We were visiting Valencia and the town was full of carnival atmosphere and we were hungry so picked the first place we saw. They helped seat us in the shade and the food and service was OK it filled a spot but nothing special at just over 25 euros per head it was the location that made it.

Lesson learned, check trip advisor before crossing a restaurant threshold! Service was slow and unresponsive, my wife's starter arrived 10 mins before mine (!) was rubbery calamari and when mine arrived was very over cooked small fried fish. We cancelled our main and left as soon as possible!

This restaurant is pleasantly located, just slightly off the Plaza de la Virgen close to a quiet garden. I stopped here for dinner and i was the first diner even though some other establishments in the main plaza were already quite busy. I ordered choricitos (very spicy sausages) for starter and dorada (gilt head bream) as a main course. The... More

We had lunch here and went for the tapas. It wasn't very good at all. The worst dish was the hellfire sausages (as it was translated). They were just huge cuts of chorizo swimming in oil. There must have been about 15 of them. Another shame was the street hawkers and 'performers' who constantly bugged each table. Once such person... More

Ordinary food, ordinary service, ordinary review. Nothing spectacular, nothing wow, nothing to remember. The prices are...ordinary, of course.

We had a quick bite in one evening while in the first days in Valencia. We had the tapas menu - decent, but some of the things seemed to be deep frozen. The dorada was quite good, fresh. Proper service, though.

The food and the price were excellent but my story is special for even a better reason. I forgot my iphone cable and charger. They saved it for me for almost 6 weeks. I got it back and enjoyed an excellent meal once again. Great staff!!!!

We found this restaurant one evening after a long day walking round Valencia, a very good find. We opted for the set menu which gave 3 tapas as starters followed by a Paella. We do not eat meat and asked if we could change 1 of the tapas to suit us, this was done with no trouble and great suggestions... More
