After reading so many good reviews of the food here we thought we'd go a try the paella. We were thoroughly disappointed. Smaller portion than expected and did not deliver on flavour. Not worth what we paid. We ordered a vegetable side which took so...More

We ordered a set of 8 excellent appetizers. All very good. The ham we got was the best I have ever eaten. Fresh anchovies fantastic, typical local appetizers also good. The fillet perfect and the house wine kept the quality of the food.

This place is has excellent paella, it is a timeless restaurant with professional waiters. The only drawback is that it is a bit touristy, going in August is probably not the best time, but the food is worth putting up with that.

After waiting for a table we were served with what can only be described as the blandest paella with an aftertaste which left us feeling queasy. They charged us €12 for dry bread rolls and miniscule olives which we hadn't ordered but which we assumed...More

A fancy restaurant with polite staff. Very disappointed with the giant asparagus appetizer which was emptied into the plate from a jar! The rabbit was tasty but you can tell it's not being cooked on a paella ring. A good bottle of wine definitely helped....can...More

Consistent quality (which is high!) in a pleasant environment. I go there every time we want to celebrate with the king of rice dishes.

can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging

Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line

I can't remember the menu exactly but I think so. My sister had the fish of the day that was delicious and simple, the paella was great. They may have menu on website?

Description
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.
