In Vortex Coworking we have TWO privileged locations:Vortex Centro next to Mercado Colón and the Turiar park, and Vortex Playa, between El Cabanyal  and la Marina de Valencia, close to Malvarrosa beach. Both coworking spaces are surrounded by a great gastronomic and cultural offer. Many of the newly arrived members in our community ask us for recommendations on where to eat in Valencia (especially in our neighborhood); so in order not to repeat ourselves so much we have decided to convert and organize the oral recommendations of our community in some blogs:

In this Blog, we will talk about the restaurants and bars that we like the most in the beach of Valencia. We’ll start with the more formal and higher-priced ones (for special occasions) and continue with more informal and affordable ones, to which  Vortex Coworking community goes often.

What they do all have in common are the magnificent sea views, the design, quality and proximity to Vortex Coworking Playa. Let’s go:

    1. Panorama

One of our favorite restaurants in the port of Valencia to enjoy good rice, with unbeatable views of the sea and the beach. It is located on the breakwater and thanks to the glass walls it seems that one is eating over the sea. Very complete menu with elaborated starters, fish, meats and excellent presentation. But it is not just a restaurant, it also has a terrace where you can enjoy a good coffee, drinks or cocktails. And to top it off, you have first line to see the surfers in the water until sunset on days with waves.

    2. Marina Beach y el Portet

A restaurant with a swimming pool that integrates directly with the beach, with entrance both from the Marina of Valencia and from the sand; another of our favorites in the port of Valencia even for afterwork and sundayfunday. It has two restaurants with different vibes: one more relaxed on the sand (El Portet), and another more elegant, Marina Beach. Mediterranean, fusion and Japanese food. Also, for those who like to extend lunches or dinners with drinks and party here you can do it: currently one of the best known and lively clubs of Valencia day and night, with performances of well-known DJs several days a week.

    3. Veles e vents

This iconic building of the port of Valencia is a multi gastronomic space. Built for the Copa America 2007 and 2010, it is composed of three different restaurants with innovative vocation and Valencian cuisine: La Marítima, MalaBar Steakhouse and La Sucursal. Here you can also continue your meal or evening in the clubs around the building, for example in High Cube, a club over the water with amazing views and sunsets.

    4. Duna Puerto

For those looking for a restaurant to eat paella, fideuá and typical rice dishes, Duna Puerto is a classic in Valencia with which you will always go right. They also have a terrace by the sea where you can extend the evenings and enjoy amazing cocktails. Very elegant, perfect for both a business meal and for friends and family gathering. A “must” in Valencia.

    5. Bar Restaurante Aduana 

It started as a family business in the 30s and over time they grew and until in 1941 they became the Bar Restaurante Aduana located in the old Customs building of the port of Valencia, just 5 minutes from our space. Fish, seafood and popular dishes, and at the same time elegant. Another classic, important to book in advance!

    6. La Fábrica de Hielo

One of the trendiest spaces in Malvarrosa Beach. It is an old industrial warehouse renovated with style, combining the industrial with the vintage. It is mainly a cultural space with exhibitions, workshops, live music, etc. and options to eat thanks to “La Regional”, a food truck with a menu of rich sandwiches on focaccia bread, Galician or vegan beef burgers, nachos, hummus, tacos day and other occasional specialties. And vermouth, beers, coffees, and teas. A classic for the afterworks of Vortex Coworking community.

     7. El Escondite 

The name is no coincidence, as it is an almost “hidden” place between the surf and sailing schools of La Marina. A “chiringuito” on the asphalt where you can eat in the Marina casual snacks and rations. Outdoors and in front of a small esplanade where you can skate.

    8. Saboramar

One of our favorite options for everyday life with daily menu. A casual restaurant tucked away between EL Tinglado 2 and the Clock Building on foot of the moorings. Breakfast is available from 9:00 a.m.

    9. Beachbol

If like us you are passionate about Beach Volley and/or the beach, this is the best option to eat something fast and healthy. Natural juices, smoothies, fresh fruit, salads, sandwiches, focaccias, chapatas, etc. and all eco-friendly and at a very reasonable price. “An oasis of simplicity and naturalness where the time goes slower and everyone finds their place”. Perfect for recharging batteries after a game, or, if you don’t play volley, distract yourself while watching others play.

    10. La Otra Parte

If you like tapas you can not miss this place. A fun and pleasant place to eat or dine, with terrace to the street and palm trees. Right in front of the Las Arenas Hotel. Lively place, culture and good value for money. Also, there are days with a flamenco show (usually on Tuesdays).

We have left off the list many good options to eat, dine or have brunch on the beach of Patacona (La Más Bonita possibly the most emblematic), which have been left out of the list for being further away from our space (although we go sometimes cycling, which takes us 15 minutes). And in Mavarrosa when it reaches Patacona, we must name what is considered the best paella in Valencia: Casa Carmela . A restaurant created in 1922 where paella is prepared in the most traditional way with orange wood; and they also invite you to the kitchen to see in the first line the elaboration from start to finish.

In La Marina de Valencia, in the port, on the beach of Cabanyal, Malvarrosa, and Patacona there are many more alternatives, but of the ones we know, these are our top 10 selection. If you think one is missing or you have discovered something unique, do not hesitate to leave us a comment and update us 🙂

Bon appetite 😉
