Lovely lunch at Carosel today. The staff were very friendly and the food was a real treat - quite a surprising find actually! We shared their prix-fixe lunch menu and loved it. Excellent tapas to start with, and a tasty Arroz Negro for the main.

We looked for Carosel after reading about them in the Lonely Planet, and they took some finding. The map isn't very helpful, and what few street names there were didn't match the actual signs well because the signs have (apparently) been changed to Catalan, and don't match the Spanish in the maps or on Google Maps. Anyway, Carosel was definitely worth getting a little lost for!

Highly recommend!!
The waitress is nice, the food is good, the deco is cute!!
We went here for lunch at 12:30 before it's opening hour (it opens 13:30 for lunch), the waitress is very nice, explains the menu to us and try to help us to get the lunch at 13:00, so we can catch up our schedule.
We had lunch menu of euro 15 with 5 very tasty tapas and a very yummy and big portion paella and dessert!

The restaurant is near central market, very easy to locate. But don't go too early. The lunch starts at 13:30, the dinner starts around 20:30.

We had the day's menu. Very good starters with amazing presentation. Rice "caldoso" tasty and a good dessert for 18 euros. Decoration is ok. Some seats didn't look very confortables, ours were good. We will go back.

We went during a very quiet and cold January evening and from our location we twisted and turned through the old city to one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere! All the dishes are creative and they each begin with ingridents of the highest freshest caliber. Each small dish exceeded the previous one, but the one that we all agreed was the best was the Crunchy Oxtails with roots puree - shredded intensely flavored boneless oxtail meat that was shaped, breaded and fried so that when you cracked the crust the warm delicious oxtails greeted you. We also had a pizza with spinach with black sausage and apple, two amazing but different artichocke courses and a bountiful mixed grill of organic vegetables with wild mushroom oil.

When we went, there was no fixed price menu as previously mentioned by other TripAdvisors and in the NY Times review. The menu items are listed in English, but don't do justice to what you will be served. Service was warm, very efficient and gracious. If we had more time in Valencia, we would have been back to try to rest of the menu offerings.

Great food (local kitchen with nice tapas and main dishes). Great service. Nice ambiente. What else do I need to say? This was the best restaurant I visited on my stay in Valencia.
