One of the best paellas we've had in three different stays in Spain. We came here our first night in Barcelona after a long flight. Arrived without a reservation and were seated immediately. Great service; excellent food. We recommend it.

This was our second visit to L'Amfora as the paella here is decicious. This time we took our freinds along and they were suitably impressed. The waiter recommended the house wine not trying to get us to buy the more expensive on the menu. Its an excellent wine but this time we tried another of his recommendations and we are... More

Had 31 dec 2016 dinner here. We had new year eve menu. All the food was tasty and both red and white wines were good. Really nice was the beef tenderlion with mushroom sauce. The cousine is good but it is not supported by the service. There is a general lack of service, experience and kindness. If the service would... More

I love this restaurant! After visiting Plaza Espanya we came upon L'Amphora and we're so happy we did! Traditional, quality, Catalan. It's classy and yet the vibe is totally down to earth. We appreciated the beach/sea decor and warm atmosphere. We started with the Catalan Pan Con Tomate - olive oil garlic and tomato toast YUM! Grilled asparagus - delicious!... More

I don't know where the reviews are from. This is a tourist trap. Aid if possible. The food is not cheap and it is the same you get at the train station. Save your money and time.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
