This place is the local's hidden treasure. It is 3kms outside Valencia city on the northside, near the road to Barcelona. It is an old farmhouse turned into a restaurant where you can eat some of the best food the city has to offer. The price is amazingly competitive. There are little tourists around. Fantastic for what Valencia is most... More

Cute place in the middle of, what seems to be, no where. El Famós is obviously a place where Valencians go to get away from tourists and eat their preferred paella. We found it just leaving Malvarrosa and figured why not just see what it looks like.... no regrets!!!! Service: very friendly and quick Price: reasonable for paella, but they... More

This paella is made in wood oven so it takes 1 hour and 30 minuts to prepare. So either you book in time or you have to wait as we did. The sangria was nice both white and red.

If you are in Valencia and want to try a good Paella (Paellas are only for lunch) you have to go to this place. Very good wine selection, more then 200, and also the price is very fair. If you have a car you can park there very easy, as it is a bit outside of Valencia but not too... More

This is a restaurant that we can see from our flat, yet we had never visited. From the outside it does not look very exciting, nor for that matter does the inside, but the food was very good. A friend recommended it for paella as being the best in the area, but they will not do paella for two on... More

Spain and Catalon region is know for one thing, and that is paella - dish make you lick your fingers after you finished eating. This small place hidden in the outskirts and in shades of Valencia, serves you with one of the best paella you can have. I recommend going there around 14:00, since thats the time when most spanish... More

To begin, there was no option of one glass of wine or champagne. The bottle of sauvignon we ordered upon recommendation (no pretasting offered) was one of or the worst I ever had in a restaurant. Appetizers were forgettable and staff was nervous and almost yelling at each other, however, friendly to us. The fried squid had a nice texture... More

I have eaten at this restaurant around 5 times now. Every time the food has been outstanding. The Pealla remains the best in Valencia and the service is great. If your in Valencia go here or you have missed out.

I spent 4 days in Valencia and had 4 Paella meals in 4 different places, one including in the banquet of a conference. Among them, El Famos serves the best Paella to me. We went there around 2pm. We were the first customers. By when we had appetizer, there came three more groups. It seemed to be a famous restaurant... More

I've been eating rice/fideua in Valencia for 10 years, and aside from my relative señor Alfonso, this place has the best rice/fideau. Prepared a leña, or over a wood fire, the smoky flavor penetrates the rice/fideua. They prepare it here in the traditional way, with a touch of fresh rosemary at the end. The tapas/raciones here are also at a... More
