We came here on Sunday night as a multi-national group of six, including 2 kids. I must say, we were pleasantly surprised with La Paloma! When there's a group of Spanish people in the corner having a great time, you know you've come to the right place for Spanish grub and the menu didn't disappoint. Great flavours, huge portions and all at a decent price. The service was good, friendly and with a smile, even some colouring for the kids! Everyone finished their meal and were too stuffed for dessert! Great spot, we'll certainly be back for sure.

I went to La Paloma with my wife last Thursday, we loved the Spanish authenticity of this Spanish restaurant the colors were really nice and cheerful. We had a selection of tapas to start the plate was overloaded with variety this was a real hit. For the main I had the Lamb and my wife had the Paella both were delicious and we couldn't finish it all and at the waiters suggestion we took it home. Together with a carafe of red wine and two cofffees our bill was €68.45 Excellent meal Great value well done La Paloma!! we definitely be back!

I was disappointed in this restaurant. The menu sounds very authentic, but the food doesn't live up to it. The restaurant itself is a bit shabby. Service was friendly but a bit slow, especially as the place wasn't very busy. We shared a tortilla to start, and the portion was huge, so we were glad we decided to share. The tortilla was delicious. The mains, however, were very disappointing. We both had paella - one with pork, and one with chicken and seafood - and they were both quite bland and very low on rice. I wouldn't rush back, but I might return and try something else.

Went here with a deal. The olives provided were not very nice. I would not go back for the food and feel that the place does not put any great effort to making propoer spanish food. We ordered the tapas and none of it was great and some we did not eat. Possibly the worst meal I have ever had in Dublin.

I went here last night with my boyfriend, the decor is lovely, nice Spanish music in the background and that is where the authenticity stops, the chef was not Spanish and it was obvious he knew nothing about Spanish food and I doubt he ever stepped foot on Spanish soil. The food was horrible, we order a selection of tapas, 2 were edible however the special prawn dish was utterly disgusting. The house wine they served was like vinegar, and the olives were cheap and nasty. All the ingredients used in this restaurant were of low quality. The Spanish race would be disgraced, obviously will not be returning, can't believed this place is open for so many years,,,,,.

Went here as I remembered it being nice 10 years ago. It wasn't. As a nibble before dinner they brought out not bread and oil but a pack of Tayto in a bowl. Secondly the place was dead, literally a handful of people in there. The staff were nice but the food was terrible. I had seafood rissotto and there was a piece of deep fried cod on top of the rissotto. The seafood in the rice was chewy too. My friend had paella, a typical spanish dish but there was very little rice, no saphron and a lot of chewy fish. Enough said-do not go here if you want a nice meal.

I was very disappointed when I visited this restaurant. I had heard great things about the food, the drink, the atmosphere, everything. The food for some of the guests was a little bland and tasteless. My starter was lovely, but my main wasn't that great. I went for the stuffed pepper option and was disappointed. The service was very bad, plates were left on the table for a very long time, the drinks were brought down to the table slowly and not together. The waiter didn't seem to want to serve us, it was almost as if he avoided our table altogether. It wasn't even as if the place was full. The worst thing about the night was when the television was tuned into the X Factor final and the volume was turned up high enough. That should not happen in a restaurant. I don't think I will return to this restaurant sadly.

I really enjoyed a meal at La Pamola, just off main Temple Bar area. The food was delicious and portions were big. Lamb was very soft and tasty. House paella was goregeous too, but not the usual paella you would get in Spain. Prices are a bit high, bit if you go for daily specials they are very reasonable.

First visit last Friday night. Three adults for dinner. The atmosphere is great and relaxed. The menu is interesting - not the ususal fare. We ordered 3 starters, 3 mains, 2 desserts, bottle of red wine - ONLY 56e. The quality was really good. I would recommend this highly to anyone, Excellet choose to star the night out, their again.. Plenty of families in this early dinner .

Was there with 2 friends and, although it was very quiet (and a little cold) to start (we were there just before 7pm) it filled up as the evening went on. Food was really great - I had sizzling prawns to start and the house paella - really good. My 2 friends had a selection of tapas and they were really happy with what they got. Service was great and friendly. I think it's great falue for money and is a spot I'll certainly be revisiting. Keep it up!

Restaurant response:
hey, don't know how this credibility lark works...? enlighten pse!! bringing table of 6 week after next..... confused!!!

I ate here last week with two friends. The food was beautiful. I had the cod for mains and it was delicious and very nicely presented. The service was subtle and the decor very inviting. I will definitely eat here again. To sum up my review - I joined menu pages specifically to give this restaurant my official thumbs up!

I got there around eight o'clock on Thu evening. Only two customers at that time and I thought that might be a warning but I guess this is just due to the fact that La Palma is not on the main route in Temple Bar. We had a delicious white sangria served in a stone jug and mugs. Both took garlic bread for starters. It watered our mouths and luckily main came in quickly afterwards. I had Cuban Paella (rice with fish marinated in rum served with 3 chunks of lime and 3 slices of peppers) and my friend decided to go for day special which was chicken with baked potatos. All good and tasty, will come again to refresh my memories of Barcelona. Spanish melodies played all the make a big plus!

Had to grab quick bit to eat while in Temple Bar area. Another restaurnant round the corner was rammed and didn't want to wait as it was past 10pm. This place was empty but looked like it had a decent little tapas menu. Food & service was fine. Did the job of filling the void quickly with usual Spanish fare that that moment required.

Ate here last week early eve so took advantage of the early bird...good value, any tapas stater and limited choice of main between different paellas. My stater was the lamb, not great, a bit cremated but partners stater was lovely. Both had paella although the waiter did his best to sell us the days special of fish and chips but we really wanted Spanish food!! Others in the restaurant ordered it and it looked great. We had one of each of the paellas which were gorgeous. Nice waiter. Great value. Going again next week.

The Paella I had was delicious, and served in very suitable portions. Their Early Bird Menu in general was very satisfactory, and the service was quick - but that may have been to do with the small numbers (it was sometime before seven o clock, after all). Creme Catalan was sweet and moreish, and I also had an Orange and Chorizo risotto which was the highlight of my meal. It was perfect. No complaints in retrospect. It was a lovely evening.
