A return visit to Habitual found the food just as good as we remembered (including the great carrot and salmon salad and smoked ribs) but the service wasn't a patch on what we had last year. There were only three wait staff attending to more tables than they could easily manage, so there were awkward intervals when waiting to place our order or ask for another glass or wine. Perhaps Ricard Camarena can transfer some staff over from his flagship restaurant, and trust that people can find their way to the toilet there on their own! They would be much better employed here!

However, that glitch aside Habitual still offers some excellent food and wine at very reasonable prices.

The restaurant is located in the basement of Colon market, a very nicely refurbished old market in the old town of Valencia. It is managed by Chef Ricard Camarena, well known local chef specialised in traditional food from different corners of the Mediterranean.

We went for dinner with a couple of friends and we had a very nice night. We ordered starters to share such as ensaladilla rusa, berenjenas asadas and rillete de atún which were delicious. As main course, I ordered solomillo de vaca gallega which I really enjoyed!

I will go back in my next visit to Valencia.

This restaurant is outstanding, the location in Mercado Colon is beautiful, the cuisine is excellent the service is remarkable, and yet the place is simple an unpretentious. It is not common to be in a restaurant with such a high standard yet relaxed and affordable.

Our daughter is studying in Valencia and discovered this gem, she took us here for our first visit...What can we say but....Fabulous Food, Fantastic Service and great prices!
The food is all locally sourced, using fresh ingredients grown in their own place. Cooked in a very modern way.
Plenty of choice for vegetarians and vegans too!!!
