Tucked away in a quiet square, Tapineria was a good choice. All food was excellent except the crumbed lamb cutlets which were overcooked and frankly inedible. The croquettes were superb. Worth a go.

Nice, tucked away restaurant on a very small square with orange trees. Apparently, this place won some prices and is recommended by TripAdvisor. But, to be honest, it wasn't that great. We had some spaghetti and wolffish. Not bad, not super good. Just average. That's what I would call this restaurant.

Great food, great location and good atmosphere. Very nice to have lunch or dinner! Friendly personnel. Paella is definitely recommended

I had the menú del día. I selected the salad and paella. Both were good but nothing to write home about. I did enjoy the outdoor seating and the delightful service. I would go back for that!

Great little spot nestled in a little square just outside of the Cathedral. Wonderful menu, fresh ingredients, great wait staff.

Hidden in a quiet little courtyard off Plaza de la Reina you will find this little restaurant with great food and service at very reasonable prices. We dropped in for an afternoon wine and returned for dinner under the orange trees which grow over the tables. They have a 12euro lunch menu and a very good range of tasty tapas.... More

First time in Valencia. Stumbled across this gem of a restaurant. Great tapas , reasonable price and better value than the restaurants we experienced in the main square (la plaza de la Reina). Friendly staff, cosmopolitan atmosphere, worth checking out if you visit Valencia.

For only 12 euro's a good tastefull menu. I had the pig cheaks and they were fine. Try the sangria, only here you taste the real spanish one. And of course the service was in spanish, the people who run the place are locals.

Ate here a couple of years ago and was keen to try again as the experience was excellent. Clear to see that they are living on a reputation which they simply no longer deserve. Dry, re-heated paella, no effort made at all in bland and cheap ingredients of starter and dessert, and service more than cold... A real disappointment!!

Jo and I really enjoyed our lunch in the corner of this square on a beautiful November Monday. I'd say the food is traditional Valencian, well cooked with good service and at a very reasonable price. That makes it excellent in my book.

Thank John E
