Before I went to Valencia I did a little research where to eat the best paella. Because my friends hunger I didn’t get there … She picked El Gallo de Oro … and so I’ve tried the worst paella. I didn’t want to go there...More

You can't go too wrong with a three course lunch for €10 and this place delivered nicely enough. There's no fancy cooking here - the paella was basic but ok; the simply cooked fresh fish with nicely home-cooked chips was really rather good, and the...More

Simply terrible... the food, the waiters... if they think that the 10 € is it worth? They are totally wrong!! The beer was ok... If you don't want to throw your money out of the window go to some other restaurant.

The food was thrown on our table, it was salty, greasy, the chicken dry and paella instant rice.. the floors were covered in spilled food and no one seemed to be bothered by it. Not worth 10€

We had a menu del dia lunch for 3 persons, all took different meals, and they were all good. Waiters were really nice to us (probably due to small kids). I'm surprised to see so many bad reviews to this place, because it's location, food...More

This is the biggest tourist trap in Valencia. We went because the line to eat inside the Mercado was too long for my kids. McDonalds or a bag of Doritos is 10xs better. Calimari was nasty and tasted rotten. Steak was paper thin and tasteless....More

The food was really nice here. You can pick among 5 starters, 5 main dishes and 5 deserts or coffee. I had a delicious sea food paella here and also tried the roasted chicken leg and would recommend both. The waiter knew English and everything...More
