This place is a typical tourist trap. Expensive, in a nice location and with apparently some considerable history behind it. Our experience was a huge disappointment however. Food is way below average. I had a mediocre paella. My wife order the beef escalope with chips...More

Very well organized and managed Spanish brasserie of “institutional” nature. Most wait staff is part of the furniture and can be a little rough on the edges, which is part of the charm. We shared a great salad, T-Bone steak and desserts with a bottle...More

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in

Opening its doors in 1836 to begin offering over 150 years of excellence, Restaurant de les 7 Portes is truly the most classic of Barcelona's eating places. Here, you can enjoy the finest Catalan cooking in an intimate setting or in one of the spacious banquet halls, accompanied by Spain's best wines and "cavas" (sparkling wines) from the well-stocked cellar. The restaurant is housed in the Pòrtics d'en Xifré, a building declared a national monument and the first place in Barcelona where running water was installed. In 1942, it became the property of Paco Parellada, founder of one of the foremost dynasties of restaurateurs in all of Catalonia.
