We booked this only a couple of hours after arriving in Valencia on a Saturday evening so didn´t expect to get a table but were lucky and arrived to find a flower marking our reserved table. The service was excellent, very friendly, and the food outstanding, including piquillo peppers stuffed with prawns, the best Russian salad ever, delicious croquetas, oxtail to die for, baby lamp chops, all perfect. It was also fun to be able to choose a wine from the shelf rather than plough through a wine list. We would definitely return.

Good food but the whole experience was made better by our excellent waitress who made some great recommendations and was very attentive. And the fact she spoke very good English did help! We all felt it was good value for money. Everyone was happy with their meal.

We spotted this very traditional looking restaurant on our way back to our hotel on our first or second night in Valencia, but didn't get to eat there until the last one, which we were regretting by the end of the meal, as there were so many things on the menu that we wanted to try.

The service was very friendly, the staff very patient in explaining the dishes, and the cooking of high quality ingredients was excellent. We just loved the clams, the baby lamb chops and the bull's tail stew, and I'm sure we'd have loved everything else on the menu too. Another great touch is the cabinet of wines - instead of a wine list, all the wine bottles, at very good prices, are displayed before you; the staff will advise on what may suit and everyone we saw or heard seemed very pleased with their choice, including us.

When we left, at about 10.30 pm, there was a mixture of tourists like us and locals, though it struck us as being more a "locals'" restaurant rather than a fashionable place trying to attract trendy diners of whatever origin, and none the worse for that.

The bill, including a very good bottle of wine, water, coffee, first and second courses, but no dessert, was €77 to which we added a €10 tip. A bargain!

We went without reservation for lunch. The place nicely decorated place was full with mainly Spanish people but the wife of the owner made room for the two of us. She was a perfect host for us during the whole lunch. The card is complete and extended with local but also international food. As a main course we had an entrecote steak that was grilled to perfection. The wine we could pick from a big rack that had all the Spanish wines offered in their restaurant with the price on it. Prices were very moderate for the quality food and wines they offered. We had a great afternoon.
