It was Valentine's Day evening and we hadn't got a reservation but there was no problem, they changed the table setting and sat us down. Instead of a wine list, you choose your bottle from the laden shelves on the way in- we had a Jumilla which was really excellent and only €17 and made my husband very happy and... More

Very nice restaurant close to Plaza del Ayuntamiento. Not too big, not noisy, with nice decorations. The staff is extremely helpful and gave us plenty of advice: we had a very pleasant dinner!

We had a wonderful meal here Saturday evening, celebrating our wedding anniversary. With so many restaurants to choose from in Valencia, I'm glad we chose this one. The room is charming and eclectic. Every table was reserved - and we were the only ones there at 8.30pm - we forgot that people eat later in the city! There are a... More

The restaurant was fully booked for lunch, but we could wait outside with a drink at the tables they have there. Great service. The wine you choose from a shelf where all wines are exhibited with their price. Food is typical but of a very high quality. Highly recommended.

It's warm, it's friendly, it's professional and it's spanish comfort food at its very best. The feeling when you leave the table after a meal is what matters. The feeling that you have been taken care of, in the very best manner. El Encuentro gave us that feeling. We had some small starters with chistorra sausage and some absolutely sensational... More

My fiancee and I found El Encuentro restaurant through TripAvisor and decided to give it a shot, after a day of sightseeing in Valencia last September. We saw the nicely set tables from the outside and we were standing there trying to establish if it was ok to go in dressed the way we were (in shorts and flip-flops) and... More

Did you know that the best source of good restaurant recommendations (apart from Tripadvisor) can be obtained from local pharmacists. We asked one. We were directed to "El Encuentro". At the end we loved: El Encuentro for its homemade but expertly done dishes at reasonable prices. The very attentive Service provided by Angel and Cristobal, we loved the very nice... More
