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

The place is very tidy, has a very nice interior (and air condition!) and a perfectly efficient staff. The seafood paella was really good (slightly under the best i've eaten, and the portion was pretty small), the chicken and artichoke paella on the other hand was not worth its price. It contained bone and cartilage (pretty much unacceptable if the... More

We have been here twice. The food and service is exemplary. We stumbled upon it four years ago and returned a couple of weeks ago. The staff does not really hawk the place because there is no need. Locals come and lucky tourists come as well. Afterward stroll over to the beach. This is a place that I will visit... More

With 25 different types on Paella you are bound to find something you like here. No pictures of the dishes on display just authentic Spanish food. Skip the tourist traps and try this one.

Lunch by the harbour in the pouring rain... With a great Paella, good wine, at modest cost. Not a lot more to say, except highly recommended.
