Description: L'Establiment is a traditional Valencian food restaurant located in the Albufera National Park.
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Really worth the trip to/from Valencia in a cab (about 20 min, €25 each way). The food (traditional Valencian, paella, arroces, eel, great vegetables, ...) was excellent in quality and very well executed. The service couldn't have been better - attentive, funny, offering lots of suggestions and very friendly. It's situated almost at the south exit of El Palmar, so not easy to find (make sure you take the phone number for the restaurant and they will direct you there), but once there the restaurant is beautifully set against one of the Albufera canals. It has a small terrace by the canal where one can eat or have coffee afterwards. Heaven.
The meal was about €110 for two people, 3 courses each, wine, coffee and service all in. I thought it was good value, but of course that depends on how much you want to spend.

Great lunchtime restaurant in calm environment of the Albufera national park. Classic paella dishes, eels of course, and other local and seasonal culinary delights. Should not be missed for occasional visitors to the area, not cheap by any means, €40/per person, perhaps a little more, but well worth it.

If you want to savour an authentic tasty Valencian paella, this is the place. The restaurant itself is very nice and nicely decorated. If there's sun you can sea in the outside terrace and the view to the lagoon channel and rice field can be very nice.

So just rent a car and get yourself to explore this out of the beaten-track place!

Highly recommended restaurant. A bit hard to find, better ask locals for directions once in the village, but worth the effort. Staff is friendly - alas, not to be taken for granted is this part of the world ... - and food is excellent. What could you ask for more? Special location maybe? It's got that too, in the middle of a natural park which was the cradle of the paella. Our meal comprising of two starters, paella bogavante, white wine and coffee came to 38 Eur per head, well within the average price of a paella meal in Valencia. I definitely recommend this place.
