Nice historic location, but the food is nothing special for the price. Service was a good standard. The tapas we shared to start were of average quality for Barcelona. The seafood platter below average. Nice tourist experience, good atmosphere and history.

Clinging on to past glories, the 7 Portes Restaurant failed to deliver. Service an atmosphere could not be faulted in this beautiful, historic building. The monkfish soup as a starter was okay, though lacking in monkfish it seemed mussels were the main ingredient used as...More

My experience of spain is that you can get great food in the most unassuming of places at a very reasonable price. Given the reviews for this place I would have expected a lot more, We paid £100 for half a bottle of wine and...More

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?

Description
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.
