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.

Good seafood paella with friendly service. Enjoyed the Sangria and complimentary champagne. Paella portions could have been a bit mor generous.

We spent the weekend in Barcelona and this was by far the best meal we had. The service was first class and the paella was the just the best. The menu has lots of choices and the sangria was great too. Overall I would give this 10 out of 10 and would go back on my next visit.

L'arros is a good choice as they have great outdoor dining that is covered. Their specialty is Paella and their is a huge choice. The food was very good as well as the service.Nice selections of Tapas.

I was optimistic about visiting this place even though many reviews had stated how 'touristy' it was. The food did not disappoint. It was a very tasty paella indeed that we felt was different and somehow better than all the other paella we had sampled in Barcelona. A plate of grilled vegetables was also very very tasty. We were there... More

This is a busy place with a mixture of clients (mostly foreigners, rest Spanish and Catalans). Not all staff understand Spanish well but quite many understand English. Paella costs around 18 EUR that is 4-5 EUR less than in near-by up-market restaurants. Paella with limited amount of seafood was not particularly tasty but tapas were tasty. Service was quite fast...

I came here asking the impossible: a paella lunch in less than an hour. I was seated immediately and they even took my drink order before I got a menu. The quality of the ingredients and the skill of preparation were incredible. The best shrimp I've had since moving to Europe nearly a year ago. Both the flavor and consistency... More

Great food, friendly staff, delicious Sangria de Cava, lively... In fact the best tapas we had in four days in Barcelona. We would have loved to try some of the seafood others guests had, that looked great too!
