We went to this place on the recommendation of our hotel and tripadvisor. Very nice restaurant, touristic but not only, as can evidence the numerous population of local guests. Famous guests used to visit this restaurant (as a memory the restaurant labelled the seats to their names). Excellent paellas (the one recommended with rabbit was better than the lobster one...

We chose this restaurant for our Christmas Eve dinner. The food was wonderful, the staff attentive, and the atmosphere festive. Would definitely recommend. Oh, and loved their Anniversary wine!

The food was poor and tasteless. The service was lousy. The waitress who was serving us needed to take a shower. The price was not that high but the food was so tasteless that every money paid became a waist.

One of the Barcelona famous places. Paellia is the specialty for which they are well known. Completely disappointed by the starters and the famous paellia. Wine was ok ,with choices. I think they have become part of the tourist attraction and that has an obvious consequence on their kitchen.

Definitely would not recommend. The dishes tasted boring and too salty. Prices are too high for the quality one gets.

We dined at 7 portes after watching an interesting review and production about their "authentic" Paella on YouTube. With much anticipation, we checked it out for an early dinner, by Barcelonan standards, while we were walking back to our apartment in Barrio Gotic (this is hands down the most superb enclave to stay in - we loved it). The staff... More

We were recommended this restaurant for award winning, authentic paella. Despite being extremely busy, they managed to accommodate us and we enjoyed their classic paella dish with crusty bread and a bottle of red wine. Excellent food and cute chintzy feel to the surroundings. It ticked our 'rustic meal' box. I would recommend booking in advance as it took us... More

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.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
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 the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
