Restaurant, Spanish, $$$
In the lively, bohemian Ruzafa district just a short walk from the Old Town, Casa Roberto is one of the best-known and best-loved paella restaurants among Valencians. Opened in 1986, it offers one of the best traditional paellas in Valencia. Casa Roberto’s paella follows the classic recipe, although adding slightly more snails and a good portion of vegetables. Beyond paella, it serves all kinds of traditional Valencian rice dishes, as well as popular tapas, including a famous jamon serrano. If you want a truly Valencian environment, Casa Roberto is the place to go.
