Saturday lunch with the locals

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...

2 of us popped in here for dinner one evening having wandered around the port area looking for somewhere that took our fancy. We chose L'arros as the owner standing outside was friendly and welcoming and they had a large selection of meals to choose from. At dinner they offer a whole menu, a set meal with a great selection... More

When visiting the Port area of Barcelona, pass by all one expensive sidewalk cafes and cross the street to L'arros. Excellent Paella, prices and service. There is inside and outside dining. Everyone is friendly and welcoming including the other customers. One of our group admired the dish of a diner at another table and he insisted she try it! Sharing... More

We saw that L'Arros had great reviews for paella, so we went expecting some good food. Up until that restaurant we had been disappointed with paella in Barcelona. As soon as we arrived, we had such a warm welcome. The staff never stopped smiling and offering as much help as possible. Any of our requests, from pictures, to the heater... More

Traditional paella lunch, recommended by the hotel. Dined outside with a view of the harbor. Server was very attentive, spoke English and provided us with English menus. Reasonably priced ~60 Euros for paella, salad, bread and two drinks each. Excellent meal!

Recommendation from the hotel,could be risky but not here. On the port a busy thoroughfare for people watching,greeted by a really friendly chap,made some recommendations for food and wine,both of which were brilliant (and not the most expensive options!). House cava good and tasty.It's a port so fish has to be the choice,paella fantastic. Staff could not have not been... More

I went there with my family, we were quite hungry and L'arros seems like a good choice based on the reviews (plus it was opened quite early). Ordered 2 dishes, steamed mussels and seafood paella. The food take extremely long to arrive at our table. We tried the mussels, it was cooked well but the ingredient is not fresh. Mussels... More

Doing a tour of Barcelona and happened to drop into this little restaurant down in the harbour area. We walked past about ten very expensive restaurants before noticing L'Arros across the street from the harbour. We sat outside under an umbrella with views of the water. We ordered the Menu Dia which included a choice of starter, main and dessert... 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.
