I was with 4 friends in this restaurant on a warm Monday in October: the location is undoubtedly beautiful, right on the promenade leading to the Olympic port, but for a paella for 5 people and 3 pitchers of sangria, € 50 per person seem really exaggerated!
In fact the bill was OVER € 250 total, since there was also 'bread' about 10 €, but I protested that we had not ordered any bread, so they cancelled it after a little discussion...

Barcelona is pleanty of great restaurants where you pay the right and eat well: this is definitely to be avoided ...

At the recommendation of my taxi driver, I went to this restaurant. I am so glad I did. The warm, inviting ambience began before we even entered the restaurant with a warm welcome outside the door. It continued once inside. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. This restaurant is definitely on my list of keepers.

The staff were great! Definitely authentic Spanish food! There is a table full of raw fish and seafood and you basically go up to it and pick which one you want to eat and they cook it for you. Also try their digestive liquor with dessert called Aguardiente de orjo Glave.

Had a great experience here. The waiter we had was very welcoming, attentive, friendly and fun. When we were asking questions about the type of seafood going into the paella he said wait here just a second, then brought out two platters of live seafood. We chose the exact lobster and clams, shrimp, and prawns we wanted in our meal. Probably paid extra for that part but it was nice knowing it was fresh. Great palla and sangria with a nice view. Got quite busy as we ate. Spent ?200 for special paella and sangria for 4 though so if your dining on a budget beware.
