Visited here a while ago, took my sister over as a surprise for doing so well on her A levels. Concierge recommended this restaurant and very impressed. Sit upstairs it has amazing views, even when it gets dark! Food, wine and service all exceptional, not the cheapest of places but you pay for what you get and we got a... More

Huge menu choice and really nice food. Good service. Good value. Nice atmosphere. Great views. Although i think it would be better for a nice leisurely lunch rather than a big night out...good for families too.

Friends recommended this restaurant for the seafood paella. We went for an early dinner. There were just a few other diners. We sat outside...on the water...linens on the tables...menu a bit pricey. The waiter, Peter, was very helpful. We kept it simple...salads and seafood paella. Peter provided good service, the salads were okay, but the paella was just barely okay.... More

We ate there few days ago for dinner. Ordered a special menu "my way" and sea bass cooked with vegetable. the food my way included a cold soup which I ordered was water melon sangria, fried squid rings, fried cod and caramel custard. Sea bass is a little raw to our taste but it may be the taste of Spanish.... More

We were staying at the Pullman Madrid and thought that we should walk around the area and have dinner near the water. We had come to this restuarant before and decided to eat here again. The seafood paella was actually quite excellent and we also had the seafood platter with half lobster more. Both were quite excellent and the service... More

We had a delightful lunch of calamari, salad greens, and two kinds of paellas. We had a refreshing white wine to go with it. Dessert was homemade icecream (mmmm, coconut!) and white chocolate/lemon cake. Lovely view of the sea. Service was prompt. If I go back to Barcelona, I'd love to eat here again.

We first went to this restaurant 20 years ago, but revisited it last week, as a party of four. It remains a very popular choice so it is worth booking for the upper section of the restaurant which has good sea views. If you can get it, go for a table by the window. There is a wide choice of...

We were a party of ten and had pre-booked this place. We were all a bit disappointed with the restaurant. The room was an annexe off the main restaurant and was really cold and uninviting. The staff did try and brought in some patio heaters. the food was OK but no more. Communication seemed difficult even though I can speak... More

They don't advertise it but ask to see their prix fixe menu. Came here for dinner and had jamon, mussels, lobster, and Catalan cream for dessert, and all for only 25 euros. Overall the food was good, and the service was great.
