Everything perfect!

It looks like there are no tourists! We first had a salad and than Paella with lobster! It seemed like we ate it wrong. The owner (he seemed to be the owner) stopped when he saw us and told us how to eat it in a very friendly way. The interior, the Paella, the lovely waiters, the wine... read more

Very good traditional Paella Valenciana. Many locals come her, normally a very good sign of quality in Spain. Next time we will try the Paella De Mariscos

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 had eaten here before but did not get round to reviewing this excellent restaurant then. 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
