Visited here April 14/17. Very close to the Barcelona Cathedral and the Gaudi Exhibition Center next door.and essentially on the Placita de la Seu. The Plaza has several cafes and eating spots. Interesting street performers playing flamenco guitar near here. The service was basic here - the wait staff do not seem to be overly attentive. Coffee and snack were... More

Friendly staff lovely food. I had seafood paella which states on the menu is a minimum of a twenty min wait. Was really nice. It comes with mussels in their shell & full king prawns which need de-shelling. Not a problem for me at all. But if you want to keep your hands clean whilst eating this isn't the dish... More

This place is very close to the gothic cathedral. There was a set menu which clearly stated an 'inside' price of 12 € for 3 courses or a slightly higher 'outside' price if you wanted to do some people watching. We sat inside as it was a bit chilly. Our waiter was very attentive and the food came quickly. I... More

This restaurant is located near Barcelona's Catedral. Its red shades looked inviting, so we went in.You can sit there and watch the crowds in the cathedral square. I was there with my granddaughter who is vegan, so I have no knowledge about the fish or meat dishes of this restaurant. We shared between us a vegetables paella and spaghetti. Both... More

We ate here on the last night of our city break and had the set menu (nighttime 25€ inc 3€ to sit outside & a drink) It's set in a premium location next to the cathedral so that is reflected in the price in the additional 3€ to eat outside, but this was mentioned very clearly on the menu board...

I visited this cafe for breakfast. We were staying in a hotel close by and had noticed the nice outside seating at the side of the cathedral so decided to pay a visit during our trip. We found a table and were waited on almost instantly. There was no long wait for food, the food was lovely and a great... More

We stopped here to do a bit of people watching and enjoy the last of the sun. The cafe was busy but the staff were attentive. We weren't particularly hungry so rather than go for a large meal we decided to have some tapas from the long list available. There is a minimum order of 4 tapas and they were... More

We only had a short time in the Gothic Quarter and were desperate to eat and thought we should have a paella before we left Spain. This was the only place we could get an outside table - as we were able to take it from a group that were just leaving. It took some time to clear the table... More

My first day in Barcelona was awesome! After seeing La Rambla after settling down at the hotel. We went straight to see the Cathedral. At 7pm, I was already craving for an authentic Spanish paella. And viola! I saw the restaurant just behind the cathedral. We browsed the menu and decided to go for one set menu and paella mariscos.... More
