A Pleasant Spanish Meal

Came in for the Paella and was pleased with our choice. It was pretty quiet, as were many of the restaurants, and we didn't have too longer wait for our courses which was good after some slow service elsewhere. Service was fine and food was good but not startling - it was a nice meal and the... read more

Pros: - Close to the harbour - Sort of good atmosphere - English speaking waitress Cons: - No music, we could hear the air ventilator the whole time - Below-par paellas... We could've had better ones in Sao Paulo, which is in the mountains... -

Really good value lunch menu, 3 courses for €15. They do a meat paella as well, for those that don't love fish. Definitely recommend trying the cava sangria.

The real spanish paella in Barceloneta. Eating a delicious paella and drinking a tasteful red wine ("tinto" in Catalan speaking) in front of the Mediterranean coast, with a beautiful starry sky and your love is priceless 😘 . . .

Three of us are at this restaurant and had great paella-- seafood and scallop dishes. Wine and service were great along with the food. Nice location by the harbor. Highly recommend.

Our waitress at L'Arros was friendly however, communication errors meant that the wrong dishes were brought to us twice. Once we had the correct dishes, the food proved delicious. The paellas were exceptional and varied in choice. Although there was a lack of vegetarian options. Pudding too was lovely. I would highly recommend this charming restaurant for a relaxing lunch...

In search of a true and delicious Paella we relied on T A reviews to guide us. L'arros came up as the supremo and off we trekked. We were so delighted, what a restaurant, the options for paella varieties were many, we chose a baby octopus and artichoke and shared it. So absolutely delicious, the creamy rice blackened with squid... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
