Valencia Paella

We stopped in during our search for Paella in Valencia after our cruise ship tour and we were not disappointed. The appetizers and seafood paella from the set menu were very good. All the food was flavorful and seemed to be fresh. We had no problem with the service or the food or the wine... read more

I am local and I was having a business dinner with some foreigners’ colleagues, the food was in general of very poor quality, especially the cuttlefish (sepia) which was simply not eatable, the drinks – which were not included in the menu - were expensive e.g. 4 euros for a cup of (bad) sangria. The staff tried to be amusing,... More

There is SO MUCH amazing, good quality food at affordable prices in Valencia. Do not waste your time on this one, not matter how cute you find that orange tree garden in front of it!

An authentic tourist trap. Expensive, untasty food, not at all generous sangria. You have been warned

It took ages to get the food. Coincidentally it was ready at the moment I got eyecontact with the waiter. When the food arrived it was ok at best, however, it was not very much food, and I left the restaurant feeling hungry. In total I would not go here, it's not much more than tourist trap.

Poor, if any, service. Forgot our order. They really have no clue about how to treat either customers or food. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else.

I give this restaurant one star for two reasons 1) TripAdvisor doesn't let me give it 0 and 2) the waiter was worth a star on his own for entertainment value. He gave us the usual spiel about the 'special offer' available only to us and to keep it hush-hush from his boss but somehow forgot to cover up the... More

After a long cab ride from cruise boat, we decided on this one, with out door seating. All we wanted was paella but waiter wanted us to have the SET piece lunch, which came with two starters. The starters ended up being better than the Paella, they were some Spanish salad, and a whole frying pan of bacon and eggs... More
