This place is amazing, a great restaurant with a perfectly cooked Paella, or one of the "rices" It's a good idea to do a reservation, and if possible request one of the private rooms, you will be more relaxed. Visit the kitchen, and enjoy the experience and this GREAT restaurant (the service was also outstanding).

It was my first time eating paella and this restaurant gave me perfect experience, Sea food paella was so good. I think if you are gluttonous you have to order the paella which is for two person as it is written in the menu. Or order some starters with it.

Make time to go to probably the best restaurant in Valencia. You will need to book in advance and if you want the classic paella you will also have to order that in advance. Very good menu, not cheap but excellent quality - enjoy.

We were told that in this restaurant the local paella (with rabbit) could be enjoyed. Nice restaurant, a bit out of town (15 min by taxi or a nice bike ride). Popular with locals, so it must be good. Various peallas on the menu, the local paella only by pre-order (like we did). Personally I think the pealla is a... More

Called to book and were told we couldn't so we turned up. The staff were not very inviting and came across as rude to tourists. The restaurant was empty literally and were told we couldn't eat.

We met a local gentleman while walking on the beach and he recommended this restaurant to us. We wanted to try Paella Valencia, but were told we have to pre-order several days in advance. Instead, we were recommended to order red shrimp Paella and it was delicious! We were also taught to eat Paella in a proper way by our... More

Lovely place, great staff, yummy fish paella, my favourite was the garlic prawns, so freshly cooked you could slice into it with the edge of a spoon!!! Definitely go and have an authentic valencian meal.. I would add however, that I do not think they have English menus and even though I didn't really need it, I don't think the... More

Don't bother to go here unless you have a reservation - they are only open for a small window in the afternoon (1-4 pm) and although almost every table was empty at 1:30, they could not accommodate our party of 3 in the dining room. We did get seats at the bar only to find out that you have to... More

We had paella Valenciana and fried fish. Both were excellent! You need to pre-order paella so you won't have to wait long. Paella was fantastic, rice was cooked to perfection. Vegetables, snails and rabbit were delicious. Highly recommend. Service was fast and professional. Extra thanks for terrific selection of music! Total with tip (no wine, coffee or desert but they...
