This is one of the worst restaurants I have been to anywhere. It is in a pleasant location near the beach but otherwise has no redeeming features. The food (two types of paella, although to the extent that they tasted of anything they tasted much the same) was very mediocre. There seemed to be an attempt to put as little... More

Wow, after 10 minutes most of the tables were occupied. We took the menu for 49 euro's and it was outstanding! Different starters, the one better than the other. The maincourse was paella and again tastefull. Drinks , desserts and coffee were included.

Went here for dinner, made a reservation earlier that day as we heard it gets very busy. Had the croquettes to start with yhe garlic prawns which were delicious. Shared the pepica paella with a jug of sangria and had to go for a walk on the prom afterwards as we were so full. Really enjoyed the meal

We went in not long after they opened and there were maybe about 20 people already in. The staff were rude. We decided that as the food good so we would give it another try. At the end lovely meal of Veal and Swordfish, portions very generous. A jug of sangria came very well. Not bad.

A very good restaurant if you want to have a good paella and a nice breeze from the sea. We were late 30 minutes from the time of our reservation and though the restaurant was packed they did not give our table. This counts a lot in good restaurants. To place is really big like some big sea restaurants in... More

Surrounded by unbearably low quality, over priced, cheap bars and restaurants, La Pepica really stands out from the crowd. We spontaneously visited it for a quick lunch, looking for a good paella and we really hit the jackpot! Professional service, amazing location (a stone's throw away from the sea) and, for the quality of the food, honest prices!

The best and most classic Valencian food. Right in the beach, tiled old fashion restaurant, typical Valencian cuisine, made with fresh and quality ingredients. Unhurried meals. Polite servers. They been around for a loooooooong time, they have fed some of the most important VIPs from all over the world and it is because they absolutely know what they are doing.... More

This place deserves all the amazing reviews! The paella was the best I've ever tasted. The service was also amazing, all the staff are very cheery and service was very efficient. The place runs is a well oiled machine and runs like clockwork.

Loved the experience at La Pepica, from the history of the restaurant to their delicious Paella Valenciana. The place is huge, and it seemed to be a mix of locals and tourists when we visited. I'd definitely recommend for an authentic paella experience.
