To start with: we have been to this place 2 times during 3 days trip!
Luckily we researched well where to eat real paella in Valencia and just by chance found Levante! Came out that that night in September was there first opening for dinner, because usually locals eat paella during lunch or on Sunday, not for dinner! This was surprising fact, though it was clear that this place is oriented for business clientele during lunch, so we were the first couple to experience the dinner there and of course, we were eager to eat paella, not caring much about habits of Valencians. Paella was delicious, not too fat, soft and juicy rabbit meat, perfect rice, not forgetting that the lima beans used for it were grown on their personal garden as many other components they add to the dishes! Croquetes, starter with Valencian tomatoes, desserts and wine were marvellous as well! By the way they have own wine shop at the territory of the restaurant and sell by bottle to take away representing good wine selection.
An important fact: this is family restaurant, quite new in Valencia, but another one with the same name has being existed for a long time outside of Valencia! The desserts are made by “mother-owner”, all the stuff is family friendly demonstrating good knowledge of how to serve a client.
In other words, nothing to complain, the prices seem to be even cheap when knowing for what you pay and trying the dish!
Our second visit was on Sunday, when disappointed with food in the historical center of Valencia, we decided to come back there and try their new menu for dinner (so now they work evenings of Friday and Saturday). So while Spanish families were eating traditional Sunday paella we ordered this menu for 20 euros which included 4 starters, main dish, coffee or dessert! All was excellent: special recipe guacamole, some sort of foie gras served with mandarina jam, scrambled eggs with jamon and potatoes, vegetables in tempura…And the star of our lunch: ribs served on rosemary with green paprika and potatoes! Every single ingredient was perfect, potatoes really tasted like grown in the garden without chemicals, same I can say about all the vegetables.
The ratio price/quality is really impressive in this place.
I strongly recommend dedicating some hours to the visit of this place when being in Valencia and have great local food experience! Yes you would have to go out of touristic zone but it is worth it.
