Immediately welcomed by Carlos in a full restaurant! We didn't make reservations, though. We ordered five tapas and all of them were superb. The baked camembert cheese on cassis, the bull's tail, the marinated squid, the cordon blue, the esgarraet ... Can't wait to go back. The rosado 'Al Vent', recommended by the entertaining but not disturbing Carlos, perfectly accompanied... More

We went with friends who had visited many times and were not disappointed! Tasty tapas, salads, ribs and tostadas. Croquetas as a veggie favourite! Creamy mushroom. Friendly staff.

We went here on Monday the 21st of August. During the bike tour that day our guide told us that Orio was the best restaurant for tapas, but it was only pinchos (not what we were looking for). Luckily I had wifi in the restaurant and based on the Tripadvisor reviews we decided to go here. Unfortunately the restaurant opened... More

Inside table on a warm evening as the few outside spots taken. Had a selection of tapas and a gin and tonic or two! Friendly efficient staff, kept the place buzzing! Not haute cuisine but a lovely evening. Hidden away a touch, but worth finding if in area.

We had such an enjoyable evening of tapas and drinks here. The waiter was super nice and attentive and the food was great. We ordered ribs, fried squid, salmorejo, patatas bravas, and pimientos padrón.

Nice place, friendly staff, authentic atmosphere downtown old town, lovely wine, average tapas. Large portions though (when size matters to you).

I have been coming to Bodeguilla del Gato for the past eight years when I am in Valencia for a working vacation. It is hands down the best tapas restaurant in Valencia. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is charming, and the staff is the friendliest in town. Carlos and Elvis are wonderful. They are one of the main reasons... More

We went to this place because a friend recommended it to us. It's hidden on a little street in the center of the old part of Valencia. All the "raciones" (a tapa but of bigger size) were wonderful. We tried "flamenquines" and I ate for the first time in my life "bull's tail stew". It was DELICIOUS. On Saturday night,... More
