We ordered the 15 euro per person paella, and the waitress was super rude and pushy. She said 20 minutes, we waited 40 minutes, and the table next to us who ordered 20 minutes later got theirs at the same time, so she probably let...More

Great service, food and wine. Only negative thing was the big shrimps in the paella that you have to clean yourself.

Easy quick experience, can be a bit busy and crowded. The paella is very good and filling. Don't plan to do much after :)

Opened since July 1, 1942, Bodega Joan is one of the oldest restaurants in Barcelona and always has belonged to the same family. Joan's grandfather, actual director of the local, was the founder, and since then,it passed from father to son until today. Specialists in Spanish food and catalan food. Here you will find the true experience of a catalan restaurant bar, where we support the FC Barcelona with pasion and where the movement of people and joy are our dishes every day.
