Went for the Paella, very disappointed.

I, like others did my research as I wanted an authentic paella. Booked online. We ordered the Paella & the Turbot, the Turbot with caramelised onions, mushrooms & grilled peppers & was a big success. Unfortunately my Paella was not to my liking, I can only assume the Paella had been put in the... read more

Very cute Catalan restaurant with ambience and history. Service was quietly confident and recommendations were excellent. Food was of a high quality and portion sizes were ample for the price. I was overall very impressed with the restaurant and would recommend it highly to visitors to Barcelona.

I was looking for a restaurant that would serve authentic paella. Since I didn't want to get disappointed I did a little research and found the name of this restaurant on article that the Telegraph wrote about the 10 best places to eat paella in BCN. After checking out the reviews on TA I quickly booked our last dinner. We... More

Pitarra is long established, full of history and you will eat very well. It's off the tourist track but all taxi drivers know it. The interior is charming and tasteful and English is the staff's second language. Ask the Maitre d' politely and he'll show you the upstairs room where the original owner of the premises used to write and... More

It was Friday night and our large group wanted paella. We found this place and were amazed by both the food and ambience. It's a cavernous place, quiet and with high ceilings. The food was perfect, and the friendly staff served us free shots of an herbal liquor afterwards. This was by far our best dining experience in Barcelona.

My Fiancé and I came here on a recommendation of a Spanish friend. The food was traditional Catalan style, full sized meals and not tapas. We shared a seafood paella and a bottle of wine, which left us enough room for dessert each. It was a lovely experience with attentive service in a very charming street, surrounded by boutiques

Service was excellent, I want to make that clear. The food however left a lot to be desired. A pig trotter chorizo and wild mushroom rice should be very flavoursome and well seasoned. Mine though was bland under seasoned and well basically not nice. As I say the service and restaurant were both perfect; but at the end of the... More

On a short holiday the best food we had in Barcelona - seemed to go out of their way to cater for 5 of us (including a 3 year old) and loved the historic building, ambience and the service that felt personal without being intrusive. Each part of the meal and the wine was superb.

Totally worth visiting. It's a different place. Very quite and relaxing. You don't find people shouting in here. Its truly a good place for trying traditional Catalan dishes. Probably best to go to with family or as a couple.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. The service was the best i've seen all week in Barcelona. They even have free wifi so Im writing this review at the restaurant! As a couple, we shared the vegetable and goat cheese salad, meat and seafood paella, and the fresh mint and chocolate dessert. Great sangria as well.
