    Delicious Paella and Professional Staff

    My experience with Real Paella and Juan was wonderful. They were very easy to get in touch with, responded quickly, showed up on time, set up and cooked a beautiful and delicious Paella. I got the Paella mixto with seafood (no Mussels) on top and the Spanish salad. It was excellent and I got many compliments on it at my son's Rehearsal dinner. I also hired the Flamenco Guitarist through Real Paella and he added a lovely, Spanish element to the evening. They set up the huge Paella Pan by the Pool under a tent (which was good because it rained). Juan and his staff were professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Real Paella to anyone looking to feed a crowd at a reasonable price. We also had leftovers they boxed up for us, which my son and his groomsmen ate the next day.
