This place is a tourist trap period. Over priced, underwhelming staff and mediocre food. Wouldn't go back for anything- you can find way better in Barcelona.

My third time back here and it's as good as ever. Brought my 3 sons and they were all impressed which is no easy task. Paella with no bones or shells has to be our favourite. Sangria goes very well with it too.

Heard much about the legendary "7 Portes" which has been around since the dinosaurs walked this place. Have to say it let us down. The service was impeccable and the venue was heavy with authentic history but when you don't clean out the "poop chute"...More

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

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?

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.
