Paco´s, Sella’s liveliest tapas bar, is in the main square, the Plaza Mayor. Although it´s small and a bit cramped, is the ONLY place to watch the big football games on TV and perhaps the best place in the village to try the local tapas.
Mª Amparo will do Merluza ( hake) in batter (“espardenyas“), Patatas Bravas . spicy!, salads, prawns, and whatever else she has on offer. Always hot, always well done, always served with a smile and promptly. Vegetarians can find grilled local vegetables and there’s a good translation of the menu in English.
This is the unofficial headquarters of the Hunting Society and is the unofficial centre of Sella. No need to say more! Oh yes, sweets and ice-cream on sale in summer as well. Of course!
There´s a menu on the wall saying what she´s got, and the choice is always wider at the weekend, but here´s what you can usually get from about 11.00 in the morning till about 3:30 and then from about 7:30 till about 10:00. ( earlier in the morning you can always get toast or a sandwich: “Una media tostada” or ” una bocata...” This menu, in Valencian and English, is available in the bar.
