Beautiful setting

The food was excellent, although a little pricey. Spotty service, but hey, there was no rush. The setting, however, is spectacular. Dine outside, and be prepared to relax!

Expensive but nice restaurant to have lunch by the see. Nothing to do with the more packed restaurants nearby. We went on business and had fish / paella, and all very good. Good options for starters and desserts as well. Tables inside are ok, a little packed but if the weather is fine go for the terrace with views of... More

I used to go eat there a few years ago when I had no family. I decided to take my husband and daughter there and I was very poorly treated by 2 ladies and and a man that were supposed to treat us well. On the contrary, they lied to us about availability of space once they saw that we... More

If you like seafood, this is the place to go. We weren't all that adventurous, but they had things such as spiny sea snails, sea cucumbers and anemones on the menu as well as the usual selection of fish, soups, stews, paellas, etc. Not cheap, but not expensive either. We paid €80 (£60 at the time) for a 3 course... More

Went to Can Majo specifically for the paella and left happy campers. Definitely the best paella we had in Spain. Other dishes were equally as good as the paella. Top notch service - staff definitely appreciated any attempt in speaking Catalan/Spanish. Only complaint? Paella and seafood boullabaise was a tad too salty; wasn't enough to spoil our meal though. Isn't... More

Some people say this is a pricey resturant. Maybe they are right, but it all depends on what you eat and the quality of the food. In Italy good fish resturants are quite expensive and this one, compared to them, is reasonable, especially if you consider the service and the food offered. The waiter was extremely kind and professional, as... More

We ate here to celebrate or sons' birthday and this was the nicest meal we ate in Barcelona. The service was fantastic and staff very friendly. The meals were huge and absolutely delicious. We ate and enjoyed lobster, seafood paella, callamari and chocolate mousse dessert. Drinks were plentiful and lovely. It was magical and the outlook is right on the... More
