This restaurant stands out in my 5 day stay in Barcelona. On one website this was listed has having a remarkable paella, which was in fact very good. But I also had their fisherman's soup with rice, which was really impressive. While in Barcelona one can easily find paella, which is quite good but has a narrow range of quality;... More

Probably our best meal while visiting Barcelona. Had the cod fritters, razor clams and paella. Fantastic wine list.

Have eaten here at various times of the day and it never fails to disappoint. Knowledgable and professional service, good wine list and the freshest seafood the mediterranean can offer. Keep your eyes peeled for the daily specials. It is a little on the pricey side but it's worth every penny

Good place on the beach for seafood ask for a paella, fideua or a bacalau. They do have indoor seating for the winter time. However, the outside seating is glorious with a view of the Mediterranean Sea and the beach that it's hard to go indoors if weather permits

The paella here came highly recommended by friends, as with the fresh seafood too. We tried the local fideua, not rice(paella) seafood - basically noodles cooked the local way. It was very flavorful and the servings were huge! Good friendly service. We ate inside (it was too cold for outside dining) and in hindsight it was better because when we... More

I have been coming to Can Majo for years and it is consistently excellent in food, service and wine! I tried their Gazpacho this year and it was far the best I have ever had, I also have their paella and went back on several occasions to try their other rice seafood dishes - all outstanding. Don't go anywhere else... More

Ate here last night with my family on our first night in Barcelona. I had initially made a reservation for 8pm but since I didn't get any confirmation email, I didn't think it went through. It was 9:30pm when we arrived at the restaurant and thanks to the Filipina maitre, we were accommodated. Cherry was great! She helped us on... More

Good location next to the beach, but average food for the steep prices. The paella was ordinary, the service was impersonal/indifferent as we were probably considered one time visit tourists.

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.
