We ended up at La Ferradura based on some lukewarm recommendations from local Valencianos, but we wanted to eat at a palce on the beach. It was interesting that most Valencianos we talked to discouraged us from eating paella at the beach restaurants. My reaction to La Ferradura: a very modern glass-and-crystal restaurant that promises more than it delivers. More money spent on looks than the food. The prices weren’t necessarily high, but neither was the quality. The paellas weren’t bad, but neither did these live up to other paellas we’d had around Valencia. The salads – a bit pricey - were better than the paellas. While we didn’t have any appetizers, the prices seemed high. Our waiter was efficient, but rather cold and formal for lunch in a restaurant on a beach promenade. In short, a routine meal. Given the quality of restaurants in Valencia, no good reason to return. Perhaps La Ferradura was better in its days as a chiringuito. Two plusses: great views of the beach and a nice play area for the little ones.
