The food at this restaurant was really good. We had a paella and it was excellent, as was the starter (calamares). The wine selection was ample too.... The down side was the service. Yes, they were busy but it took at least 15 minutes to attend us once we had been seated, and that was the theme for most of... More

As a a business woman who frequently travels alone it is important to note places where it doesn't feel uncomfortable. The hotel suggested this as a place locals of to have great paella. Turns out after 8:30pm they don't serve paella for one. They still accommodated me at 9:30pm (early for dinner by local standards). Service after that was ok,... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the fideua at this centrally-located restaurant. We sat outside at the street, in the shade, and enjoyed a nice salad and some tasty croquettes before our fideua. Our 5-year-old son enjoyed his burger and fries, which were well prepared. This is a very good option for rice in the center of Valencia.... More

For starters we enjoyed smoked sardines, with dried tomatoes and caper cream on a hazelnut biscuit crust, followed by roast suckling pig with glazed shallots, meat jus... More

We had a very good seafood paella at Raco del Turia with a lovely red wine from the Valencia region. We ate outside on a lovely warm evening and the service was attentive so it was a pleasant experience.

We took the tasting menu. 30€ for 6 courses that were all almost perfect. Only downside is that some of the meals where too salty. Will clearly go back.

We ate dinner on Saturday night, having had the restaurant recommended by the Westin Hotel. The restaurant is bright, cheerful, and clean. The help is friendly, multi-lingual, and helpful. We ordered appetizers, a paella for two, and dessert. We had a mixed drink first-- very large glasses and a good pour of gin! Thank you for that! We had a... More
