Been here a few times with family and friends and the paella has been incredible each time. Slightly pricey but worth it!

Valencia is the home of Paella. There aren't that many places where you would find an excellent variety of Paellas and rices, all typical of the region. If you want to add quality of food to service, tradition and scenery (it is right at the Las Arenas beach) then don't think again. This will be an experience you will never... More

We went on the basis of TA reviews and in a way they are all right from 1 to 5! It feels authentic, the paella and fried fish is great, but the service is a bit chaotic and some of our dishes were lukewarm at best.

Had a long walk in the sun down to the quayside and beach front, whilst there we stopped off at Le Pepica on the recommendation of a friend. It did not disappoint. Sat outside with views of the Med, the food was freshly prepared, and very tasty, Octopus was delicious and the Paella also. All in all worth the walk... More

We came here on a Friday and the restaurant was packed but we were lucky enough to get the last table outside in the terrace. This restaurant has been here for 120 years and is well known in the area. We had a starter of croquettes and garlic bread with tomato. Very nice. For the main we came with one... More
