Description: Come into the world at the stoves, Alejandro del Toro belongs to the fourth generation of a family tradition of hospitality. Born in 1973 in the seaside neighborhood of Cabanyal of Valencia, flavorings casseroles, stews and marinades emanating from the kitchen of his paternal grandmother, awoke in him an early interest in gastronomy. Over the years and experience in family restaurants, restlessness Alexander rose to discover his true vocation kitchen. Once decided the way forward, he completed his studies at the School of Tourism while performing practices in Valencia known establishments. Thus began a career that has led him to work with the best in Spain, among them Martin Berasategui and Manuel de la Osa. After this training period, in 2001 Alejandro returns to his hometown to shape the dream of his life: to open the doors of the restaurant that bears his name.

Alejandro's expertise in the kitchen looks like perfectly complemented by the work of Yaneth, maitre and excellent sommelier with recognition of the Valencian CDT. The work combines both getting the eating and drinking at their restaurant is a real treat for the senses.

Cuisine: Valencian cuisine updated and based on the best local products. Raw materials such as prawns Denia, Raff tomatoes, oranges, Morella truffles and many varieties that make up the so recognized and healthy Mediterranean diet.

Superb food and even better wine ( the owner is a sommelier) for a reasonable price. What a hidden gem in the heart of town. Never pretentious, the menues offer you a world of different tastes, displayed in a lovely fashion. Beautiful wines to match.
Must do this!

We visit this restaurant regularly. The food is innovative using local ingredients and extremely well presented. The wine list is comprehensive and well priced. The service is professional but extremely friendly - which 9s one of the many reasons we return again and again

4 starts out of 5 cause the Cod served was over salted (it is common in Spanish kitchen to use lot of salt).

Very nice interiors, perfect lighting and comfortable seating.

Professional attentive service with good wine selections.

Highlight of our LUNA tasting menu Veal Filled Ravioli in Turlupina Cream: fantastic!

Highly suggested.

Over our three days in Valencia we ate in various 1 Michelin star and 5 star restaurants. This was by far a head and shoulders above them all. Friendly welcoming staff, made you at home straight away. Simple affordable menus that played well above your expectations. Myself and my 3 friends are seasoned foodies and found a WOW factor in every one of the 6 courses. The sommelier made a choice of a local red wine that accompanied and complimented every course from pork through to fish. It cost 200 euros less than the Michelin star from the previous evening Thanks for making a great trip special. What a find.

I will return to this outstanding restaurant next time I am in Valencia with the same beautiful lady. They really know how to serve wine.the service is as good as it gets. The suckling pig I could recommend also the cod fish and merluza. Best to book a table or you may get in when you want.
