Watch as the chefs prepare and serve exquisite and unique versions of traditional Spanish and Valencian dishes in Quique DaCosta's diaphanous foodie haven on Joaquín Costa Street. The house cocktail, "Hola Mercatbar," is crisp but sweet, a pleasing mixture of sparkling cava and ripe berries. Fried cocas (a traditional yeasted flatbread like pita or pizza dough) topped with bacon and mushrooms or tuna and olives are perfect washed down with a beer or glass of wine.
Tables and seating at the bar are comfortable, but fill up fast, so make a reservation, especially for weekend dinners and week-day lunches. Fixed price menus are an inexpensive way to try a little bit of everything, but everyone in your party has to agree on which tapas and main dishes to order.
