Stylish, excellent service and food

The restaurant is really stylish, the staff very nice and professional, the food great. And the price is ok. Everything (but the menue) is kind of minimalistic, so the chefs rely on excellent quality of the ingredients. And it works! I´d love to eat here more often!

If it were not for the down-to-earth screen print T shirt designer's recommendation (at Nou132, Brualla Serigrafia up the street) we would have been intimidated by the white tablecloths and sophisticated vibe. But we were welcomed warmly even without a reservation and pleasantly surprised at the prices on the menu. Then everyone relaxed as we were treated to genuinly passionate... More

Stumbled along Elche on the search to find somewhere to have some real paella in Barcelona. We turned up without a booking with no problems. The restaurant felt clean and friendly, the staff were attentive and made some excellent recommendations. Then the food. The food was absolutely stunning. We had a seafood tapas starter (with the best prawns I have... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend for good paella along with being a nice place. Well it was in a not so touristy part of town which gave it added fun. It was white table clothes but not stuffy. The paella was great. We had two different types, with each large enough for two to three people. The one... More

This is a traditional restaurant specialized in paella and local rice food. It is not located close to the tourist spots but is one block away from Paral-lel metro station. The food is very well prepared and the portions are adequate. The price is honest and the service excellent. The environment is well maintained and the restaurant has two dinning... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
