been there with a colleague following a suggestion

immediately we found the atmosphere was mainly for a romantic dinner and not for just a dinner with a friend of colleague, but we're highly impressed from the menu and especially we've been suggested to definitely try the best paella in town

clearly visible from outside it is not a cheap place, but we managed to enjoy our dinner: waiter welcomed us warmly and friendly even if we were not so well dressed

they brought a small appetizer without asking and that is the only bad experience: some kinda meat-mousse to put on bread, which we had immediately since we were highly hungry
actually I kiked out the morning after - just the mousse

then we had some marinated fish to split as appetizer, and finally a paella with a bottle of red wine

they brought the paella still into the pan just to show, then came back with two cleaned portions (without shells nor bones): definitely so good

80 euro, suggested for a romantic night

I was in Barcelona, a long weekend and we like to go nice restaurant near by hotel, but it wasent at all nice, aunpleasant experiencend the service was poor.
price was high so I think that food and service is also high, but not at all.
the restaurant and staff gets a bad review from us, sorry, but we are disappointed and it was like throw money at the window. 75.50 euro

Elche provided the most delicious meal I have had in a very long time. I visited Barcelona with my teenage daughter last month and, on a friend's recommendation, we sought out Elche after a hard day's sightseeing. It was worth the additional sore feet.

We had both had squid-ink rice with artichokes, washed down with sparkling cava wine. It was quite wonderful. The decor is upscale, but they seemed to have no problem with welcoming visitors in jeans. The waiters were quietly attentive. The meal for two set us back by 50 euros, which was excellent value for the quality.

The Elche was recommended for its paella. We were not disappointed, the paella we had were good, not greasy and a large portion, We had the black paella and seafood with chicken paella. The paella was presented to us before served which was a nice touch. The service was great from the time we walked in to the time we left.
