We came here as recommended by our hotel on Gran Via and ALL the Tripadvisor great reviews. We asked the manager what did she recommend, we went with the "shelled" paella ... on her recommendation. It was basically rice with a handful of shellfish at €22 per person. I'm sorry but it was average and the manager was not forthcoming... More

This place was mentioned to us during one of our walking tours and since we were in the mood for Paella, we gave it a try. The restaurant is located down a quiet side street and when we arrived around 2:30 in the afternoon, it was busy and most of the tables were occupied by locals in business dress. At... More

We went here as a special treat on our last night and were not disappointed. If you want a first class plate of Paella, in a very smart and civilised restaurant with lovely staff and very efficient service then then La Barraca is perfect - it is a s simple as that!

We had such a wonderful time in this restaurant! Paella is quite cheap and extremely good: I chose the reina de mariscos and was rich and tasty, but mixta and valenciana (chosen by some of my friends) were great, too. And you have to try their sangria! We were a group of ten girls and really appreciated the kindness and... More

It’s an elegant restaurant with classical food service. They are famous by their savory paella dishes. We had try tripe stew as well and it was delicious. (and taste-wise very close to Hungarian way of cooking and seasoning tripe stew, so we enjoyed so much) . We recommend to taste their homemade sangria served chilled in a huge pitcher. Better...

We ordered Paella La Barraca mixed. This was a good choice, it was very tastefull. The staff is friendly and helpfull in English. We... More

Lovely food. Very friendly staff. Mixed seafood paella was really really nice. Even the bread with the garlic mayo as side starter was great. Very reasonably priced for location and setting and overall quality. Gets a strong recommend from me.

Good Paella. Food was served in a timely and professional manner. However, the staff seemed less than genuine. It is definitely a place which caters to tourists. A good part of the the focus was clearly on turning tables.

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
