I am from the Valencia region, the area where the best paellas are cooked and Puigmola has served me one of the best paellas I have ever tasted.

Fantastic paella, very remote, very Spanish but worth the visit. From Gandía follow the road all the way to Barx and the then puigmola - not easy to find but we had a local with us. A great way to while away the afternoon.

Four of us lunched in June 2016. Our hosts were charming and gave us a warm welcome, and a tour of the (impressive) kitchen. The service was excellent, and the food delicious, and eaten in lovely surroundings. The bill was very reasonable, which means that overall we could not fault Puigmola, it was just great!

Fantastic food, we sampled the tapas as well as the renowned paella, enjoying two visits. Would highly recommend if you want the real taste of Spain. Despite our lack of Spanish the staff were extremely helpful and made the experience all the more special.

In Restaurant Puigmola can enjoy the traditional paella , as it was elaborated a century ago , with the slow , even heat of the wood , which gives it a very distinctive flavor . This is a family restaurant, whose history dates back to 1925. The know-how and customer care has been passed down from generation to generation.
