Paella

Asked around and did some research for best paella. There always seemed to be something wrong with the sound of other places. Chose this restaurant and was very happy. Located in a beautiful area. We dined out on the street. We had the best paella of our entire trip. I recommend.

Loved the arroz Caldoso de gambas e sepia, and the paella was very nice as well. We didn't had a reservation, but they get us a table in the terrace that was so nice but a little to hot, so we highly recommend a reservation to book inside the restaurant. The service was very nice although a little bit slow.... More

We opted for the paella Valencia, very good, chicken and rabbit paella. Good service albeit a bit pretentious. Nice atmosphere, elegant restaurant. Would return for the authentic food.

Are you looking for a restaurant serving authentic Valencian paella? Then this is the place! My wife and I came to this restaurant on recommendation of our hotel staff. It opened at 8pm and had a very nice "old world" ambiance. The dinner was paced very leisurely, and the wait staff was very helpful, attentive, but non-intrusive. We started with... More

For local authentic Spanish food we were recommended by our hotel concierge at Caro Hotel for authentic Spanish paella! The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. The paella was delicious! The fish was ok. The restaurant is small and cosy, just what you need for an authentic feel. Overall a recommended place by the locals.

Raco Del Turia was a recommended by the concierge at our hotel when our first-choice was fully booked. We didn't care one jot once we got there. A lovely, unassuming frontage belies a really good restaurant serving traditional Valencian food.

We were referred to this restaurant by the staff in the hotel we were staying in. It was walking distance so we decided to give it a try. The dinning room was very pretty and looked like you were eating in a traditional Spanish Restaurant. The food was so good, I almost cried when I had the steamed mussels. The... More

Prior to eating we were adjacent on the main road at Patrick's Irish bar....all happy despite soccer draw at home with Scotland. We were recommended to ask for Vicente, who gave us a warm welcome.
