BEST PAELLA EVER...?

wonderful seafood restaurant set back from the seafront on Platja Malvarrosa. Superb selection on Galician, French and Valencian Oysters, Lobster Paella; all in a delightful traditional setting. Can't wait to go back!

The best paella ever. It's slowly cooked over wood and you can really taste it. We will go there again for sure. Keep in mind you need to make a reservation in advance because the paella needs to be ordered for you.

The best authentic paella in a family run restaurant established in 1922.!! We ordered the original Paella Valenciana (duck, rabbit & snails)because we wanted to try it. But they have many different types like with seafood, the Paella de Mariscos (shrimp, calamari & snails). It had generous amounts of socarrat - the crusty Bomba rice at the bottom of the... More

Best paella ever. Not cheap but worth every penny. Food and service exceptional. Will return again. Kids also had a great meal. Was by far the best food we experienced in Valencia.

Great location just across the road from the beach; lovely atmosphere decorated with local ceramic tiles (no longer made there unfortunately) and wonderful Lobster Paella. Our lunch ended at 5.00 PM which says it all perhaps...

This place was highly recommended to us, and with a reason. We had the most amazing lobster paella, absolutely delicious. The appetizers were OK but the reason to go is the paella. The taste, the presentation, everything. When in Valencia this is one restaurant you have to visit.

I was entertaining a couple of friends who had not visited Valencia before and they wanted to experience a proper authentic paella in a traditional Valencian restaurant by the sea.This ticked all the boxes and did not disappoint,We had reserved a table thankfully as...

Visited Casa Carmela because we wanted to try an authentic paella and didn't have time during our short stay to make the bus journey out to the Albufera as recommended. Easy to get to - get off the tram at Eugenia Vines then walk North along the Playa de Malvarossa beach. Nice surroundings - we sat on the terrace at... More

Recommended to me by my Spanish friends, this place was heaving with locals and tourists! Located by the beach, Casa Carmela serves up some of the best paella you will have the pleasure of eating in Valencia. The interior and exterior are as authentic as the food, the staff are polite and the food is reasonably priced! We tried the... More

The food was delicious, the baby cuttlefish (although it was alittle diffcicult to eat around the content), the croquetas and the seafood paella was just lovely... More
