      It is since 1967 that the Aguerre family has been delighting the taste buds of regulars and gourmets of passages, who will always find a menu with beautiful products, worked with passion and a significant touch of femininity ! Refined decorations both in the dining room, as on the tables, the plates are also prepared with care, so that the pleasure of eating begins with that of contemplating.

      You will find at Restaurant Pottoka, desserts all "homemade", gourmet and refined. Do not hesitate to let yourself be tempted by a cup of ice cream, artisanal, melting and creamy. Note that Restaurant Pottoka offers a very friendly tapas formula on Sundays, for those who like to eat in a warm atmosphere.

    What a gem. Great presentation, food and service. Shh, don't tell anyone :) Did I mention that they have a Michelin Star? P.s. We did lunch.

    We ask for a vegetarian dish and we were very nicely surprised with creative dish we received. I had the local dish and was not disappointed. The ingredients they use are very good and fresh. Not the usual settings of touristic area. If anything, I believe they are understaffed which makes the waiting time a bit long.

    Extremely rude service, they just ignored us. When they finally showec up, they grabbed our phones instead of just scanning the pass sanitaire. Avoid at sll costs

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by herenas2019 (Valencia, Spain) on 19/08/2020

    Extremely rude waiter. We paid the drink and left, we didn't want to try anything else. By the way, my coke was warm and the glass with only ONE ice cube at 38 degrees outside
