Fumiferro Gastrogrill celebrates a whole week of love. From February 14th to 17th, they have prepared three out-of-menu options that aim high. The first of them is the smoked duck magret and grilled papaya Thai salad. The other two we prefer not to reveal, they will be a surprise when you visit them in full Cabanyal. To have a good start to the evening, enjoy a welcome cocktail in front of the house. In addition, the team has recently released a second project near Valencia: Rim n Bar in Sedaví. There they also dedicate an entire week to Valentine’s Day with a closed menu of 50 euros per couple with the idea that they share.
If your downfall is the most traditional Italian cuisine, your ideal choice will be Il Rosso. Choose from any of the three venues because they all share the same menu. They have a selection of four starters to share, with passion salad, carpaccio, cheese fondue and fresh pasta. For the main course, choose between a juicy Galician steak, or a delicious carillera. In addition, you can choose from a wide variety of Italian wines, beers or soft drinks. To finish the night with the best taste in your mouth, you should try one of the artisan desserts: homemade tiramisu or a brownie with ice cream.
Clectic bets on its migratory cuisine for this special evening. Acapulco Cocktail, octopus in love, creamy avocado and cream of beet, and for the main taste a blushing salad (made with red fruits) and tacos cochinita pibil. Hail of cava and passion fruit, chocolate cake and sweet hearts are the proposals to close the night. Pure pleasure.
In the Puerta del Mar restaurant, they take Valentine’s Day very seriously. The special menu, which you can try until February 17th, is composed of a starter and a main course to choose from, as well as bread, dessert, and a bottle of wine called “The Kiss”, and has options for all tastes. Salmon salad, octopus cocktail, laced with fava beans or scrambled vegetables with goat cheese are some of the thing you can try. Rice dishes, kebabs, skewers or fish are other options for the main course. As well as being able to enjoy its delicious dishes, you can go home with take-out for two to spend an unforgettable evening together.

For starters, you can have artichokes confit and pesto and citrus dressing, “brute” cuttlefish croquette and foie micuit bonbons.
