“The Best Paella in Valencia”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is a spectacular restaurant. You eat right on the mediterranean--directly across from the sea. The restaurant is gorgeous and spotless. Eating indoors surrounded by beautiful tiles, or out--under awnings and umbrellas, shaded from the sun, you will enjoy the best paella in Valencia. Every course is wonderful, from mussels (called clochinas in Valencia) to the succulent paella itself. Even the melon, for dessert, is outstanding. With wonderful service and excellent prices, Casa Navarro is located away from the tourist strip at the beach, in an area called Alboraya. Worth a cab ride (or a drive if you have a car). Easy to get back to town by calling for a cab--the restaurant will help you do this. I've eaten here many times and always think I've hit the jackpot. My Spanish family highly recommends this place--don't miss it!

“Rather disappointing”
Reviewed January 17, 2011

Casa Navarro is supposed to be part of Valencia local life but our paella was average and the service was slow and bordering on unfriendly. We tried Casa Carmela a week later and had a very different experience. Perfectly cooked paella and a delightful welcome. No question which establishment we will return to.

“Exceptional restaurant with incredible seating by the beach”
Reviewed October 22, 2010

Restaurant located in a former villa by the beach. It now has tables inside, in the closed off former garden, in a closed off balcony and outside in front of the villa. It is very popular with locals, so there´s no chance of getting one of the nicer tables at weekends unless you phone reasonably in advance. If you do, you can end up eating with the sea in the background.

Recently tried one of the chef´s suggestions: Paella with tuna loin and spring onions. It was delicious!
Try sharing a few of the starters, like the cod croquettes, griddled squid, the home made calamari, or the tomato with anchovies.
This has a huge reputation for rice in broth, for instance with lobster. I must have been here about fifty times and still have to taste a rice dish that I did not consider excellent.
