Great range of fresh paella - flexible and helpful staff

Very good selection of Paellas and staff were flexible with menu options - we thought it was excellent paella, not the frozen stuff you get on the Rambla and some tourist restaurants - location on the main harbour road was a bit busy but you were sheltered by screens.

Restaurant specialised in paella and rice dishes, but the sea food paella we tried was just in the average, nothing special but not bad. The location is ok and the waiters friendly.

So many of the restaurants on this strip are poor to unbelievable. This place is a diamond in the rough. Yes there are better restaurants, but for this area.... The paella was grand, the rabbit and seafood in particular. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The measures of Ricard generous and the whole deal was good value.

Great service, prices & selection. However my boyfriend and I ordered two different kinds of paella and every piece of meat had a bone in it. Made eating our meal more difficult. Made us wonder if this is how they save money on meat? Wouldn't go again just because of this.

The food was mediocre but overpriced. The paella was oily and quite salty, surely not in line with the standards in the region. A salad was good. We had booked a table outside, but there was no space when we arrived, at the time agreed. The service was nothing special either. In a nutshell: Surprised by the high average rating... More

I wasn't that overly thrilled with my experience here for dinner. The lady staff member had a crappy attitude. The food was average... The deserts really sucked! The chocolate mouse we ordered tasted off... Shame because I was really looking forward to this gluten free meal..... But conesa topped it by a mile and it was less than half the... More

We stopped for a driink at lunchtime and were greeted with lovely beaming smiles. We had decided to eat at one of the harbour side restaurants to celebrate our wedding anniversary that evening. We made our decision but the manager who showed us to our table literally threw the menus at us then walked away so we decided to leave... More

It's always good when you find that there's a bi table reserved for a family party - well, at least if you can get your orders in before they do! We had a lovely lunch, relaxed tasty. Happy service and well cooked food.

The rice was good, not amazing, but decent. Service however was bad. I said I want water, and without asking if I'd prefer tap or regular or sparkling she opened a bottle of mineral water. I said I just wanted tap, she said sorry we don't serve that and basically forced that bottle of water on me.

We chose L'arros due to the warm friendly welcome from the owner standing outside (which we hadnt received from the more expensive restaurants in the Port area). There was a wide choice of drinks, and meals - my boyfriend and I decided on the seafood paella and we were not disappointed. Absolutely delicious food at a fantastically reasonable price, we...

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.
