My first experience of picking my own seafood and choosing how I want it cooked! The hosts speak English and that's tons of help. They tell you what goes with what better. Located very close to sagrada familia - so apt to cover during your touristy sightseeing. The mussels and clams were just amazing! The only downside is they'll try... More

Even though it is located in the tourist trap neighborhood behind The Sagrada Familia, this restaurant is well worth a trip for lunch. The service was not fast, but that shouldn't be surprising for a restaurant in Spain. Picking your own seafood is way more fun than reading off a menu. The staff speaks English and is helpful. We went... More

The seafood ranged okay (fried rape) to excellent (muscles and shrimp), but the rest was chaos. Thirty minute wait outside the door and then you order cafeteria style from the counter of fresh seafood. No signs in English and very little English is spoken. So, you pick the seafood you want and hope for the best with regard to how... More

We were recommended to go to La Paradeta from a Spanish friend and the food was mostly amazing. We had to wait in a queue but it moved quickly and then we found ourselves at a counter with a choice of fresh seafood. We selected what we wanted and the server recommended portion size based on the number of people.... More

I think I preferred this location of La Paradeta. The seafood was fresher (moving!) and service was slightly better. The guy up front is great with the up-selling so be mindful. Razor clams, prawns, mussels, etc were just as great here as the Born location. It's within walking distance of La Sagrada Familia, go at an "off" hour for lunch... More

I went to La Paradeta 2 nights ago while staying in Barcelona. We had read the reviews so knew we would have to queue outside for a while to get served but this was well worth it! Lots of locals eat here which is always a good sign. We loved it! The seafood was so fresh and we tried a... More

Tried various seafood for the lunch here. They have fresh products and it's very busy place, popular among tourists. You need to know what to chose and do not expect that this is a restaurant. They fried everything together, so rather take simple things instead of taking more expensive seafood as the taste at the end will not differ:)

We stumbled across this hotel en route to finding our apartment on a back street. Later that evening came back for dinner around 21:30 where there was a short queue to be served. It was great to be able to pick the seafood fresh off the ice, you were presented with options on how you wanted each dish to be... More
