We were not disappointed with our first authentic Paella experience, great starters as well - definitely recommend a visit if you're visiting Valencia!

Ate the seafood paella which was delicious! The paella takes time to prepare so don't expect to receive your paella within five minutes after ordering. Instead keep yourself busy with a glass of red wine and the complentary amuse and olives while you wait. I promise it's worth the wait, proper Valencian food! 10/10

Expensive - pretencious - Paella Valenciana poorly tasting. Possibly other paellas should be better, but I dont feel to be willing to try again this place in future trips to Valencia. In sommary: a big deception

Best paella in Valencia. Friendly staff. As well as paella they also serve a range of soft rice dishes. Deserts were excellent. They also have a good wine list.It is very popular so one needs to book.

We reserved a table in this restaurant, after reading the good reviews. The food was good (tasty octopus and paella, even if little bit too salty), but we were disappointed by the service: we knew the table was available just until 10 pm, but we did not expect to be told to go out in rude manners while still finishing...

What can I say? Best paella ever. And we are no strangers to paella as we frequent Spain. Service is excellent, enough choice for vegetarians and cost ambiance.

First off, these guys had a gesture to take us without reservation. The place is nice and classy and the complementary tapas and free wood spoon was a surprise! Have ordered Croquetas de Jamón which was huge and indeed the most delicious have ever tried. The Valencias Paella was good also, however I'll stick with Seafood one. They deserve a... More

One of the best places I have ever been to! So polite staff, very helpful and good english skills. Food - Paella Valenciana and squids were gorgeous. It was a quintessence of the Spanish cuisine. Must go place when you are in Valencia.

We went to Restaurant Canela on the recommendation of our Spanish host. We arrived relatively early by Spanish standards (1.45) on the Saturday before Christmas Day without a reservation but were able to get a table for 3, although the restaurant became quite full soon after. While we waited for our Paella Valenciana to be prepared we had a delicious... More
