Of course everyone claims to have the best paella in town, but when you start to ask local's where they go for paella they all say the same place !!!! La Barraca ..... and of course it doesn't hurt that both Samantha Brown and Anthony Bourdain of the travel channel came and ate here and showed it on there TV shows !!!!!

We had reservations for a Saturday night at 8:00 pm and we were so glad we did, people in front of us were told that no walk in service was available for that day.

We were promptly seated and given English menu's .... the prices were extremely good for being such a great place. The paella plates start at 12 Euro's per person and run to 20 Euro's a person for the seafood one that we ordered.

The wine list is simple but greatly priced .... the service was friendly and we had a great experience.... be warned they charge you for bread and there garlic butter, but it was well worth it !!!!! the butter was out of this world good !!!!!

Would highly recommend it, but make sure you make reservations if not you won't get in !!!!!
