We came here on our Lonely Planet recommendation - atmospheric decor and friendly service. We both had the burger which was good if not exceptional. The restaurant was busy and clearly popular with locals as well as tourists. Bear in mind, that like a lot of places in this city, there is a supplement to dine outside. I do find this bizarre - you are getting the same food, from the same kitchen, served up by the same staff - I'm not sure this is worth the 10-15% supplement. Having said that, they are not alone in this practice - practically everywhere we went charged extra for the "terrace" Enough already!!!

Lonely Planet recommendation - and a poor one.
The Paella was easily the least appetizing I have ever had...
There is history here, but the food needs updating....

Dear KevinNFK,

Thank you for your critique - all help us to improve!

At Casa Delfín we stay faithful to a very traditional paella recipe which has served us very well over the years. However, we accept that it may not always be to everybody´s taste.

We´d be delighted to receive you again.

Best wishes,

The Casa Delfín Team

The Sagria was average and the food was poor quality. The service was nice and helpful. We wouldn't chose this place again

...so good we went two nights in a row!
If you're staying centrally - particularly in El Born - relaxed and friendly Casa Delfin is well worth a visit whether all you need is a light snack (tapas or a delicious Spanish take on ham, egg and chips) or something more substantial from a fine fish selection. Sea food paella (no chorizo! ) washed down with a chilled white wine did it for us. Hope to return soon...

After strolling around the neighborhood and looking at several restaurants and menus we decided to try this place, because we believed that they offer nice dishes. We chose two tapas: mussels and patatas bravas. These were just fine. For the main dish: one of the house specialties, mountain lamb, which was average and rather fatty. I had the salt cod with chickpeas, which was somehow fine... Service was ok, but the prices are rather high given the food quality.
