Lovely food. Classy restaurant with only 11 tables. The lights seem a bit weird at first, but later you realise it makes the colours of the food come out really well. The food has great finesse and delicate flavours. It was prepared well and had...More

Definetely one of the worst restaurant I ever tried. Bad tastes for almost all the items of the menu. How could it have earned a Michelin star?More

We had the 9-course surprise menu and had the biggest disappointment of dining in a ?One-Michelin-Star restaurant. To begin with, the ambience was a bit odd, as pointed out by previous diners: a very occluded space with no window, an indoor glass casing with some...More

This was a disappointing evening. The room is rather odd - down a hallway to the back room space with no windows and draping sail cloth to separate tables. The service was variable - quick turnover between courses followed by long periods of no activity....More

The place and decor is really challenging. A hall at the back of the building , with no windows, strange lighting, and weird atmosphere. At this point we said , with this kind of set up the food must be amazing. Oh boy, how wrong...More

Riff is a very capable Michelin starred restaurant. It didn't blow our high expectations out of the water but fully satisfied them. And they were very high. A few service aspects that annoyed us - we asked for water, got one small bottle when others...More

Description
To be a professional chef is a magnificent thing. It is always a pleasure to be able to cook for people, for friends, family and for my children, who have been great fans as well as honest critics since they were small. I love to cook at home, to invite friends and to make a Spanish 'cocido', in my own style obviously, or spatzle, a recipe from the Black Forest, which reminds me of my grandmother who was a phenomenal cook and my grandfather who I still remember collecting lamb's lettuce from beneath he snow. I always like to know the person I am cooking for, to know something of their personality so I am better able to achieve the aim of making them happy through the food that I prepare. For that reason my restaurant is small. I enjoy going to the Central Market every morning and seeing the stallholders, my friends, chatting with them and feeling accepted as part of their world. I never cease to appreciate the architecture of the market building or the quality of produce throughout the changing seasons. Another extraordinary place is the auction at the port where I buy fresh fish. The buildings are ugly, almost third world, I hope that someday they realise the great potential of this part of our city, perhaps even open it up to tourists. Imagine a stroll between the boats, between the fishermen, watching as they unload boxes of the freshest possible fish! Que calidad! I cannot imagine doing anything else. I feel incredibly lucky to have found this profession. It sounds pretentious I know, but I am truly delighted to be able to dedicate myself to the cuisine of this region, with that produce, that quality, that tradition that I discover little by little, I cook Valencian food, but I cook MY Valencian food.
