Located on the edge of the Mediterranean coastline and surrounded by the spectacular dunes of Albufera Natural Park, Duna is one of the best locations for alfresco dining in Valencia.
Popular with locals and visitors alike, Duna is located just outside the city on the beaches of El Saler. The sophisticated restaurant takes in an expansive indoor lounge, an external conservatory and a magnificent terrace, which sits adjacent to the white sands. The clean, minimalist décor is comprised of white furniture and linens and dark wood flooring – reflecting the purity and simplicity of the restaurant and its ethos.
The terrace offers the perfect setting for a romantic meal or a chill out with friends and loved ones – plush white sofas, soft piano music and candlelit areas all entice visitors to relax and watch the magical sunset over the Mediterranean while the waves crash on the shore.
And it’s not just the surroundings that are exquisite – the cuisine is top-notch. Ideal for foodies, Duna focuses on using only the highest quality ingredients to “make the traditional Mediterranean cuisine a delicacy.” Beautifully presented dishes include such delights as foie gras with caramelized apple, broiled lobster and fresh squid. The restaurant is also famous for its rice dishes – there are more than 50 varieties of rice on the menu to suit every flavour and every diner’s desires, making this the perfect place to try some of the dishes that Valencia is famous for, most specifically the paella. The wine list is extensive with many famous Spanish names and the staff are more than happy to offer recommendations to perfectly complement your meal. Homemade apple pie is another of Duna’s speciality, so be sure to leave room for dessert. All in all, this is the ideal place to escape the buzz of the city and enjoy fantastic food in elegant, tranquil surroundings.
