      I have visited Valencia twice in the last 5 years and this is by far my favourite restaurant. I can't recommend it highly enough. After my first visit the staff and food created such an amazing experience that it inspired me to learn Spanish. It was great to return 5 years later and see how the restaurant and food have evolved and improved. Hopefully it's not 5 years before I can return again!

      I enjoy Refugio's so much that I have a loyalty card, where for every 10 meals, you get €10 off a future meal. Although it may not be in the top 10 restaurants in Valencia, it is a great little place with lovely staff and tasty food - what more does one want?

      Really terrific meal. Paco selected the wines and kept us amused. The refurbishment has gone well and has not diminished the setting. We've been many times over the years and this was one of the best.

      La comida muy buena todo lo que nos sirvieron, sin embargo el vino estaba sin temperatura, y todos los que tienen a un precio muy caro comparado con la comida.

      We had the weekend set menu. The appetizer potato/smoked salmon and pulpo was fantastic! A dish worthy of a return!! Excellent value for the meal, lovely environment as well as great service. Definitely recommend!

      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.
