I’m a huge fan of Barcelona, but Valencia is a foodie city and can definitely keep up with Barcelona when it comes to restaurant selection. Plus, the city beach is a lot nicer! We spent 10 days in Valencia last year and had a lot of time to explore the city extensively. 

Dulce de Leche

For cake lovers, Dulce de Leche is the right place. There is an incredibly large selection of patisseries, from Oreo Cheescake to Cinnamon Roll, you will find everything. Gluten-free options are also available. I highly recommend Dulce de Leche to any breakfast- or coffeelover. There are now even three locations in Valencia – Russafa, Jesus and Francia.

La Pappardella

Yummy! The food at La Pappardellawas so delicious that we had to go twice. Here you will find a wide selection of homemade pasta of all kinds. Italian cuisine is simply a must on any vacation!


Saona is a Spanish restaurant chain with several locations, including one in Valencia. The location at the Plaza de la Virgen is absolutely nice especially for dinner, because you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Neptune Fountain. The offer is also unbeatable, for €10.90 you get a delicious 3-course meal. You can choose between different options for appetizer, main course and dessert. Vegetarian options are available. The price-performance ratio is great and the atmosphere speaks for itself. Tables should be booked in advance, the Saona is very popular!

Waffle Time

What’s that nice saying? Treat yourself! At Waffel Time there are lush coated waffles on a stick, which can be put together as you wish. I must say that it is a massive snack, but you should definitely give it a try! The waffles are also ideal for sharing. 

El Infante

At El Infante we spent our last evening. We walked by a few days before and the sweet fairy lights made us want to end our vacation here. Please excuse me for not having any food pictures, but there was a bit more wine involved this evening than planned :D. However, if you are looking for delicious tapas, this is the place to go! The food is delicious and absolutely recommendable. 

You should also try:

  • Khambu Vegan Food:Vegan burgers, cakes and more can be found at Khambu. I definitely had the best vegan Oreo cheesecake of my life here! You should not miss it when visiting Valencia ;).
  • Beachbol:We spent almost every lunch at the beach bar „Beachbol“. Here you can get delicious salads and smoothies, so perfect for a hot beach day!
  • Rawcoco:Rawcoco offers vegan and vegetarian breakfast options. By the way, there is not only a restaurant in Valencia, but also in other cities in Spain, such as Madrid or Palma de Mallorca. 

¡que aproveche!
