La Paella Tapas bar is a family run business, established in 1995 by Miguel Sr and his wife Danka. We are proud to be the longest running Tapas bar & restaurant serving Spanish cuisine with a variety of fine wines and spirits in Southgate North London area.

Since 2006 Miguel Jr has actively taken over the day to day running of the restaurant by moving the business forward. In keeping with the traditional theme of wooden beams and images of Spain mixed in with a modern twist.

Our aim is to create an atmosphere inspired by Spain’s many traditional Tapas bars and restaurants. Bringing the best of traditional, modern tapas to North London. Today as ever, La Paella is a great place to enjoy an informal meal or get together with a simple yet delicious selection of Tapas dishes or our traditional paellas.
