Enjoyed the selection of tapas, quick service, friendly staff. Paella was also fresh and tasty, good range. Market atmosphere adds to it.

We decided to try a variety of tapas and would be back for that as it was amazing. The pork belly was magnificent.

It's hard to walk by this place without wanting to go in. The huge paella pans out the front send wonderful aromas into the air and when you eat it you're never disappointed

This place came up on my search engine when I was looking for Spanish cooking ingredients in South Melbourne and reading about it, we thought we should try it.

We went on a Wednesday at lunchtime and it was totally packed. However the extremely efficient and pleasant mannered waiter found us a table promptly and we ordered one of their paellas that is made from scratch, meaning a 40 minute wait. He suggested a wine which we never heard of while we were waiting and it was wonderful. Not the sort of thing that we would normally order -it turned out to be sauvignon blanc combined with moscato when we read the label - but perfect for the day.

We didn’t already order any tapas and could only just finish the paella which was excellent.

Recommended.

How can you resist a restaurant billed as the World's Best Paella outside Spain with a with a 2016 trophy to back it up! I went to the location at the South Melbourne Market in the early evening to beat the rush. Wasn't anything fancy but sat outside under sunny skies, had paella and a couple of cold beers, and watched people. Great experience!
