Good paella, quite large portions. We took white version of sangria with cava but we did not found that to be too tasty. A bit expensive but considering the area I think it should be reasonable...

i went to this place based on good reviews on tripadvisor for a good Paella; however i am very disappointed!!! Paella was just o.k. and it had just too much oil with no flavor. I ordered a medium size sangria but the waiter brought us...More

Definitely over hyped. Rice texture was still uncooked and not from being burnt by the pan like most spots. Waiter even ask for a tip at the end of service so you know this spot is a tourist trap. The paella is not left on...More

We found this restaurant in trip advisor and booked it for two nights. Food was excellent and not over priced. Small and cosy restaurant and not too far from Arts hotel where we are staying. Paella was excellent.

Paella is from southern Spain (Valencia), so it is not easy to find a very good one in Barcelona. Tapas, si! Everywhere. But with paella, you have to look a little. Can Sole's seafood paella was very, very good. We had at least one other...More

We hadn't booked it, but we managed to have lunch there without reservation - the second floor was free. Very nice atmosphere and interior. It was my first paella, so I have nothing to compare. But it was wonderful. Having eaten it completely, we deserved...More

I was recommended this place by a guide for paella - as I wasn't sure if they would make a 1 person paella, and I didn't want to wander the streets alone and hungry and paellaless, I messaged them on Facebook to ask if they...More

I dined here with my sister due to the wonderful remarks I had read about the paella. So, we made a reservation and ordered a jug of sangria de Cava. It was good. I had a couple of starters but mainly was looking forward to...More

It is a restaurant already known to us but it surprised us: the prices had risen ostensibly and from a modest location it had gone to the temple of the marine cuisine. It is a little out of the tourist trade. It has two levels....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

Strongly suggest you reconsider. There are other better places. They're closed Sunday dinner and mondays.

Sorry I was away and just found your question, which I will counter with another: what do you mean by wedding anniversary? An intimate, face-to-face, tender duet, or a big crowded do? Can Sole is, IMO, not meant for crowds... More
