We came especially to this area of Valencia to look for this restaurant after reading so many positive reviews and it did not disappoint! Wonderful tapas, both traditional and with a modern twist. Particular favourites include the sangria, the camembert with tomato jam and the patatas bravas.

This is a great little Tapas eatery. We ate here twice for dinner based on reviews from TripAdvisor. It lives up to its reviews. The camembert was especially delicious! Staff friendly and accommodating.

After reading all the positive reviews and the high score this restaurant gets, we decided to go here. Unfortunately a disappointing experience, leaving the restaurant about half an our later then entered, after having 4 tapas and each a glass of wine.
Tapas; not originally Spanish, very fatt,fried or heated in the microwave.
Staff; great, very friendly
Wine; very good, we had 2 glasses of Rioja, which were great!

If you want to enjoy typical Spanish tapas go somewhere else, as this place is full of tourists!
We have had great experiences at Docemil en Rusia, next to El Camino!

Hola Sander1900, gracias por visitarnos y opinar sobre nuestro local.
En nuestra carta puede encontrar cerca de 40 entradas para elegir y entre ellas puede encontrar numerosos platos naturales, frescos y sanos como nuestras ensaladas, tabla de patés vegetales, ajoarriero, escalivada, templado de camambert, huevos revueltos con puerro y gambas, salmorejo cordobés, emperador a la pancha, ..algunos de ellos vegetarianos 100% y otros incluso veganos.
La elección es suya nosotros ponemos las opciones y usted elige...
Con respecto a que no son tapas españolas el 90% lo son bravas, rabo de toro, escalibada, patatas a lo pobre, pisto, salmorejo, choricitos a la sidra, tabla de ibéricos, pimientos del piquillo, croquetas, ajoarriero, bacalao a la riojana, ....su opinión no la veo muy objetiva la verdad.
Gracias por alabar a nuestros vinos y camareros, es usted muy amable.
También reconocer que nuestro público a las 19hs de la tarde son más turistas y a partir de las 21 hs español. Puede comprobarlo los viernes y sábados a partir de las 21hs ya que en su mayoría son españoles y a las 23hs volvemos a llenar de nuevo en nuestro último turno donde el 100% es público local. Llevamos 10 años abiertos este 2018 y somo muy conocidos en la ciudad.
No pretendemos ser mejores que nadie en esta ciudad solo diferentes y la gente valora la decoración; la calidad en el servicio (el más numeroso del barrio por ratio de clientes) con una formación detallista, amable y profesional; la calidad de la comida ya que prácticamente todo es casero y sobre todo el precio.
Sabemos que no le podemos gustar a todo el mundo pero no puede usted asegurar que nuestra comida no es española (las propias fotos de sus platos son de los platos más típicos de todo el país, patatas bravas, patatas a lo pobre con jamón y huevos fritos y rabo de toro).
Igualmente gracias por su participación y visita.
Un saludo.

We took a chance and went to El Camerino Taberna without a reservation and got one of the last available tables. We loved the choice of tapas, a bacalao spread and a bulls tail stew - very meaty and rich. We finished with a slice of a chocolate cake with cookies, as the host described, as grandmother would make here in Valencia. With drinks the tab was surprisingly inexpensive.
