Fun & Elaborate Tapas Dinner

Canalla Bistro Restaurant – 8.30 pm – 11.30 pm  (Located in Ruzafa)

By Valencian Chef – Ricard Camarena (who, among other restaurants, has a Michelin-starred restaurant). A very cool modern setting, but pretty casual. And the waiters know what they are doing!

Ricard uses the best local products to create small and delicious fusion cuisine bites at this bar: international tapas extravaganza! Tacos, baos, curries… Colorful and very flavorful. The desserts are spectacular, too!

The owners Isa and Oscar have been in the restaurant industry for many years. At the beginning of 2016 they decided to open a tavern of their own, not far from their home (and they have tastefully decorated the place themselves…).

Both are passionate about the high quality local Spanish products such as the best Iberian ham, the Denominación de Orígen (Spain’s product geographical certification of foods and drinks) pungent cheeses, top Spanish wines from all over the country, and go on trips to other regions to bring back the best of the best to their food loving clientele.

Oscar is a professional ham carver (and lover!). So if you are looking for the best jamón for your dinner in Valencia on Sunday, make sure to check his place out!

As he cuts jamón in front of the guests, by the label color on the pig’s leg they know exactly the kind of ham they are getting (for example, the black label corresponds to the 100% Iberian acorn fed ham).

If you love Spanish staple cold cuts and vino, you will not regret coming here.

Classic Service & A Classic Sunday Cocktail

Cerveceria Acuarium – open all day (Located in L’Eixample)

There is only a handful of restaurants in Valencia that have been around for many decades and still keep the original interior decor. Welcome to 1957!

Upon entering find the doors of the cinema theater that was here before the restaurant opened up, next to the staircase. The waiters are dressed in classic uniforms. You cannot not fall in love with this place!

What to have: order seafood tapas such as sepia (squid), or go for bocata de tortilla (a bread roll with Spanish tortilla inside),  or the omnipresent tapas ensaladilla rusa (potato mayonnaise salad with tuna). Enjoy one of the alcoholic cocktails a la carta. Watch your cocktail made by an expert at the bar. Chin chin!

Gran Via del Marqués del Túria, 57.
