Located in the small seaside town of Daimus and garnering one star in the last several Michelin Guides it was immediately following a substantial Paella lunch in Valencia that the GPS was pointed for Casa Manolo by Manuel Alonso, the original plan to taste a higher grade of Seafood and Rice quickly set aside after one look at the elegant dining room and â¬89 Tasting Menu.Occupying its place along the beach since 1985, the all-day bar and outdoor seating area originally managed by Alonsoâs parents before he and his brother took over the space and opened a more formal dining room in 2011, it was just moments before a 15h30 reservation that parking was found along a row of high-rises approximately two hundred meters from the restaurant, a reservation confirmed with broad smiles after entering the door guarded by a large statue of Bibendum.Making way through the Bar area, the menu there favorably priced and full of seafood specialties befitting Casa Manoloâs embrace of the local terrain, it is after walking up two stairs that guests find themselves inside the starred restaurant overlooking miles of ocean, the menu expectedly focused on a fishermanâs bounty but certainly not for lack in terms of exotic ingredients and creative, global ideas.Listed like many of the regionâs tasting menus, a rollicking progression of small bites followed by composed plates with fast-paced service and thoughtful portion sizes intended to keep the guest consistently entertained and never overwhelmed by any single dish, it was immediately upon noticing that Alonsoâs Crust Rice was part of the tasting that the decision was made to go all-in, wine deferred in favor of house-filtered water and the two-hour meal beginning quickly with a crispy amuse flavored like Tomatoes and Herbs with Dried Cod and briny Mayonnaise.Moving next into the menu itself, a total of twenty-two courses plus two bonus plates added by Chef Alonso who proved to be a gracious and friendly host despite limited English, Casa Manolo takes a unique approach to presenting its classic dishes as a series of bites, the Tomato Foam with Prune and Toro eating as light as a cloud but quickly washed away by the assertive flavors of âSummer in a glass,â the Rice Crisp with Pepper and Pork Fat another luscious bite as was the local Salt Cod packed into a small Fritter with a dollop of creamy Sauce.Taking reference from the Chefâs travels in the following small bites, both the miniature Greek Taco and clever Tikka Masala Brioche unexpected bites for the region while a toasted piece of Bread topped in cured Fish and Green Peppers was another highlight, the current seasonâs collection began with house-baked Bread flavored with Cheese and Onions before rolling into a chilly Oyster topped in Celery Ice Cream and Horseradish Foam, the follow-up of Cauliflower and Air Dried Octopus elegantly presented and made all the more delicious with a tableside squeeze of Prawnâs Head Stock. Listing the following course as simply âSea Urchin,â the actual composition a sweet and briny Custard with finely diced Cucumbers and Herbs that worked quite well in terms of taste and texture, those shying away from fish flavors would be well advised to avoid the Mackerel Tartare, though for those who enjoy such things the composition is one to behold with silky Fish mellowed by sweet Sherry beneath a slick of Yolk and Sea Foam.Next offering a deconstructed Salad with marinated Fish beneath a vibrant Vegetable Mousse it was here that Alonso served what would prove to be the mealâs most impressive progression, the streaked plate of Grilled Octopus and Pork Jowl with Demiglace expectedly rich followed by a palate-cleansing bite of bitter Dim Sum before moving into a twirl of housemade Pasta blended with the tender duo of smoked Eel and Duck.Drinking a glass of infused water to once again refresh the palate, follow-up plates of meaty Turbot and a sizable Shrimp simply boiled in Sea Water showcasing Casa Manoloâs ingredient quality in a manner that Quique Dacosta would just a few hours later, those seeking Chef Alonsoâs best plate need look no further than the confit Egg served beneath Basil Noodles and slippery baby Eels, a bold kick of Garlic and shaved Cheese bringing disparate flavors together with no one ingredient overwhelming the others.Happy to taste Chefâs Crust Rice, the traditional Valencian dish beneath a crispy cap nicely prepared with plenty of Saffron and slices of aged Ham, another menu highlight was the â¬5 supplement of Tripe, Morcilla and Sausage cooked as it was by his mother â definitely not a dish for those afraid of a little funk but otherwise worth making a special visit for as a full plate of slowly simmered meat is available on the a la carte menu for just â¬18.Requesting substitution of one dessert, a decision made as much out of a desire for French Toast as from a personal dislike of Cantaloupe, suffice it to say that Casa Manoloâs Caramelized Torrejas is as trip-worthy as the Eels, Tripe or nearby beach while the deconstructed Cheesecake was also quite good, one final surprise found when the restaurant presented itâs âIced Coffeeâ as a fresh shot served next to Ice Cubes made from frozen Espresso.Thank you very much for your kind comment.A pleasure to have received you in our house.A greeting

This was our first visit, we had the weekend menu which inluded 5 starters and a choice of rice main and a desert, all the starters were exceptional and different including tuna the most chicken tasting chicken I have ever had and dorada all small but full of flavour. For the main we had the spanish version of risotto, but wetter, duck with setas the other choice was with lobster. The service was exceptional,this is a small restaurant so booking is required,we will certainly be back again

From the moment we entered the restaurant we were made very welcome and the service was excellent we had chipitas to start and then paella mixta which was outstanding, for desert we had a home made cheesecake and tiramisu which were both very good. Although not the easiest place to find or to park we will be returning soon

The restaurant is a modest place, but with excellent cuisine marked by fish, seafood and Valencian rice. Amadeo Faus chef and restaurant manager was first classified in 2014 FideuÃ contest, cooking star dish of Gandia. He also holds other awards in presti
Chef Amadeo has won awards for their cuisine and rightly so, the food is very good indeed. We had the Seafood Paella - Paella de Mariscos - which was excellent with good sized prawns and really tasty rice. Whilst waiting for this to cook we started with Sepia ( cuttlefish cooked whole) which was tender, Gambas a ajillos, ie grilled prawns in garlic oil, large and very sweet and Chopitos, baby squid deep fried in a very light batter. All the dishes were of a high standard. House wine, a Bobal, delicious and reasonably priced at â¬9. Great dining experience, very efficient and attentive service, highly recommended.

A really high-quality range of tapas, beautifully prepared and served. The prices are surprisingly inexpensive, which means that you can eat well for a very reasonable cost. Very friendly and helpful staff, and the menus are available in English if you prefer. A good, again reasonably priced selection of wines. You really need to make a reservation because they do not have many tables. Highly recommended!

Small and charming restaurant located in the center of Gandia. Ideal for lunches and romantic dinners, and also for business lunches. Do not forget to try our Star starters, as Scallop Telero, crunchy cod fritters or corn pancakes (Small corn pancakes stu

Visited with friends who live locally. What an absolute treat and one of the very best restaurants we have visited in a long time. Starters were the choice of the restaurant, which were fantastic. Chose main course and pudding-also excellent. Service second to none with both waitresses more than happy to explain the dishes and were very patient with our poor Spanish. Large tables, plenty space and a great ambience. You could not ask for more. Many thanks for a great experience. Also, taking cognisance of the foregoing, very good value for money at câ¬135 including wine, for four persons.
Un sitio moderno con cocina de fusiÃ³n, muy a la moda. Hemos pedido menÃº de fin de semana para dos y salmÃ³n teriyaki y hamburguesa de cangrejo para los niÃ±os. Los menÃºs muy copiosos: ensalada, bombones de rabo de toro y tortilla japonesa ( okonomiyaki) luego arroz meloso. De postre tarta al horno de queso. Los entrantes espectaculares todos. El arroz estaba bueno, aunque no es el mejor que hemos comido, no era exactamente meloso, pero muy sabroso. La atenciÃ³n de 11. Han sido muy atentos sobre todo con los niÃ±os ofreciÃ©ndoles platos fuere de carta... Recomiendo el sitio sin lugar a dudas
