In my opinion, Sents is one of the world's best restaurants. The elegant contrasts of Valencian and Asian, hot and cold, wet and dry... perfectly measured and executed recipes... well-conceived progression in the menu and carefully chosen wine pairings... it's gastronomy of the highest order, and delight beyond belief. Moreover, the dining room is spacious, quiet (with discreet chill-out background music), and has a pleasant view over a park. Service is kind, attentive, well-informed, and efficient. Sents offers only two menus: one with 12 courses, the other with 15. (If you want a la carte, try their more informal restaurant, La Cuina, next door.) I had 12 courses and it was a suitable quantity for me. At around 90 euros per person with wine pairing, it's not exactly low-budget, but still a bargain considering that the quality matches or surpasses many world-famous Michelin three-stars. Five TripAdvisor stars (or even three Michelin ones) can't begin to do justice to such a sublime dining experience. Go see for yourself!

The breakfast offered by this Café bar is second to none. For quality, quantity (and be prepared to eat a generous helping) service and price, look no further. An extensive range of breakfast food is on offer, just ask, but beware that the grand bocadillos are grand in content and size and absolutely delicious.. A good helping of nuts and olives is gratis; soft drinks or cervezas are served promptly and the coffee to choice is served hot. Staff are attentive and happy without being pushy. Eat inside or outside and the reputation of Café Bar Miranda means it is always quite full. Very modern and very clean with fresh table covers for each change of client . English is spoken, but they love non Spanish people to try Spanish language. Plenty of off road parking is available. Café Bar Miranda really is unbeatable in this region. Open 06:00 to 13:00 Monday to Saturday.

Gastrotendencia "Glocal" with a format for all audiences, philosophy "homemade" and a multifunctional space with a clear experiential vocation, a gastro continuous reformulation and exploration, in perpetual beta.
I'm from Melbourne and used to Melbourne prices... Therefore, this place is a god send! €2 wines, €8 ribs... We have never had anything like it. There's was 8 of us and we listened to a great live band, while sitting in the sun and enjoying life.
Thanks so much, it was super amazing. Will be back for sure!!!

Service and presentation is excellent at this venue but food cost to value is average, The dishes are moderate in size and diners could be hungry when leaving the restaurant but quality and service is outrstandingly good.
Average cost per diner in late 2015 was 11 euros per person for menu del dia, - evening menu at weekends very good and very attentive but inobtrusive service. One of the better venues in the centre of Ontinyent

Best coffeehouse ever! I have been in Ontinyent, Spain, far from my home, for almost a year, and when I come to Márago I feel a sense of home. With a very relaxed atmosphere, very nice indoor and outdoor Seating, cool jazzy music, amazing menus and very sweet and friendly staff people that make me feel like I belong, I feel very comfortable and like a local here :) They offer homemade, made-to-order, delicious drinks of all kinds, whether you like authentic, specialty coffee drinks, homemade juices, milkshakes and smoothies, specialty drinks and a huge selection of authentic, loose-leaf teas...for food I have only tried their amazing crêpes but I understand they also offer baked goods, breakfast items, sandwiches and even tapas most evenings. Whether I want to have a quiet relaxing morning of Reading, a place to meet with friends for a coffee or a place to bring my family or visitors, this is where I go. Márago is the best. Thank you for making me feel like a local♥

We had such an enjoyable evening here in the Terrace at the back. We speak no Spanish and the owner speaks about the same amount of English! He patiently took time to carefully explain the menu and the dining options with us guessing words and using Google translate. And the resulting meal was delicious. We arrived at 9pm and were the first there but it soon started to fill up.
The concept (when we were there anyway) is a fixed menu. You share starters and have a meat or fish plate as a main course. Then he prepared a platter of desserts for us so we could each try a variety. For €20 a head you get 2 starter platters, a main, dessert and coffee. For €27 you get an extra starter plus your drink included. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of a local red wine.
We're still not sure what the starters we had were (We had Google translate tell him we trust you, bring whatever you think). But the little filo pastries filled with chorizo, black pudding and a sausage meat were delicious. As was what seemed essentially a delicious fishcake served on a round of flatbread. And we had vol-au-vents filled with a mushroomy mousse.
For mains you select your meat/fish and each came With some sauteed potatoes and peppers. With many hand gestures he managed to let us know there was shoulder of lamb, pork fillet (gesturing down his spine), or knee (knuckle? ) of pork, as well as a tuna option and another fish. (Unfortunately no breast of chicken as I'm sure that would have been hysterical for him to act out for us ). We had a choice of pepper or blue cheese sauce for the meats. He was happy to do plain for the children.
To sum it up, the highlight for us was the owner/manager taking the time and trouble for friendly service with a smile. And the fun of trying to communicate with single words and mimes. That the food was excellent and the candlelit garden atmospheric were happy bonuses. Oh. And in case you're wondering why it was so difficult... We didn't realise we could ask for a copy of the menu of the day, we only got that as we left as a souvenir! You could always ask at the start

Great tapas if you are looking to go out for a few drinks and a snack. A victim of their own success as always busy so you are lucky if you can get a table. A very popular venue for party goers or having "a night on the town" Nice place.

This restaurant is an excellent place to in summertime or when the weather is nice in other seasons for people with children as they have a big Terrace located on the plaza, so no cars around and the children can play safely.
We found the inside of this restaurant (as lots of spanish restaurants in that area) not very attractive or cozy. The tapas tasted good and price is reasonable the food is also very fresh. The staff is as often in this area very friendly and helpful. The opening hours are not so regular, we wanted to go on a Thursday evening in July around 20:30 but it was closed, while it was supposed to be open upon the internet.

We decided to try Paixixi for the first time this past Saturday. We could not be more pleased. Everything was wonderful.
We had a variety of different starters. Definitely would recommend the "twister" and the croquet of pesto (the croquet of chicken and the artichoke were also amazing). All the starters were amazing.
Our group had paella and some fish. The main courses were just as good as the starters.
We hadn't planned on ordering desert but everything had been so great that we all ordered desert. We had five different things and all were great.
It was a great experience and it is truly recommended if you are in the area.
