Classic and traditional valencian restaurant, real authentic paella!! It takes 40 min to cook it but it's all worth it, take the croquetas while waiting...delicious!! Great sangria as well!

Visited the restaurant with family. The paella valenciana is fantastic!! Best in town in my opinion, and prices are reasonable (for the quality you get).

Overall a very good... More

Great food! Bottom line you come for the rice here. Unfortunately I booked the same day and they were out of the Valencian Rice, but got one with Lobster (Bogavante) which was superb. We went after spending the morning at the beach which is quite nice. The rice take a while (~1hr) to prepare so ensure you calculate that into... More
