Taste the authentic Valencian rice in Oliva

It is summer, that ideal time to enjoy the beaches and gastronomy of the Costa Blanca. And what dish is more special in the Valencian Community than its exquisite rice? Discover with us the exquisite traditional rice dishes that you can taste in the Soqueta restaurant of Oliva.


There are many restaurants next to the beach in Valencia, but if you want to eat really well you will have to look a little more. Just a few meters from the beach of Oliva is the Soqueta, a restaurant with 35 years of history that has become a landmark in the area. Their chef specializes in Mediterranean cuisine with modern touches made with fresh products from the region. In addition, their team cares for their guests with delicacy, making them feel at home in a quiet and bright environment overlooking the sea.


Oliva’s best rice dishes

Valencians are strong advocates of traditional paella. However, there are endless delicious Valencian rice dishes that you can taste and that you will love! For example, the “arroz del senyoret or señoret” —something like rich kid rice— is a dish for delicate palates, as it contains already peeled seafood so that the diner does not have to stain even a little. Here you can also order the special Soqueta rice or a delicious creamy fish rice. On the other hand, you can order on request a succulent paella of beans, artichokes and chicken or a thin “fideuá” of duck, foie and vegetables. All of them are an extraordinary experience, delicacies with which you will discover the most authentic flavours of the Mediterranean coast.
