Such a great café! We stopped here for a drink after a long walk exploring the city and enjoyed a couple of cocktails surrounded by books and other interesting decor while others were simply there to read or grab a coffee with friends. Funky toilets...too. Definitely worth a stop or detour to find this place!More

Had lunch here, the veal cheek in white wine and roasted potatoes and the pastrami sandwich...both were quite good...setvice was good as well! Prices are very reasonable and the portions are large! Good lunch option with a cool ambiance.

A stroll around Valencia one lazy Sunday morning in June led us to this place. It's the perfect spot to unwind, the food was great and the staff very friendly. There's a boho 'vibe' to the place but it doesn't try to be too cool...or trendy. There were very few books in English although that's not a complaint, just something to make a note of before you go if you're looking to buy a book. Overall a very pleasant experience...I hope to return again one day.More

The worst food I have eaten for many years. We paid more than in most places in Valencia and left most of it. ‘Taco’s that had a weird deep fried thick inedible shell, filled with what looked like the contents of a tin of beans....Truly dreadful food thrown together by people who know nothing about and do not care about food.More

Ubik is a 1969 science fiction novel and is described it as "a deeply unsettling existential horror story. Thankfully that didnt mirror our visit, it was just a quirky cafe laid out like a small public library (where you can get drunk!!) Phew. Quite a...boho feel and very relaxed. Went in a couple of times and it was really busy which is always a good sign. Staff friendly and drinks fairly priced - decent recommendation for a decent bar in Valencia. Check it out as something a bit different.More

Great wine, friendly service and a chilled atmosphere. I guess it’s good for grabbing a bite too, but I went there for the wine, olives and the peacefulness.

Service is aggressive and slow. If you ask why the service is slow you will very probably be asked not to return. This is evidenced in other complaints listed and the owners response.

A very interesting book cafe/restaurant in the hip area of Ruzafa (definitely worth a walk around the area)! Lots of new and second hand books, covering a wide range of subjects! Nice spanish food also, and friendly service! Try the Tyris craft beer, amazing!

We had a great dinner here! Main dish between 8€-14€. The bio burger and the veggie dish with eggplant were really delicious. And the dishes even look like they are served in a fancy restaurant. If you love great food for an affordable price, this...is the place to be.More
