Description: Ultramarinos is the culmination of many years in the restaurant business for José Lombardero and Kate Preston. During that time they have trawled Spain in search of the best producers, farmers and wine-makers, eating in the most authentic tapas bars and yes, quaffing the odd cocktail, while learning everything they can about the country's rich culinary heritage in order to bring it to you. After establishing some of the city's best-loved restaurants: Taller de Tapas, Casa Delfin and Ajoblanco, Ultramarinos is their latest muse: the sexiest space on Barcelona's most famous street which brings together all the elements of the Spanish lifestyle that they know and love.

We booked this place on the fork app and this gave us 20% Off. We had the tapas which tasted delicious. There was a slight language barrier as only one member of staff could speak English however this added to the authentic Catalan experience. I highly recommend Ultraminos and would definitely visit this place again.

We went here based on TA reviews... the place was large and interesting but the food....... YUK.
I read, the best paella ever, clearly whoever reviewed it had never had good paella. We had the Ultimate seafood paella and I am being exact, 2 very small shrimp and 5 mussels..... and not good at all!!! In any case definitely skip going here! Upside was we had plenty of room in our tummy’s for ice cream and crepes on the street!

Dear Kristi J,

Thank you for placing a review on Tripadvisor, we really appreciate all feedback and are always seeking to improve.

We´re sorry you that you didn´t enjoy our paella as we only aim to please. We use a local rice from Pals, ideal for paella dishes because the grains don´t stick together and the rice doesn´t become overcooked. Our sofrito is the basis for our seafood paella; a rich combination of slow cooked onion, pepper, garlic, cuttlefish and tomato. To this sofrito we add the rice and our own flavoursome fish stock (prepared fresh daily in the restaurant with rock fish and monkfish), more cuttlefish, squid, king prawns, mussels and clams. We ´re really proud of our authentic freshy prepared paella and it is one of our most popular dishes, however, we do recognise that everybody has their own personal taste and it´s not always possible to please everybody.

Nevertheless, we´d be delighted to receive you again in Utramarinos on any return trip.

Best wishes,

The Ultramarinos team

Had a group of 8 to celebrate a birthday and this place was recommended by someone living in Barcelona.
It was great fun & our server was totally charming, asking if he could give me birthday kiss....of course. On both cheeks with right being first, then left he explained.
Found it slightly expensive but there were 8 people. Thanks Jae for picking up the tab, you are good son in law.

Six of us couples 4th visit to Barcelona. Sat having a drink in Ultramarinos outdoor bar on the ramblas, went the toilet and was wowed by the interior. Checked reviews on trip adviser. Good but mixed; took a chance. Booked a table immediately and had a fantastic evening. Food was amazing and staff couldn’t do enough for us. Inside decor very cosmopolitan and out there. Loved it. Would definitely recommend and will return if in Barcelona again!! No regrets in trying this restaurant. Negative reviews don’t do it justice. Didn’t experience anything negative. Staff were professional, attentive, welcoming and friendly.
