Our best meal experience in Valencia. We loved this small , highly individual restaurant which has a short, adventurous menu and excellent, expert service Each course , was perfect in its own way. With good quality ingredients and great technique. In terms of exciting flavour combinations , you will find this hard to beat. Extremely good galue for the level of quality. Vaut le detour.

This place was amazing. On the night we were there it was quiet but there were four strong women manning the floor and the kitchen. It felt like we were visiting someone's home. The food was excellent, affordable, and the wine was some of the regions best. In case you are wondering what we ate: ceviche, goat cheese terrine, lamb, and cod all spanish yet all cooked with a flair that is sure to delight.

When you just see the interior you probably wouldn't stop.

When you have tasted the food you would definitely go back!

We were staying in the medieval part of the city and were looking for something we'd remember and that stood out from the hundreds of other places. El Refugioi had great reviews and was fantastic. Our Spanish is pretty marginal, but they were super friendly and did their best to communicate with us. Our son is also about as picky of an eater as they come but our waiter (maybe the owner) made him feel right at home and brought out what would certainly qualify as exotic food in my son's book but he tiried it and ended up eating it all and loved it! The rest of our dishes were nothing short of amazing. By far the best meals we had in Vallencia... if not Spain. Great atomosphere, outstanding food, friendly staff... well worth the visit.

It has been an amazing experience in terms of flavors! The chef perfectly mixed Mediterranean ingredients with Oriental/Fusion one. And the result is extraordinary for the taste and also light!

Some dishes were lovely. Others did not work so well. Good service. Very little atmosphere. Overall a little too expensive for the dining experience you get.

Our second visit to this restaurant. We can't visit Valencia without having a meal there. The food is amazing, amongst the best anywhere. We will be going back and would recommend it to everyone.

Great tastes, good portions, one exception on the foie grass, which was too fat and the plate too large

Once again, a fantastic meal. I was out with other expats for dinner. in the group there are two vegetarians and the rest are omnivores. the duck was rich with flavor and a huge portion. two in the group had fish; one had the tuna and the other rape. everyone enjoyed their food, the wine and the service. highly recommended!

Food was good quality, slightly different from the usual menu and with friendly service. A pretty basic and small space but clean and OK.

When I booked I said that I can't have gluten or lactose. When we arrived the owner went over the menu advising what to order. He then came back and warned me not to taste my husbands meal as there was gluten in the sauce! Excellent meal and more than helpfull owner. Well worth looking up if your in the area.

Interesting, inventive fare--- unique pairings that should not work ... and instead ...result in tantalizing bites.
