“..... too bad..... !”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

....... it is a pity that a resto in such a central place serves so bad food !
Morcilla like a cream (buah !!!...) - croquetas de bacalao frozen (in the sense that the core was STILL frozen !!!!!!) not to speak about the poor jamon!!!!!

“In Valencia right after a corner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

After we read some reviews, we were a bit concerned that we will find there the sort of pub for state employees. In fact It turned out to be a good restaurant, quite hidden, so suitable only for connoisseurs :), friendly service, quiet terrace protected from the noise of the city, excellent menu: tasty grilled squid, delicious paella Valenciana very best beers local and sangria. Unfortunately it was not open on Sundays.

“Disappointed with the Paellas”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

My partner and I visited Valencia for the first time. We went to Bodego de la Sarieta based on reviews made on Tripadvisor from May 2012.

Perhaps the ownership of the restaurant had changed since May 2012, but we were both disappointed.

I would NOT RECOMMEND this restaurant for PAELLA. Perhaps, other choices on the menu would be better.

I had the Shellfish paella. Firstly, both our paellas were way too over-salted! There were hardly any seafood. One very small prawn, and 4 very small shrimp in shell. (No meat in it after shell removed). 2 mussels, and 3 very small pieces of cuttlefish.

My partner had the rabbit, chicken, and vegetable paella. Meat pieces dry and bony with not much substance. A couple lima beans and a few pieces of overcooked green beans.
Needless to say, we were not able to eat that amount of salty rice!
It was a lunch set menu for 20.50 euros each, which was a choice of a tapas or salad and choice of Paella.
Not cheap for a nothing much meal.

“Great restaurant for Valencian cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

If you are in Valencia looking for a local non tourist trap restaurant, this is the place for you. It is so well hidden that you will need a map and the precise address to find it. Otherwise you will never walk in front of it while visiting the city. We had great tapas, especially the first 2 on the menu that have Valencian names and are based on pepper and codfish. Another great tapas is the "plato de la taberna" which contains quail eggs.
Then we had valencian and moriscos (fish) paella. They were very good even if maybe I got better paella elsewhere.
The service was very quick and nice. They offered us a digestive before leaving.

“Great food amazing service ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Had an amazing set menu for 21€ per person. Consisting of 6 tapas, paella for the table and dessert. Paella had an amazing flavour the dessert was small but after the amount of paella we had it needed to be! Had a slight language issue with the staff so we ended up ordering the wrong menu the service staff were very understanding and happily changed our menu. Great last night in Valencia thanks to the good food and good service!
