Location and contact

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.

Very elegant looking restaurant. White tablecloths etc. The paella was good but not great. The local chicken dish was also good. Overall nice experience but a little expensive.

Perfect example of an overrated expensive restaurant! We ordered house wines, Pedron peppers, and two kinds of paella dishes. The paella was supposedly highly recommended yet AVERAGE at best. The seafood paella advertised plenty of seafood, yet the dish only consisted of two small shrimps,...More

Sorry for late reply. I always book while I am in BCN and they do not ask for deposits. If you booked from outside Spain could be possible.
