We have been here two times and ordered meat, fish and seafood paella.The food was excellent, but the paella was simply awesome. Overfull with fish and seafood, huge clamshells, gambas, lobster. The best paella we ever had (and 17€ per person is a really fair price).

We go one star down for the location. Sitting outside is a bit loud at a main street. The service staff was all over professional, but maybe a bit cold.

Our hotel obviously had a deal with this restaurant because they sent us along here and told us they would give us two free shots if we name dropped the hotel. Fair enough.

The food was okay, the staff were nice. I'd go again. It's not the cheapest but you get a nice big portion.

Worth a try.

This was one of our favorite restaurants in Barcelona. It's located in the Montjuic neighborhood a short walk from Placa d' Espanya (just 3-4 stops on the Metro if you're staying near Las Ramblas). Our hotel, Crowne Plaza Fira Center, recommended it and it was a pleasant 3 block walk from the hotel. The service and food were outstanding. Sit outside if possible. Highly recommend the veal fillet (amazing!), salad and creme brullee for dessert. Oh and the sangria is the real thing. A bit pricey, but well worth it. You won't be disappointed.

After dinner walk a block or two and have drinks on the top floor of the former Bull Ring, now a shopping mall with restaurants/bars all with amazing views of the city.

I ate at this restaurant for a couple of evenings in Barcelona with my business colleague. The service and food was outstanding. We can both highly recommend the paella and veal fillet. If you are in the area, suggest you pop in and sample their food and service, you will not be disappointed.

Our hotel, TRYP Barcelona, booked a table for us, as it was my birthday on Grand Prix day. After a 15 minute walk, we sat outside and were waited on immediately. The manager looked after us, and recommended the veal fillet, and tapas to start. The meals were great, and as a final surprise, a cake with a candle, with manager and waiter singing Happy Birthday. I'm not sure that the waiter enjoyed the experience, but we did. Thanks for a memorable evening. Highly recommended.
