We have tried most of the restaurants on Sydney road as we lived in the area for a while so naturally we got around to La Paella being lovers of Spanish food however we were left disappointed and hungry. There were only a few people...More

"We've never had complaints about our paella before." Oh really? What about the review further down this listing? $50 for two - gluggy leaden rice, warm, not hot, vague seasoning, scraps of chicken pieces, a couple of scrawny prawns, a few mussels, a handful of...More

My husband said he felt like Spanish so we went to La Paella. We had been there many years ago and it did exceptional paella at that time. Firstly, there was nobody in the restaurant when we rocked up but we didn't have a lot...More

DO NOT EAT HERE. If you have any minimal conception of what a Tagine is, you're gonna be bitterly disappointed in what arrives. The main ingredient was water, with a few potato cubes (potato in a Tagine??), served with bread??? And a single slice of...More

La paella as it's name suggest, should be famous for paella. But contrast to its name that's the worst dish to try in the restaurant. Ordered chicken and seafood paella for 2 people.. seafood was frozen. Not cooked properly. No salt. No taste. Completely dry....More

Nice ambience but the food was bland. Had the stuffed bread and mushrooms for entree. Mushrooms were nice but the bread was flavorless. Both served on a bed of fairly ordinary looking mixed leaves called a salad. We had the chicken and seafood paella. Again,...More

Our focus is always on simple, authentic home-style food prepared with the very best ingredients. Using traditional herbs and spices, nuts and fruits and the sweet aroma of orange blossom and rose water, our chef prepares Melbourne's finest Moroccan cuisine. The Moroccan tagine, featuring slow cooked meats in the authentic claypot, is a must for all food lovers. A warm ambience will immediately welcome you at La Paella. Relax in comfy couches at colourful tiled tables. Traditional lanterns hang from the ceiling. Hand-made Moroccan ceramics adorn the walls. The introduction of our Moroccan bazaar ensures you have many exotic pieces to admire and purchase. We also have our 'Royale' Moroccan tent for courtyard dining. Lit by huge hand-made lanterns from Morocco and pillow lined bench seats, it's the perfect way to experience all that we have to offer.
