The mussels were some of the best I have ever had and the grilled baby crayfish were fresh and delicious. Whilst we enjoyed the paella very much it wasn't something I need to have again. We had the Cheriff special and it had plenty of seafood but the simple way they prepared the appetizers was fabulous! Ok and a pet... More

Myself and a group of friends went to this restaurant on the recommendation that it served some of the best seafood paella in the city and we were not disappointed. We shared a selection of salad, mussels and Andalusian squid to start with which was more than enough for the seven of us with the mussels in particular being a... More

We went at 6 people and asked for the same paella. The paella was excellent however the plate was for 5... so we shared. I expected a big portion, (as annonced by friends) I had a normal/classic portion. If you go in couple you have a big portion. The waitress was not smiling and not so polite, difficult to speak...

I read all of the reviews on trip advisor and was looking forward to trying the paella. Unfortunately the service was terrible! We were the second couple there and our order was not taken until customers that had arrived after us were served first. It took about 20 minutes for a waiter to come over and that was only because... More

This is by far the most authentic and off the beaten path seafood and paella restaurant in Barcelona. The quality of all the raw materials (i.e. seafood) is superb, but the highlights are the paella and any of the "arroz caldoso" that you can find in the menu. If you are looking for something very different to all the tourist... More

For me, as a smoker, Cheriff remains best of restaurants of Barcelona due to its green and quiet outdoor seating. I've ordered lobster paella twice, with two different kinds of the beast. Both were very well balanced with local beer served there. I was disappointed from very beginning that they have only one unknown brand of beer, and in 3cl... More

Enjoyed the house special seafood paella very much. the rice had an excellent carmel texture. This restaurant was recommended by the host of Fuster apartments as having the best seafood in Barcelona. Check the website for times as it was closed on our first attempt to eat there.

Cheriff's is a great restaurant tucked round the corner off the main street. Food here is excellent. Great choice of dishes but you'd be doing yourself great injustice if you go for anything other than the paella. I would also recommend Cheriff's special rather than a lobster paella that a few other people have mentioned on here. The chef himself... More
