Paella & Tapas is an easy catering solution that will entertain your guests by cooking sensational paella before your eyes. Combine our delicious paella with tapas for a complete Spanish experience.

Your Big Day is a personal experience where you want everything to be just perfect.

Our job is to make sure your Wedding Reception fits exactly with your expectations. We focus on the finer details to ensure the catering is a worry-free event, allowing you to relax and enjoy your moment.

We don’t try our delicious tapas, served by our friendly staff. We use quality ingredients, locally sourced when possible. Our tapas are authentic Spanish food,  ideal for entertaining while waiting for the main dish the paella. Tapas are prepared fresh on-site; some of our most popular options include:

  • Chicken, or feta and spinach croqueta
  • Crostini's with scotch fillet or prawn

We offer taster sessions so that you can sample our paella and tapas range and decide on your catering wedding menu with total confidence. Our Taster sessions start at $50 (Paellas and Tapas) depending on your menu selection and is the perfect opportunity to discuss your wedding plans in detail.

Paella options include:
Paella de Marisco

  • Fish, mussels, squid, and certified sustainable wild-caught Australian prawns.

Paella de Pollo

  • Free-range chicken, and Spanish chorizo,  peas,  capsicum, and onions.

Vegetarian Paella

  • Snow peas, asparagus, artichokes, porcini mushrooms. A little lighter, but still bursting with flavour. It's a rich vegetable-based dish filled with seasonal vegetables.

Did we mention our contribution to charity?  We believe in Karma. Get in contact with any questions, to book a tasting or to grab a coffee to discuss your special day.


During the nineties Manuel worked in the kitchens of several restaurants in Madrid as well as the family restaurant, while he attended university. After his apprenticeship and hard work he decided to use this degree, leaving the kitchens behind for a few years. It was after arriving to Australia in 2009 when his passion for cooking ignited again and started Paellas and Tapas Traditional in Perth , that earned him recognition and success.

Head Chef and Owner


Yes. Our Catering Company  provides  Biodegradable plates, forks(made of plants not plastic) and napkins. Our aim is to make your Party or Event as much fun as possible for you and your guests. We make it hassle free so you can relax and enjoy yourself.

We are happy to travel far depending on the type of Event / availability  and your requirements. Generally, 45minutes  from Perth CBD. Depending on your location a distance surcharge may apply for locations outside this range. Call us!

The amazing Paella that we prepare cannot be rushed.  We will arrive to the venue 30 minutes earlier to set up. It takes about an hour sometimes a bit more to cook the Paella. The aroma of the Paella as it cooks means that people really look forward to their Paella Dish. In some occasions we may drop equipment the day before the Event.

There are many types of Paella.  The most popular Paellas are meat, most commonly chicken based, seafood and vegetarian; all of which are delicious. My favourite Paella it’s the Black Rice Paella , using squid ink, with aioli. My mum’s favourite was chicken and prawn Paella (Paella mixta).

We need approximately a 2m x 3m space to provide paella catering. The size of the catering event will dictate space requirements.  For Tapas Catering we will require a larger space.

No, the Paellas have not chilli on them, some of the Tapas may have a bit of  chilli.  We can prepare  them to your taste. Just tell us when you make your booking.

Yes, All of our Paellas are Gluten Free

Yes, our Vegetarian Paella contains no animal products, eggs or nuts.

We aim to be totally self-sufficient wherever possible. We need under cover area  and if the Catering event it’s in the evening, electricity to light the Paella and Tapas cooking.  We may you need your oven for some of the Tapas.

If you have suitable food storage containers, we can place any leftover Paella into them, it can easily last for 3-4 days. We have as well eco-friendly compostable take away containers should you require them.

Typically 20 people for a single Paella is the minimum. We are able to Cater easily for 100 or 200 in a single sitting. However, if you are hosting a Party for 60 people for example, which includes a few vegetarians or guests with special dietary requirements, we will Cater especially for all your guests needs as part of our normal service; just Give us a Call on 0402 119350 to discuss your requirements.

We provide Catering pretty much for  anything you can think of. We have Catered for Corporate Events, Birthdays, Engagements, Weddings, Anniversaries and Christenings.

I (Manuel) prepare and cook the way my Mum and grandmother taught me when I was growing up in Madrid. If you are looking for a Traditional Spanish experience, then Paella and Tapas Traditional  is what you have been looking for. Paella is Traditionally a communal dish so it is ideal for any large gathering because it is simple, tasty and easy to serve. A feature of any good Paella is the spectacle; from watching it being cooked, and then finally getting to taste it and tantalise the senses.

We require a 15% deposit to secure the booking. Deposits are non – refundable.

We will quote Paella and Tapas per person, the price reflects the quality of the ingredients, most of them Spanish when possible,  the transport, the insurances, the staff and the traditional preparation of the stock, which take hours and the generous portions.

Best vegan menu ideas for our wedding

Hello, we have a few guests with vegan dietary requirements coming to our wedding. What are some plant based menu ideas that are a hit? Canapes, main and dessert please. Thank you!

Paellas and Tapas Traditional Catering

We have vegan paella on the menu

Mushroom crostini is full vegan. 

Now vegetarian is much more flexible as they can eat dairy & egg  and that opens a world of options.

There is nothing that cannot be done. 

Having a coffee to discuss menu requirements is the best choice
