Parents were in town so thought we would visit Valencia highest rated restaurant. Service spot on, sommelier excellent even if I did not enjoy 2 out of the 8 wines. Now for the food..absolute clear standout dish was oyster in Béarnaise sauce although calabaza starter shot was also a winner at the table. Let’s not forget how good was the champs & fresh oyster starter we decided to have. From Michelin perspective I have had meals that are better, unique & wow(eg a place like aklare & maybe ambience at Richard camerna is better).2 star is a big call from my experience but el poblet is still worth a visit if your in Valencia & the experience was well priced in my opinion at around €175pp....

Very courteous and correct service as expected from a Michelin starred restaurant. We had the “journey menu” and enjoyed all dishes, most of them trully original and memorable, using mostly local ingredients, perfect timing between all of them, you wont be disappointed!

The wine pairing was perfect and all staff were very friendly and enthusiastic to explain every item of the “jornada”, the chef also greeted every table at the end of the night, congratulations!

Sometimes Michelin stars are undeserved but here the award is absolutely right. The restaurant is stylishly decorated, with good-sized tables and a generous amount of room, and it has an elegance that makes you feel on form. The staff are professional and - above all - charming and friendly, and there is a whole brigade of them waiting to spring into action when needed. And the food is absolutely gorgeous! We had the tasting menu for 89€ and were not disappointed. The cooking is precise, clever and really tasty, and we thought the number of dishes and the portion sizes just right for an evening that lasted about three hours. The wine list has some fabulous wines but we chose a white and a red about the 40€ mark and they were superb. We could not fault this restaurant and had a throughly enjoyable time. Thank you!

Absolutely lovely afternoon at El Poblet. Delicious food, comfortable environment and friendly staff. More expensive than your average meal but worth every penny for the whole experience. A little luxury on holiday! Superb! Great!
