The four of us had an excellent seafood paella. Recommended by an restauranteur in Barcelona upon hearing of our travel direction and and serving us on a Barcelona food tour, she called her parents in Valencia to guide us. Just south and outside of Valencia, In the middle of the rice fields and national park, this was a very comfortable... More

Let´s start by saying that i´m from Valencia. L´Establiment is one of my favorites places when I want to have a good paella (on sundays, we usually eat paella weekends). I wanted to write a review since a long time, and have read the bad reviews before because it was a surprise for me to find a few bad reviews.... More

We loved the view to the canl eating amongst happy locals, intimate place tucked away from the other 1oo restautçrants in El Palmar, much nicer here and we were very well taken care of but the paella was the best we have had and I guess the most authentic compared to the city centre ones.

We were just at the place and after a 10 minute wait some guy comes over to tell us how they can't do anything for us without a reservation. He couldn't even give us their number to call and make reservations. Apparently their reputation for paella precedes them but their rudeness and their "I don't need your business attitude" is...

We were directed here by Appetite and it was well worth the drive, despite getting lost along the way in a maze of 200 paella restaurants. but when arrived, it was like a little osasis away from the crowd, in a beautiful spot infront of the canal by the rice fields that Valencia is famous for. We called ahead to... More

Having lived in Valencia for 12 years and knowing how pernickety the Valencians are when it comes to paella I have to say that the L'Establiment is the best restaurant to visit if you want to taste an authentic Valencian paella. The restaurant is a hiddden gem located in the rice fields and the road leading to the restaurant is... More

Had a beautiful meal with my family July 2013. Set amongst the paddy fields and canals around the Albufera lake just outside Valencia. Easy to find with sat nav. If you don't have sat nav use streetview to locate the sign to the restaurant at the far end of the village of El Palmar. They have lots of delicious starter... More

We took quite the hike to get to the "Best Paella in Spain" and had a great experience. Several Valencians recommended this restaurant to us. The staff was very nice, however we felt slightly overwhelmed at all the different kinds of Paella and our first server didn't offer much insight or recommendation...but it could also have been the language barrier....

L'Establiment is an exceptionally good restaurant, only open at lunchtimes and booking recommended, especially at weekends. It offers typical Valencian food cooked and presented to the highest standards. The owner has been there 35 years and this shows with his personal attention to every table. We chose several racions to share and then tucked into an excellent paella senoret.. The... More

Of all the paella houses here in the city of Paella, we have found this beautiful spot in front of a canal for our cravings. The servcie is always efficient and nothing is ever too diffcicult.
