Book your lunch at this fantastic restaurant serving fresh seafood and traditional paellas! Sip your glass of refreshing albarino as you sit and enjoy beautiful views of the Mediterranean. The service was excellent and the price was an excellent value.

Stopped by Valencia and had to visit this legendary place. Ordered two portions of paella, one with gambas, the other with chicken. Just perfect. 2 giant portions were satisfying for 4 hungry folks such as ourselves. Downed it with a local wine. The place is next to the coastline and along a boulevard of other shops. Must go once. Expect... More

La Pepica was recommended to us by a local guide. We only had this one day to have paella in Valencia and we decided to give it a go without doing prior research, not really knowing what to expect, or even where it was located. The taxi driver nodded as soon as we said "La Pepica por favor". We later... More

Pleasant outlook on the golden beach and blue sea. A litre jug of cold lager certainly helps you mellow and chill on your lunch time.The Valencia salad consisted of the normal fresh tuna, tomatoes, sweet corn, lettuce, hard boiled egg  red onions and cucumber. The paella (we had vegetarian paella) was delicious. Friendly service.

La Pepica has a beautiful view of the sea, which adds to the enjoyment of eating the paella. We ordered lobster paella, which is very nice and fresh. The price of the paella is on the high side when compared to those sold in other restaurants. And each order has to be for a minimum of two persons. The garlic... More

Allmosa no service from all the waiters running around. Finally we had a chance to order some small starters and wine as... More

I was there for lunch and I was really surprised to find a table available without booking (it is always full, so it is better to book days before.) I ate Paella mista (with fish and meat) and it was delicious. In Valencia this kind of paella is the most common, if you go there it is surely a "must".... More

Visited with a large business group. Good service (but it was a quiet evening). Food is reliable, but I have eaten better seafood elsewhere in the city
