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

I was here five years ago and wanted to return. Made a reservation some weeks in advance and looked forward to a lunch to remember. We got a lunch to remember, one of the worst we ever had.. 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

"This is the place for the best paella" is what my friends told me. Checked it out and we had the seafood paella, (all cleaned up with no shells etc). But first we had a very nice salad with these large tasty capers and tuna mixed into iceburg lettuce. Delicious! A plate of baby clams were enjoyed with bread. Then... More

The paella here is really tasty, and the service is efficient though a bit brusque. The waiters are polite but really sometime too busy for you. All in all, still a good meal by the sea

I have visited this restaurant a few times now and the food and service is excellent. This place has consolidated into a "must" if you want to try the authentic Valencian cuisine - not limited to the paella, by the way. Pleasant outlook on the golden beach and blue sea. Highly recommended.
