We went for the paella valenciana and it was delicious. We arrived a little before 2 pm and were seated immediately at a table facing the beach. The atmosphere was unhurried and we lingered over delicious starters (ensalada valenciana and garlic prawns) followed by 2 generous pans of paella. Loved the paella valeciana. It was quite delicious with generous portions... More

food plonked on the table, average food at that, it's clear this restaurant now relies on its name and not the quality of food or service. Not pleased with our experience, over cooked paella - really wasn't good at all.

I was recommended by a friend to go here and it didn't disappoint. We ordered 3 entrees (small fish, calamari and garlic prawns), and the mixed paella. The food was good, particularly the small fish and paella. It's a bit pricey but I think it's worth it. Further, their service is very very good.

We were recommended this restaurant from a lot of people; taxi drivers, locals. We decided to go to see what the hype was about and while the food was good it was a little pricier than other places. While I did enjoy the food I noticed they had burned our chicken paella so the base of the pan was extremely... More

We dined at this historic restaurant located at the seafront, on the advice of friends who have lived for about a year in Valencia. The venue is widely reported in all the guides, nonetheless it is also very popular with the locals, and it’s no coincidence. My effective rating would be 3,5. We sat inside as it was a bit... More

We reached there around 14:00, hoping that they were still serving lunch. I couldn't believe the size of the restaurant. It was massive. It's more than 100 year old restaurant. We... More
