  • Real Paella catered our wedding in St. Augustine and we could not be happier with this choice. Juan and Nevin were pleasures to work with and the food was top notch. We weren’t interested in traditional wedding food (dry chicken and tough steaks.. no thank you!) and had lobster and chicken paella instead, which was so good! I would highly recommend this team for parties of any size.

    We hired Real Paella for our wedding. They were fast and professional and upbeat, which is always appreciated with such large events. Also, the food was delicious! I would definitely hire them again

    I can't say enough of Real Paella. Juan and his team are excellent all the way around: they are punctual, the food is delicious, the team is happy and willing to go out of their way and the presentation is exquisite. Thank you for offering your beautiful food and service here in Tallahassee and surrounding area!

  • The food was absolutely delicious! We hosted a party of roughly 15, there was plenty of chicken and pork paella - it was definitely a huge hit with our group! Juan was incredibly professional, flexible and accommodating especially considering we had quite a thunderstorm that evening. Thank you again Juan and the Real Paella team!

    For the third year, Real Paella catered a 175 person fundraiser that I helped plan. Juan and his crew are very professional, easy to work with and reliable! Most importantly, the food is delicious!

    Juan and the staff at Real Paella provided the paella dish for my husband's 80 birthday party on New Years Day. It was absolutely fantastic. The guests were most appreciative and we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Juan was excellent at communicating with me and answering my questions. The meal arrived on-time and with excellent instructions about how to heat and serve. I look forward to working with Real Paella for events in the future.

  • Very authentic and delicious spainish style paella. All of my guests were very pleased with the quality of the paella and salad. The servers are friendly and efficient, also having the paella prepared on site is quite a spectacle for the eyes and nose. Real paella will bring just the right amount of Spanish flare to your party. I look forward to having them cater my next gathering.

  • My wife and I wanted to do something special for our neighbors and friends, so we had a paella party for 32 people. Chefs Juan and David provided outstanding service and delicious paella cooked to perfection! They showed up on time, complete with tent to cook under, ready to go rain or shine. Tapas were decoratively laid out first, in anticipation of the main course, which was amazing to watch being prepared, and came out absolutely delicious! Juan and David provided and served everything needed so that we were able to enjoy time with guests. Virtually everyone that attended commented how much they loved the whole presentation and especially the food! If you want to have as great a time as we did, we highly recommend Chefs Juan and David of This definitely will not be our last event using them. Our best advice is to try and book well in advance since they are understandably very busy and in demand due to their fine and outstanding service provided. Thank you both very much for making our party so great!

  • Real Paella catering was phenomenal! The chefs were so nice, arrived early to set up, and cooked a delicious meal for everyone. The ingredients were high quality and they made plenty of food for everyone to eat as much as they'd like. Highly recommend them if you want a delicious dinner and a little show as well!

  • If I could give Real Paella 100 stars, I would. They were fantastic at our wedding. Not only did the paella taste great, but I’m sure the whole surrounding neighborhood could smell the deliciousness that is Real paella. the portions are awesome and I still noticed multiple guest going up for seconds and thirds. And Juan was so incredibly easy to work with. Pro tip: grab some tapas before all your guests go ham on them! Best catering service ever!

    positive review  We had Real Paella cater lunch for our family during the Covid 19 quarantine. Juan delivered our seafood paella right on time. The food was excellent and Juan is always a pleasure to deal with. Please consider supporting them now and in the future. This is the second time they’ve catered for us and it’s been excellent both times.

    negative review  The promo was enticing and exciting. The images and music strong. As a lifetime hospitality authority it would be necessary for me to experience the food and service before extending a rating that could influence their bottom line.
