We arrived here without a reservation and they managed to fit us in. We were delighted as the food was fantastic and great value. The staff are very friendly. I had the cod which was massive and so nice. Great place and must if in albuferia. Make a booking to avoid disappointment.

Food great, recommend half rack of ribs for starters. Cod for main dinner they don't have plates big enough to carry it, massive portion, lovely and fresh with melt in the mouth batter.
