Description: Come and savour mediterranean fusion food in this centrally located and highly recommended restaurant in Valencia's historical Barrio del Carmen. Just a few metres from the cathedral square, this restaurant is a relaxing retreat after a morning of sightseeing. Stephen Anderson heads the friendly English speaking team. Eat alfresco or in the modern, comfortable, designer interior. The daily lunchtime menu is excellent value for money and the a la carte is an opportunity to try the gastronomic offer of one of Valencia's best fine dining restaurants.

“nice tasting menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great food, nice service, nice place and well located nearby the cathedral.
very friendly chef who personally came to ask if the meal had tasted
it was a nice conversation with a asian-roots chef who lives for 16 years in Valencia, who has followed his heart from england to spain after working as a teacher....good job man!!

“Was expecting more!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant with high expectations after reading so much positive reviews. I can only say it's good but nothing special.

“good - ok - bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Given the previous ratings we were expecting top food and top service...
We had the tasting menu, accompanied by "matching" wine...
good: starter with terrine of foie with pistachios (presentation & taste); matching wine however not matching (an off dry Riesling or Sauternes would have been the right choice)
good: Burmese style suckling pig with celeriac puree
good: Mandarin sorbet with Cava, however served after main dish rather than to clean the pallets after fish courses
ok: lobster ravioli (taste); dough too thick; shell pieces in the ravioli
ok: grilled risotto with mushrooms, Iberian pork and Parmesan cheese broth
ok: chocolate brownie
bad: fish of the day: one overcooked, one raw, plate dirty and cold, sequence of serving wrong and not according to menu; sent back to the kitchen it came back straight from the microwave...
four white wines accompanying the food is too much, one lighter red would have been preferred.
service ok, in the beginning understaffed.
would I go back? maybe not.

“One of my all time favourites!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have been coming to Seu Xerea ever since it first opened. At the time it was one of a kind and offered something very different to the more traditional Spanish restaurants. Since then others have followed but no-one (in my opinion) has bettered it. Though I don't get to Valencia as much as I'd like these days, I always make a point of having dinner here at least once. The menu changes regularly and is always top notch. Service and atmosphere cannot be faulted either. Not the cheapest, but a very special experience and you ultimately get what you pay for. It still represents excellent value compared to a similar standard establishment in London.

“Beautifully presented food and top service in a pretty location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This restaurant really understands how to make an evening with good food into an evening memorable for great service too, and the surroundings and wine list are up to the quality of the food and service too. Well-done modern decor, moderate noise level, and an interesting and varied menu really round it out. Everything was great, and some of the dishes got a 'wow, this is really interesting' as well. Try it!
