This is a classic. Fine dining, good service. The terrace is private, and the area relatively quiet. There is attention to detail.

We had one litter of sangria de cava (quite fresh actually) one small plate of sea food (excellent) and two paellas for 80€. It was good, service was delicate and almost perfect. You can go there, you won't regret it !

DESPITE it´s huge fame, 7 portes doesn´t fit my expectations. Service is pretty good but food is just ordinary. For a restaurant so tradicional and so well- avaliated I expected much more. Seafood is its speciality but our paella was just reasonable. And the seaffod parrilla was even worse. I really thought it would be much better, and i felt... More

Beautiful location & Amazing service. Paella was descent. The best part of the paella was the fresh seafood. Sangria was a little bit harsh.

We chose this restaurant based on hotel's recommendations as well as tripadvisor rating. The service was good and friendly. Small seafood plate was excellent for a tasty starter. Paella for 1 person was enough for 2 persons, and it was really good. Was surprised to see a table (cover) charge, as haven't come across it in other places we dined... More

We were looking forward to going here for dinner. The man at the front taking bookings was very polite and friendly. The waiter that sat us at the table was very friendly too. That's where it pretty much stopped. We ordered paella as we had heard this was a great place to go for it. It was OK, and someone... More

If you like Paella or it's just you first time to try that dish, 7 Portes is the right place to be if you're in Barcelona. Try the Richman's Paella and wash it down with some cava Sangria and thank me later. Great set-up with very friendly and professional staff.

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.
