My son and daughter had a meat type paella and me and my wife had seafood paella. Now get this.... both of them tasted THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!! It's a real difference, and the taste isnt good... More

We were hungry and we were finding a good restaurant, me and my family. It looked packed which attracted us. The first problem was that there were almost paellas only. The food was T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E. Trust me dont go there. Dont know why this is rated 4/5 i wouldve rated it 1/5. We ordered 3 paellas, all different ones. My son... More

Went here on the recommendation of a friend and the food was excellent. We were slightly dubious at first as we waited inside for a short while until a table came available in the outside area, but it was worth the wait! We had the tempura prawns for starters which we're amazing. We each had a paella for our main... More

So we went to this restaurant on the basis of other member's recommendations and it was OK. Starter if fried squid was really nice, as was the desert of coconut ice cream. However the main of paella from the set menu was terrible. There was more bone that meat or fish combined. Steer well clear. Staff were arrogant and disinterested.... More

Choosing a restaurant in Barcelona is difficult - the choice is bewildering. This place has a good menu of the day. We didn't have it but the table next to us did and it looked excellent. At only €14.95 for three courses, it's a bargain. We had a selection of tapas which were ok and a very nice seafood paella.... More

We had dinner - tapas and paella on a quiet Monday night. I thought the paella was too dry and we paid a lot, Pleasant waiters.

We ate here twice during our stay in Barcelona. First was for lunch and the place was packed with locals. huge selection of paellas and a decent selection of tapas. We tried the Tuna & Pea Paella for lunch and came back the next night for the seafood paella. The Paellas are the right size for two as a light... More

The restaurant was busy with a good atmosphere; the menu is quite extensive. There was a mix up with our order so when the paella was served, one had been kept warm for quite a while so was a little stodgy. Prices were significantly higher than the gothic quarter but the paella was less enjoyable. Overall, it was OK but... More

We chose this resturant because it had an English version of the menu and the man on the street wasnt too pushy, like some can be! However, am very glad that we did. It was a busy Saturday evening trade and a lovely evening so we chose to sit outside. We were seated quickly and brought menus. There is a... More

We we're recommend this by the receptionist at our hotel. The sea front is awash with restaurants so any help choosing is a bonus. My wife and I had Paella and Sangria. It was excellent. We do not profess to be Paella or even food experts but the staff, the ambience and food were ideal for a night out in... More
