Where to eat well (suitable areas of restaurants serving the best value)
The historic center. Ciutat Vella is divided by five districts. Best Value eating areas are Carmen (with profile taverns, mini-restaurants or cozy and charming locals), Mercat (mostly Mediterranean cuisine) and Universitat-Sant Francesc (more commercial and tourist profile). However, Seu-Xerea is the area where more delicatessen taste can be found. Some arrocerias (restaurantes that serves mostly rice dishes) are worth try. They are in different parts of the center.
Ruzafa is what we would today be defined as an area of ‘author’. From being at fallas the most ‘fallero’ district in ‘cap i casal’ or VLC to what happens during the year, there is a noticeable difference. Today russafa normal dress serious business suit but informal plural design … This popular district has grown so much in a multiplier way as it´s difficult to imagine its restaurants and the most varied themed shops has reached this point regarding just for four years…
However, eating well in ruzafa focuses especially on ruzafa east. Among the Cadiz and Dr. Sumsi Streets the versatility and quality is considerable and ruzafa west, offer exists, of course, although perhaps less well suited for variables or innovative environments.
Gran Vía ‘Canovas’ – Pla del Remei. In the neighborhood of the Gran Vía or ‘Canovas’ there is a mix of commercial repertoire and high standing in a district of Cache and distinguised people, thegreatest example of valencian ‘example’ of all bourgeois expansion where is worthy. Arrocerías and ‘author’ national cuisine reference put the icing. In Pla del Remei, whose main artery is the Cirilo Amoros St., you can meet the streets Jorge Juan and Count of Salvatierra, modernist Colon market whose reform a few years ago has become a success for social and business meeting falenciar valencian people… one of favourite destinations to have anything in a relaxed and distended atmosphere in any of its terraces. Now the pocket must be prepared well in many of locals…
On the outskirts of Valencia highlights some provincial and even national category high end restaurants with prices not normally exceed € 60/70 per person. On the promenade or maritime towns (districts of El Cabanyal-Malvarrosa), there are very conventional and classic restaurants all there (usually arrocerias) but we can not expect much from the area except for very honorable exceptions.
