Carrer de Navellos, 11 is the address. Actually 3.5 out of 5

I had a city trip in Valencia in end April and popped into it by mistake. I actually intended to dine in the next next one where during the noon time I witnessed a lot of local young people. I am surprised that most reviews are negative. I hope people went to the same address as I did. As far... read more

My boyfriend and I went there tonight fir dinner; we were u fortunately fooled by the nice location and ambience of the place! We waited 25 minutes to be served, and over 45 minutes for the plates to be cleared-only after we requested! I got some tapas for dinner and my boyfriend got grilled steak. Everything was drenched in salt... More

We wanted to have a drink in the sun and decided to sit down on the terrace. The waiter wasn't very friendly, but okay.. The sangria was good but not special. After we got the bill, €16 for 2 drinks, we were shocked.

Had a menu del dia with Valencian Paella. Lovely meal. Had to rush the staff to get the bill as we were on a day trip and had to meet the tour guide. Food was very nice, with good service, and did not think it expensive at all. We found all the staff helpful and attentive.

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.
