Very nice dining experience. The waiters were very attentive and informative about the dishes and the wines. Traditional beef and seafood paella was just how we like it with many different flavours although perhaps there was too much rice. The cannelloni were simply to die...More

Nice atmosphere and great service. Waiter was friendly and suggested a bottle of wine and ham croquets. It was awesome. Got a mixed seafood and meat paiella which was fantastic. Have a colleague coming in a week and will take him there for sure.

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

Absolutely Not. Never do it like this. It is a restaurant business to accept reservations at no fee.

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.
