Came here to try the mussels after hearing they were the best. They were big and plump. However, they came out about 1 minute after we ordered them. There is no way that those mussels were made to order and I had a suspicion that they were not the freshest. There was absolutely nothing special about the dish. This was... More

Recommended by hotel concierge who advised the mussels - they were really good. The atmosphere inside was excellent with the staff calling out the orders to each other. Well worth finding and enjoying.

We came here for a drink before dinner across the street, but we loved the feel of this place. Ordered a few tapas while standing at the bar and had a few drinks. Would definitely come back here and recommend this place to others. The place was lively and the shells on the floor gave a cozy feel.

One of the best restaurants we visited in Valencia. The waiter only spoke Spanish which adds up to the authentic feel and reassures that it is not a tourist restaurant. Enjoyed the mussels, sepia, croquetas and calamares.

.........Not muscles. It is actually famed for a special mussel which was out of season when we visited. But we tried the 'ordinary' mussels - and they were superb. Very good seafood tapas. Service was very friendly. We liked the way the waiters called out the orders to the kitchen. Mostly full of tourists, like us.

Lovely place with good food. Unfortunately they added Euro15 to our bill last year "by accident". Luckily we spotted it. Decided to try again this year and the same happened. They added an extra bottle of wine for Euro 16. We also saw they make another "mistake" with another couple. SO CHECK YOUR BILL CAREFULLY - it is no mistake.

Quirky inside with a nice little bar. We sat outside on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Mussels were great but the other tapas we ordered were average, deep fried (overcooked) calamari and a massive heap of deep fried pescaditos (small fish). Was a little disappointed after reading the other reviews online....expected a bit more quality, especially as the food isn't cheap!... More

We had some very good tapas in this local bar, together with a bottle of "tinto della casa" which was surprisingly good for its price. Note the small boxes at the bottom of the bar, for throwing the empty "clochinas". You won't be disappointed when visiting this place.

On a strip filled with tourist traps and second-rate eateries, this one is the real deal. Local flavor, both in atmosphere and food. Don't miss the clochinas (small mussels) when they're in season. Go and you'll have fun, on a budget.

Fantastic place where you eat like a real, a native Spaniard. Brilliant taste of each dish, literally everything that you can order to eat. I liked this place from the moment I got there. Great atmosphere, screaming bartenders and of course the shells under the bar. I will return and will certainly recommend it to any traveler.
