brim for us and then asked if we wanted another bottle, despite not having even sipped the glasses that we had!

Great food. We had paella, which was excellent. The churros was also very nicely. Although we were not in a hurry, the wait for the main course was a bit longer than ideal.

Nice atmosphere. Portions slightly on the small side and a bit pricey. Had better Paella to. Ordered the one with chicken and chorizo and there was literally about 3 slices of chorizo in it.

Some prices were reasonable on items on the menu, but some items were too dear. The food itself generally was quite basic, portions on some items were disappointing - Calamari. The chairs were very uncomfortable.

Over all it was very good experience, the food was good. It had an authentic menu, a traditional tapas restaurant, however relatively expensive for the location.
