Can’t believe one review said service was grumpy. We have been five times in so many days and Jesus and Esther are delightful! Jesus is always smiling. The sardines and mushrooms are beyond good. Going back tonight. Making myself hungry!

We went here following a recommendation and were somewhat surprised by how small it was and that there are no tables and chairs, just stools at the bar BUT the friendly service and quality of food was fabulous (particularly the sardines which are filleted, mushrooms...and pork kebabs). We left feeling as if we had had a true ‘local’ experience and would definitely go back. It is a place to have a quick supper not a leisurely meal.More

Was chucking it down as we were visiting gothic quarter so found this in a guide book. Very authentic Valencian and tasty too. Looks of locals coming in and out, place is really small so some standing room only. We were lucky to sit at...the bar. Owner really friendly, great tapas. The garlic mushrooms and padron peppers were my favourite. Can still taste the garlic!More

i like the tapas in this place but the other day i went with one friend an he charged us 8 euros more. Check the bill when you go there, because he is writing the bill by hand and for sure he is charging more...to the foreigners.More

A tiny bar serves the most amazing food. We were lucky enough to get 3 stools and enjoyed the fun experience of ordering dishes a few at a time. Cooked to order and served in seconds almost in front of you we enjoyed the fabled...sardines, luscious but slightly crisp round the edge liver, kidneys and mushrooms. The intimacy allows you to chat with fellow diners and with reasonable wine and beers it is a delight.More

A friend of mine recommended this place after living in Valencia, and I'm so glad she did. Tiny place that you might not think was worth a stop, but they are well known for having excellent sardines! The owner was so welcoming, and despite our...severe lack of Spanish, managed to order some delicious food! The menu is written on the wall in several languages, although Google translate wasn't able to help us translate back into Spanish to order on every occasion! Wine is just €1.50-2 a glass, and the pork skewer was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, would say 4 dishes are enough between 2. We were just being greedy ordering the 5th as everything had been so good!More

Husband & wife run this excellent tapas bar. It has fast become our favourite place for tapas in Valencia. Great atmosphere, food is all freshly cooked in front of you. Tried many dishes, sardines which are a house speciality, liver and padron peppers to name...a few. Good value for money & always receive a genuine warm welcome.More

Great location, friendly staff and good prices considering the area. Sea food looks good even tho we tried the “patatas bravas” and “cazuela de vegetales” Definitely recommend it!
