Today we had a very good lunch at Riff. A bit strange decor in the restaurant but with very good dishes and an enthusiastic chef. Ingenious dishes well prepared, real pieces of art.

This Michelin Star restaurant offers top quality food for a very reasonable price. We went there to eat on Valentine’s Day and we had a very special lunch. Highly recommended

We enjoyed an excellent meal at Restaurante Riff, and I definitely highly recommend the 5-course lunch menu with wine pairing. Fresh and exquisite products, fantastic breads, perfect pace of service.

I’ve never wished for a nut allergy as much as I did upon the completion of a lunch menu at Riff. It seems as if the same master nut sauce was used to dress each of the 5 dishes (including dessert)— masked only by slightly...More

Description
To be a professional chef is a magnificent thing. It is always a pleasure to be able to cook for people, for friends, family and for my children, who have been great fans as well as honest critics since they were small.
I love to cook at home, to invite friends and to make a Spanish 'cocido', in my own style obviously, or spatzle, a recipe from the Black Forest, which reminds me of my grandmother who was a phenomenal cook and my grandfather who I still remember collecting lamb's lettuce from beneath he snow. I always like to know the person I am cooking for, to know something of their personality so I am better able to achieve the aim of making them happy through the food that I prepare. For that reason my restaurant is small.
I enjoy going to the Central Market every morning and seeing the stallholders, my friends, chatting with them and feeling accepted as part of their world. I never cease to appreciate the architecture of the market building or the quality of produce throughout the changing seasons. Another extraordinary place is the auction at the port where I buy fresh fish. The buildings are ugly, almost third world,
I hope that someday they realise the great potential of this part of our city, perhaps even open it up to tourists. Imagine a stroll between the boats, between the fishermen, watching as they unload boxes of the freshest possible fish! Que calidad!

I cannot imagine doing anything else. I feel incredibly lucky to have found this profession. It sounds pretentious I know, but I am truly delighted to be able to dedicate myself to the cuisine of this region, with that produce, that quality, that tradition that I discover little by little, I cook Valencian food, but I cook MY Valencian food.
