RESTAURANTS

CASA MONTAÑA

Good classic tapas and wine selection. Here we had a feast of dishes that were almost exclusively popped out of cans, jars and barrels. Every type of preserved fish, potted meat and pickled vegetable shines here – and together they make a spot-on meal.

CASA ROBERTO

Considered one of the best restaurants for Paella in Valencia. We particularly loved the vegetable paella.

EL ALBERO ANDALUZ TAPAS BAR

Always busy tapas bar in Valencia, specializing in Andalucían food. Go for the shrimp cakes and really good pata negra.

TASCA ANGEL

Tiny little spot (as in too tiny for chairs or stools), but great for sardines, sea snails and other funky ocean food.

CENTRAL BAR

Located in the market, Central Bar is the perfect place to grab a drink and enjoy great tapas before heading home for dinner. The salted cod croquettes and calamari a la plancha we had were fantastic.

LA COMISARIA

A modern tapas restaurant with Asian influence, La Comisaria was a treat. It was interesting to see how the chef combined Asian cuisine with Spanish tapas.

WINERIES

BODEGAS HISPANO SUIZAS

A favorite for us to visit! Try one of the only Pinot Noirs produced in Spain (and it’s really amazing) plus some of the coolest small production Cavas. There is a great patio for dining in the vineyards, as well lovely guest rooms to stay the night. We are famous for lounging in the Egyptian cotton bathrobes while drinking the remaining Cava after dinner!

BODEGAS MUSTIGUILLO

This winery is credited for “saving” the Bobal varietal, and makes some very earthy and robust wines from this grape. A gorgeous property to visit, and prepares one of the most authentic paellas for lunch after the winery tour.
