The restaurant was recommended to us by locals. The serves is good, they speak English and the prices are not high. The sea food paella was wonderful.

“Very bad experience”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

My wife and I had been walking at the beach in the morning, hence, we were quite hungry when we started looking for some tapas around 2pm. El Rall looked ok from the outside, hence, we decided to have some tapas there.
We ordered "patatas bravas", mussels, grilled paprikas, some sliced meat, a coke and a beer.
My beer was served in a lemonade glass. Not preferred, but still tastes ok.
The patates bravas were fairly greasy, the mussels did not have much taste and the cold paprikas appeared to come from a jar. Even the meat from the large hams, did not taste as well as in other restaurants the days before. For us, the worst experience in a few years. Price quality bad.

“Very good paella”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

We visited El Rall after the recommendation of the man who owned the apartment we rented in Valencia. He reported this was his favorite paella in the area.
It was easy to find and the outside terrace was lovely. We had good service and the paella was very good.
We actually enjoyed the dogs who obviously belonged to the restaurant. They did not beg us for food and it added some character to the area.
There were also a couple of musicians who played during lunch that were quite good. It was apparent that El Rall screens the musicians who play there rather than allowing just anyone to play that shows up. They were tasteful and added to the experience.
I would recommend El Rall.

“slow”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

we settled into this restaurant as it boasts a beautiful terrace and it looked so inviting and relaxed, just like a holiday should be. The food was nothing special, paella was not too bad but the service is way tooo sloooow for us.

“Great tapas + atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Had dinner there. Pros: Located in the heart of an Old Town - quiet, romantic place. Tables outside - on the tiny plaza, tables inside as well. Good tasty tapas, descent paella, tasty "Agua de Valencia" :) good service.

Cons: dogs walk around the tables asking for the food; annoying flowers sellers :)
