Have read of this little bar in Lonely Planet and other reviews we were disappointed. We had six meals whilst in Valencia and this was the least enjoyable. To be fair we sat outside so perhaps did not get the atmosphere of the restaurant. Service...More

Great place to sit outside in the street and eat simple foods washed down with a local cervaza or two. Watch the locals arrive on tractors park up by the boules pitches and argue who bowled closest to the jack, out door heaven

Also known as La Pilareta, this place is tiny. There are tables outside (much like every other restaurant in town), so you might be in luck there. But, you can always stand at the bar and chuck your mussel shells into the boxes at your...More

I've been here in 2013 and early 2015. Both times I enjoyed the atmosphere in this little restaurant. As a tourist I liked the fact that it seemed genuine and I could explore their menu with valencian specialties. The highlight were the mussels.

Having been there before and wanting to introduce this authentic tapas bar, we were very disappointed by the famous mussel tapas dish. The mussels were not freshly cooked, tasted reheated causing the mussels to be pasty. 8:30 pm perhaps too early or too late. Dommage....
