Of all the paella houses here in the city of Paella, we have found this beautiful spot in front of a canal for our cravings. The servcie is always efficient and nothing is ever too diffcicult. The owner´s presence is always a pleasure as he plays an excellent host. The duck & chicken paella is our favorite, the local eel dish Ali Pebre is excellent and a must! You can even take a canoe around the surrounding lake after lunch.

we were recommended by the team at Appetite to this out of the city traditional restaurant. It is a 25euro taxi ride but well worth it as the restaurant was surrounded in rice fields and we had a table right by their private river. The staff spoke good English and was very hospitable. But the paella Valencian with duck, chicken and rabbit was truly delicious! Make an effort to come here as it is a treat away from touristy places.

This restaurant is on the edge of El Palmar a small village in the Albufera in Vallencia. It is difficult to find, and you may well, as we did, have to ask someone in the town the way

The paella is as you would both hope and expect excellent.We live in Spain, have eaten many paellas, and found this restaurant really good. The owner is, to say the least, enthusiastic, and will recommend starters and main courses. We had cod croquettes, prawns and tomatoes as separate tapas, then the paella marisco for 4. With the coffee came three "frozen" bottles of mistel (the local sweet wine), the local firewater and the local firewater plus herbs

The service was from the owner and two very friendly waiters. The restaurant looks out over a small canal off the lake.

Overall it is a "Spanish" rather than a "tourist" restaurant, and serves excellent local food. The Albufera is worth a visit, and if you visit the Albufera, then do take lunch here

Finally I would point out that this restaurant is Spanish so they take lunch orders from 13.30 to 16.00 rather than Northern European hours

Eating a very good paella just by the rice fields of the Albufera Natural Park! Amazing experience! A little expensive, but worth it.

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.
