La Paella.

The rustic flavours of the classic Spanish paella are perfectly re-created in our kitchens. From the rich paprika and saffron highlights, to the perfectly caramelised socarrat, each aspect is meticulously crafted using fresh market ingredients.

Our passion for Spanish cuisine is what makes our paella the best outside of Spain. Our award-winning paella is a recipe centuries in the making, inspired by the masters themselves.

Since opening our first location 12 years ago, our paella has become as iconic as the South Melbourne Market itself. The pure joy of sitting on the sidelines and enjoying some paella with a glass of wine is unmatched. Experience the luscious flavours of Spain in Melbourne.

Conversations with friends, good wine and sharing tapas…
Perfect.

Simply Spanish has always been about recreating the authentic Spanish restaurant experience in Melbourne. We use only the best local produce to delight the senses and deliver traditional, rustic Spanish food.

Join us in celebration of Spanish culture and flavours! Pull up a chair and try traditional tapas, such as sizzling garlic prawns and pan-seared chorizo. Or get your hands on some of our newer menu offerings and discover why our paella is known as the best outside of Spain.
