Reasturant is nice, but the Paella is very poor quality. It was all rice with very little seafood and meat. The Paella was filled mostly with squid as a cheap filler. Smallest lobster I have ever seen and only 1-2 small shrimps. Yes you could...More

I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. If what the waiter told us is true, lots of famous people (including Picasso) had dinner here. There are some great artwork on the wall and list of people who have eaten there. I ordered traditional paella and...More

It claims to be the best, but not having tried all the others I couldn't comment!! It was certainly very good, lots of choice, lots of seafood, very attentive staff. The walls behind each table have plaques with the names of people who have eaten...More

This restaurant has to have the best paella you can eat in Barcelona. We had a reservation at 1:30 pm and what would've been a 15 minute ride, turn out to be an over an hour ride because of huge demonstrations in Barcelona. When we...More

Prices are slightly on the high end for Barceloneta, but the food is good and the wine list well-priced. Paella is the draw, and worth the walk. If you're not careful, it will have to be worth the wait--it can get busy.

Paella is a must try menu, perfect cook and tasty. The best paella I had in bcn trip so far. Service is very good, staffs are friendly and active.

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

I can't remember the menu exactly but I think so. My sister had the fish of the day that was delicious and simple, the paella was great. They may have menu on website?

Opening its doors in 1836 to begin offering over 150 years of excellence, Restaurant de les 7 Portes is truly the most classic of Barcelona's eating places. Here, you can enjoy the finest Catalan cooking in an intimate setting or in one of the spacious banquet halls, accompanied by Spain's best wines and "cavas" (sparkling wines) from the well-stocked cellar. The restaurant is housed in the Pòrtics d'en Xifré, a building declared a national monument and the first place in Barcelona where running water was installed. In 1942, it became the property of Paco Parellada, founder of one of the foremost dynasties of restaurateurs in all of Catalonia.
