Taken there by my daughter who is studying in Valencia and this did not disappoint! Stunning food and great service. We had 2 different paella both served in traditional pans. Food hot and delicious. Great value.

Incredible Paella Valenciana.... life changing! Took a little bit of time to come out but definitely worth the wait. Just give yourself a lot of time if you're on a tight schedule/have to make a train or something to be safe. The dish was huge and was intended for at least 2 people - there were 2 of us and...

Really cute restaurant, the calamares was fresh and just delicious. The wait for paella was 55 minutes, but definitely worth it! We ordered for 3, but definitely enough for 5 as we even had leftovers for takeaway. Prices are quite standard. Definitely recommend this place. Service is friendly too.

I called into La Riua as it has good reviews for its paella. I arrived close to closing time, but they found me a table. Decoration was nice. Plates, pictures and certificates on the wall. Plenty of locals eating including a birthday party. I ordered the Valencia paella. It looked good when it came, but had only 1 piece of... More

The restaurant is very traditional, but the quality of the food is good. The price is acceptable, considering the service and the location.

When you ask where to go for the best paella in Valencia this place gets more mentions than many of the others. And rightly so. We went on a Saturday afternoon and as far as I could make out most of the diners were locals, which is never a bad sign. The place is not much to look at from... More

I ate here with a friend. She was really enthousiastic about the ambiance and the paella. I was not blown away, seemed a little too touristic. The paella was very good though. It was a little expensive, for I am a student. Overall experience: good.

I've been there twice while I was in Valencia, and I tried the paella valenciana and the seafood paella,both of them came after 45 mins..then we asked twice for some butter and it came after reminding to the waiter. No good desserts..

We went here because the reviews were so good and we wanted to have a traditional Valencian paella. What a disappointment. Lots of food for the price, but everything bland. Will have to go back to Valencia and try another paella because I refuse to believe that this is the dish that everyone has such a high impression of. Don't... More

The food is good, not excellent. The personell and the furniture the same, good , but not excellent. I do not have a comparison about the prices with other restaurantes, but to me they looks ok. The overall consideration is ok, but I would like to taste somo better restaurant. I mean that, if I order a Paella with sea... More
