With its traditional-looking ivy clad exterior and the name, one expects some sort of London-style club with dark oak panelling. It´s quite a surprise to find a light, white, modern, airy restaurant inside.... It was recommended by Valencian exiles as one of the best places...More

quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
