It looks like a -"its-here-the-locals-eat"kind of place but don't be fooled. No barcelona resident will be spotted here. The restaurant is owned by a group of restaurants, so no owner who will make sure everything is perfect at HIS restaurant. As a consequence the staff is very rude and not talkative as they only rush to the kitchen and back.... More

We went here following the reviews and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food excellent. We were so pleased we returned on another evening to find the seats out on the square all taken, the staff seated us inside to wait but produced a large plate of olives to keep us going - much appreciated....

We loved our meal at Casa Delfin. Dinner was one of our best in Barcelona. Fantastic, authentic bravas. Excellent service. We loved our waiter who was attentive and steered us to great choices. Elegant interior. Will definitely return.

I went here based on all the rave reviews and wanted authentic paella. Could not have been a worse experience. I'll start by saying the service and attitude of the staff was absolutely the worst I have experienced. I was a waitress at a high end restaurant and even my most pretentious and rude customers have treated me better than... More

We really enjoyed Casa Delfin on our recent trip to Barcelona. Food was delicious, service was good and atmosphere on a plaza facing the el born market was lovely. Close to the Picasso Museum.

We came here on the last night of our trip because of all the rave reviews but left feeling very disappointed. Maybe we were just too hungry but the portions were tiny and pretentious and not worth the money. My daughter had the langoustine and avocado salad which came with 5 tiny langoustine and a bunch of mixed greens. The... More

Buenos días Debbie M, Thank you for leaving a critique, we read all and do our best to improve when receiving constructive criticism. We´re sorry you found our portions sizes too small, we know that sizes in the United States are much larger and that our own might not stand up in comparison. Our home made burger weighs 200g, a...

I wanted this place to be wonderful but it was mediocre instead. The seafood was not fresh. The service was average. The prices were high. The décor was pleasant. I wish I had gone someplace better.

This was our favourite restaurant during our recent trip to Barcelona. Delicious food with a specials menu that changes every day, there was always something different we wanted to try. Tuna with avocado, mountain lamb, seafood paella were all big hits although perhaps special mention should go to the apple and cinnamon fritter dessert, flambéed at the table and really... More

My wife and I often share 2 or 3 dishes for lunch, and our lunch here was perfect. Gazpacho, a small green salad with Serrano ham, and a "black rice" risotto with shellfish. With a beer and tonic, we paid 24 euros. Very reasonable for this quality. Located on the square in front of the Born (old) market.

This is a great tapas bar, which provides space either to eat outside or in. If you choose the inside then the atmosphere is great, check out the ceiling. Staff make sure you are well looked after. Quality of food very good.
