Where to find the best seafood paella?

I've tried forgettable paella in several places; the last place I recall really enjoying it was Segovia near Yonge & Wellesley. But I haven't been there for years. Anyone know some very good seafood paella?

  1. I'd also like to get recommendations on the best paella places in Toronto... I watched Bobby Flay's paella Throwdown episode over the weekend and developed a craving! Anyone? Anyone?

    1. I think the best you're going to find is at Segovia. Had it about a year ago and it was delicious, very well cooked. I believe we had the Valenciana.

      1. what about Casa Barcelona? I remember reading good reviews here a little while ago.

          That is one huge menu. I like that they offer a mini portion so I could try the veg and seafood paella...

        2. Haven't been to either Segovia or Casa Barcelona in over a year, but have had the paella at both places multiple times. Both were consistently good, so I hope they are still reasonable bets.

          1. I noticed a number of different paellas, including a few different seafood paellas, at Cambalache on Mt. Pleasant. At the time, my guest and I tried numerous tapas dishes, and found them all to be very flavourful and well executed. Good sign if you want to try the tapas there.

              I actually have tried the paella there and was very disappointed. I liked some of the other tapas but the paella was very meh. Which is a pity since it was very convenient!
