Opening its doors in 1836 to begin offering over 150 years of excellence, Restaurant de les 7 Portes is truly the most classic of Barcelona's eating places. Here, you can enjoy the finest Catalan cooking in an intimate setting or in one of the spacious banquet halls, accompanied by Spain's best wines and "cavas" (sparkling wines) from the well-stocked cellar. The restaurant is housed in the Pòrtics d'en Xifré, a building declared a national monument and the first place in Barcelona where running water was installed. In 1942, it became the property of Paco Parellada, founder of one of the foremost dynasties of restaurateurs in all of Catalonia.

Our taxi driver recommended this place. The ambiance is great. Unfortunately we ordered the paella. We felt the paella lacked sufficient seafood. The taste was just o. k. We ordered one for four. When we received our bill, they charged us $9 for the bread. However we didn't order it. They placed it on our table and thought it was... More

I will definitely go back there every time I will be back in Barcelona. One of the oldest restaurants in Barcelona, it's more than a eatery, it's an experience, a journey in the past at 1st class. Needless to say, the food is absolutely amazing...

We went here on recommendation of the Paella and the reviews on here were great. But please don't be fooled! This was the most disappointing meal we have eaten.... Ever! The Paella was bland, cooked like a risotto, stodgy and just not great. We had two salads, one was overdressed and one had no dressing... Obviously had to mix these... More

There is no question that this is the kind of restaurant tourists will find their way to. The service was outstanding, so was the price of the food for the quality. They had an excellent wine list. The food was not as good as we had hoped given the personal recommendation we were given. There are so many excellent restaurants... More

Meals were delicious , service was fine, we loved the place. We tried Risotto with seafood. Also the olive oil was perfect . They also sell olive oil in bottle , so we bought one. The only downside is the prices, a bit expensive.

We have developed three rules for eating paella 1) Don't eat on La Ramblas 2) Don't eat where they have a picture of the food on the sign board out front and 3) Don't eat paella on La Ramblas! With that in mind we had heard good reviews about 7 Portes. It was a short walk from our hotel (a... More

Lovely, traditional atmosphere, popular with both locals and tourists. Accommodates couples, groups of friends and families with small children. The service was very good, the wine satisfying, and the paella was flavorful but not outstanding. One of the restaurant's interesting features is the small plaques placed above various booths, noting who ate there. My partner and I apparently sat at... 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.
