We had been told by a stateside friend before we left that this was the best paella in Barcelona. We saved it for our last night's dinner before coming home.
It was NOT the best paella we had in Barcelona, and we tried many places. The best we found was at Rosalert. Lots of seafood, and lots of seafood flavor in the rice, as opposed to Las Caracoles, which had very little seafood, actually: a couple of crawfish (which I could live without - more trouble than they're worth), a couple of mussels, 2 shrimp, and a clam.
I will say that we enjoyed the gazpacho immensely -- that's what preserves the stars we give it. Outstanding.
Service was so-so, but we weren't in a rush, so leisurely was OK.
Dessert: coconut gelato and creme caramel Catalan style (actually creme brulee). Can't go wrong with those two.
