Once Ruzafa in Valencia used to be one of the best hidden secrets - nowadays a trendy part of upcoming Valencia with a lot of bars, restaurants and shops. We were lucky because El Rus seems to be the place to be... No reservations but after 5 minutes we got a small table outside on the street. A lot of... More

Great fillings- the hot aubergine in omelette with iberico ham, cheese and tomato is fantastic, ditto chicken and beetroot...... so much choice and on two visits... More

Great place to have dinner. Nice spot; terrace on the corner of the street. Don't expect any advanced main dishes, most of the menu consists of (good filled) baguettes and salads (and some starters and deserts). We really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the friendly staff, even though they were really busy. Reasonable prices!

To say Ruzafa, the fashion area in Valencia, is to say El Rus. Quick service with a really good chart of salads, bocadillos and desserts

I've been here a few times with friends when visiting for the MotoGP. The staff are a real mixed bag so it's actually quite amusing. You will get good reasonably priced food and drink and good service. My only criticism would be that the menu is very bread based but don't let that put you off. Well worth a visit... More

This was a lovely cheapish place right near our lodging and was open late. There's an English menu and I'd suggest the starters rather than sandwiches. The patatas bravas were delicious but the taste sensation was brie with honey and avocado . lots of Spanish people in a cool area. Great atmosphere on a Monday.

We found this place walking streets looking for dinner. Menu is sandwiches, salads, some appetizers but plenty of choices. We ordered the baked brie with jellied peppers - EXCELLENT!!!! For dinner - I had smoked cod, egg and tomato sandwich and son had jambon and grilled pork sandwich - both were tasty and filling. My wife had the buffalo mozzarella... More

Informal location, this was on the way towards our hotel, a busy crossroads with cafés & restaurants on all corners. Full of locals eating great value food & drinking beers & wine. I had the house burger & it was brilliant so tasty. Great staff as well. I think the waitress enjoyed hearing my terrible Spanish! Ha.

A busy place filled with local people. Best to visit at night when the weather is good. Great atmosphere.

Located at the corner of two streets in Russafa, with a big outdoor sitting area. Inside is good too. I've been there several times, the sandwiches are available in a huge variety of breads and flavors (some of them quite original and delicious !), portions and prices are fair. A good place!
