The ‘24/7 Valencia’ team have had some really memorable nights of delicious dining & superb live music at ‘Mar d’Amura’, which is now a definitive part of the thriving Cabanyal scene. This place has quality written all over it and attracts an appreciative crowd and is refreshingly integrated with the district. Set in the heart of the Cabanyal district, it is run by Maria de Miguel, a popular local of this still humble barrio. Many will know her from having run the legendary live music venue ‘Café Murnau’ in the past.
Maria has brought plenty of experience with her with this long-term project at ‘Mar d’Amura’…that is really broad in scope. The vision is a gastronomic and cultural space for locals and visitors. Indeed, she tells us that they have an upstairs that will be opened one day in the future, which bodes well given just how active a place the ground floor already is. She has a dynamic team behind her, with Alicia Gallego running the restaurant and others in the team organizing the busy cultural programme with excellent live music included…
Dig the tasty octopus! The philosophy of the kitchen is market produce, with seasonal products used in Valencian & Mediterranean cuisine and the gastronomy of the Cabanyal. It is also inspired by Moroccan recipes. The dishes are elaborate, artistically presented and healthy and good value, considering the quality of the ingredients. Their desserts are 100% homemade. From Monday to Friday, they have a daily midday menu for 9.50€ and they always have options for vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free dishes too. Large groups with specialized menus are catered for at any hour and any day of the week if you book in advance.
