Walked in circles to find this place. Tables right on the street separated by thin plastic wall. Started with delicious freshly sliced tomatoes with olive oil and oregano and plate of sliced manchego cheese and jamón serrano. Disappointed in paella de mariscos. Tasted bland compared...More

Located in the Latin Quarter, La Traviesa filled our need for paella and red wine. Our waiter was kind and helpful, the lighting a bit bright, but friendly, and dinner was comforting. We also enjoyed chatting with the locals around the bar.
