More than a century old, the “bean palace” earned its name with recherché fava bean dishes, but the restaurant has evolved into a rather elegant dining room specializing in all manner of traditional Valencian cuisine. If you want to know how a local dish is cooked in the classic manner, order it here. There are many variants of paella and caldosa on the menu, and even a few fava bean dishes. Chances are, though, the waiter will advise that you try the catch of the day. He’ll be right, and you can always get some favas as a side dish. Make reservations.
