Throughly enjoyed this place . It is a large family style room with live music on Sunday when we were there. The owner whose name I believe was Vincent has a wonderful booming voice and joins the band on stage . He also makes a point to introduce himself to each table. If it is your birthday everyone will get... More

Had a late lunch with family and friends. A great restaurant with great food, music and an owner/host. The owner made it a point of stopping and talking to each table, showing how to drink wine from a Bota Bag and making sure everyone was having a good time. He even sang on stage. Not cheap but no good restaurant... More

Was here for an anniversary of love with my girlfriend. We had made reservations, because we were told it gets crowded. We got there at 7pm and there wasn't much people all of a sudden it was full. There was a guitarist playing live some soft music. The waiter was very helpful with our decision on the food. The food... More

If you are looking for a place where the way they treat you is more important than quality/price ratio, this is the place for you. We paid US$100 for a paella, some tapas and non alcohol drinks for two. Actually, an overprized place where as a result of the high prices is used to impress people without the resources to... More

We (4) celebrated a birthday at La Lluna de Valencia and were happily surprised (which is an understatement!) by the personal attention which we received from Vicente, the owner. The typical Valencia food was excellent, the wines superb (yet a bit pricey) and the atmosphere (music, entertainment from Vicente) very positively different from any other place we know in the...

We came back to La Lluna de Valencia to celebrate my son's birthday. It is his favorite place. Therefore, we ordered a whole table to tapas, plus my son's favorite the rabbit of the house. Every dish was beautiful, flavorful and worth eating, from the Pappas Bravas to the sardines. The family who owns the restaurant are always friendly and... More

We have been there many times and it is always a great place. For lunch in Sundays they have a flamenco show that is great. The service is excellent, the food is great and the sangría is the best. The only thing that they can improve is the attention to kids: maybe a playground or crayons to paint.

Been here three times. Love it. Great paella. The owner comes around and squirts wine into your mouth from a boata bag. Pleasing ambience. Decent prices. Looking forward to another visit to this fine restaurant.
