Fantastic meal, had some lovely oysters, followed by fish soup and a very generous salted sea bass. Marvellous meal couldn't fault it, service excellent. Miguel was very attentive. Nice lively atmosphere and newly refurbished.

Juicy, flaky, and delicious. A house speciality! I highly recommend this dish and this restaurant! Owner, Oriol, was wonderful, got us a table on a very busy Sunday night.

Quite long wait, but I think it's needed to cook a paella properly, the paella was excellent, never eaten one better! There were many, from sea paellas to chicken ones. Staff very kind and helpful, they speak many foreign languages.

On my last night in Barcelona I specifically sought out some great Paella. My boyfriend and I came in to L'Amfora after reading all the wonderful TA reviews. Overall, the experience was quite the let down. On a positive note, the staff was very friendly and pleasant. The restaurant is also nicely decorated. However, the paella is certainly not of...

A friend of ours had been to Barcelona a few years back and recommended this place for their cod. We thought the food was good and worth the visit. We were a little surprised by the "pan con tomate" appetizer where you had to slice your own tomatoes (with no knife to do so) and rub the garlic on the... More

We went to L'Amfora after visiting museums in the area around 6PM ahead of most of the Saturday night dinner crowd. We were greeted cheerfully by Oriol who seated us quickly at a lovely table for two. After friendly banter with him and other members of the staff, my wife ordered lamb chops and I ordered cod Catalan style with... More

We were recommended to eat here by Ryan on our hotel reception and we were so glad we took his advice, It is a lovely unpretentious little restaurant and the staff are so friendly. The food was really good although we only ate off the Tapas menu there were plenty of other dishes on the main menu. We let them... More

I was really pleased with the amazing service we received here from a young gentleman. We had ordered a mixed paella (thinking it only contained fish/seafood), which I quickly realised also contained meat as we were about to dig in. As I don't eat meat, I wanted to confirm with the waiter that we ordered the right paella - I... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
