Must try the Horchata

Really beautiful restaurant with gorgeous tiles. I had never tried horchata before, but it is an interesting nut milk with a lovely flavour. Do have one of the incredibly light fartons with your drink.

I tried a lot of horchata while I was in Valencia. This one was the best! I also loved the ambiance of this place. Very authentic feeling.

A great place for a late afternoon or mid morning reviver of the MOST delicious Churros and chocolate ever tasted (as voted by children experts!), and wholly agreed by me, an endless Churros fan. Also the Valencia Fartons are the lightest most delicious taste sensation, and of course hugely hilarious for young boys......and older boys!!! The delicious, very refreshing Horchata... More

Grat place to try out horchatta a milky drink made from crushed Tiger Nuts. The venue itself is a great place to cool off after a hot day touring, as it is tiled and feels a bit colder due to the decorative Spanish tiles. Plenty of staff and good service. It does get busy when the cruise ships are in... More

I've been coming here for years and Santa Catalina never disappoints. I LOVE their churros. And the price is amazing (hey, I live in Manhattan and we do have churros but they aren't very authentic, and in the one case where they are, they are quite expensive). I look at my bill and think--Ay!!!!!! If only we had Santa Catalina... More

After a long morning at the City of Arts and Sciences Museum in Valencia we decided to head back to the city for a quick bite to eat. It was around 2pm and most of the cafes were so crowded in Plaza Santa Catalina, we could not find a single place to rest our feet. We walked by this very... More

Beautiful building inside and out, with no fuss service. On a hot day nothing better than a refreshing glass of horchata and maybe a farton to keep you going.

We had churros and horchata on a Sunday and it wasn't busy. The place is on a side street and not very well lit. We actually thought it was closed if it wasn't for customers coming out the door. Staff was friendly. A bonus is the air conditioned room: a nice place to stop and cool down after a walk... More

We were curios to taste the horchata so we enter in the Horchataria Santa Catalina even because of the tiles that covers all the place. The choice was right because we have had a very good experience, we had horchata and fartos and they were very, very good.
