Good food and atmosphere

We got to the restaurant very late (4:30pm) and ordered a dish paella for 6 people even though we were in 8. They were still happy to serve is and the food was plentiful yet delicious. Sangria is a must!! Rice cooked perfectly and fish was very fresh, although maybe a little chewy at times. It... read more

Looking for a cheap paella and tastes amazing? look no further! you pay almost half the price for a portion of 2 compared to other restaurants and you still get the same amazing taste of paella! simply amazing! also dessert, creama catalana is so good! isn't so thick so you won't be so full after your main meal. The atmosphere... More

This fish and paella restaurant is more upmarket than others we visited in Barcelona (white cloths on the tables and waiters in white jackets) but the waiter who served us was friendly and attentive and made helpful suggestions on our menu and wine choices. We chose seafood tapas to start, with Sangria de Cava, which makes a light and pleasant... More

My husband and I tried this place when we had to bring our kids to meet their friend at the Paral.el metro station. Earlier, I googled for restaurants near the station; Elche came up as highly rated. And true enough, the paella did not disappoint. I also like the interiors and service was fast. A "must" when in the area.

We had researched on TA the best paella restaurants. Couldn't get a table at some of them, but were pleased with what we read online about this one . The presentation of the food was beautiful, but I think the flavor could have been better. Nice service, lovely white tablecloth atmosphere, and the wines and overall prices were good. Maybe...

The restaurant is the best for when you would like to try valencian paella in formal restaurant. All of the facilities are vary clean and the service is gentle and calm. Not also paella but fish from local sea and desert are so nice.

We were visiting Barcelona with friends for a few days. As we flew in late afternoon we decided to eat in our hotel, Hotel Emilia, on the first night and, whilst we were enjoying a splendid meal and making the comment that we were looking forward to some nice food, an elderly local couple said that we should try Elche...

I brought my mom here when she came to visit Barcelona. I had paella several times in different places in Spain and this was probably my favorite. As a picky American I don't like to have heads and legs of creatures in my food and it was wonderful to have the option of having the seafood shelled for us. The... 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.
