This is an Awesome sea food restaurant. We ordered the "Asopado de Mariscos"... Amazing! I would give this restaurant 5 start but the lack of waiters and missing the "arepas fritas" from the bread service in a restaurant as expensive as this is disappointing.

Marchica has always been the best restaurant in Valencia. The parrillas mar y Tierra is the best in this restaurant and the sangria is wonderful. It is the best option in Valencia if you want to eat Mediterranean food.

Here you can find one of the best seafood in Valencia. Try grilled sardines and ceviche de camarones as starters. Ask for the fish of the day and order a nice "churrasco de pescado". Arroz a la marinera and asopado de mariscos are very good as well. The only criticism are the sides.....they offer only steamed vegetables, cooked or mashed... More
