Great location as it is in the Placa Reial. Grab an outdoor table and watch the entertainers. The location is on a corner but you are still able to witness all of the action. The seafood paella was delicious and actually better than a restaurant across the square that was more pricey. You can also order based on one person.... More

Have just had 4 wonderful days in beautiful Barcelona. Found Alex on the 3rd night and it was lovely. Set in a plaza with street entertaining just off the Rambles. Under new management and very good. My grandson particularly liked the squid!!! Well worth a visit. Look for it in the corner of the square.

My husband and i are spending 3 glorious days in Barcelona, we visited restaurant Alex on our first night and fell in love. The food is wonderfully authentic and we went from uptight to happy in one tankard of beer. Gorgeous, down to earth. A tranquil retreat from the bustling streets. We love you!

We had lunch here before going to the airport for our flight home. We wanted to eat tapas (food that we are very familiar with). We were tempted in by a very pleasant member of staff and the promise of a free glass of champagne (actually cava)! We sat outside on the terrace and our cava appeared immediately. The staff...

Selected this place for the location without checking reviews. The service was ok but the food - the food was AWFUL. So much so that we left after a few forkfuls. Do yourself a favour and don't eat here. It's atrocious.

Had a nice meal here. The food could have been a bit warmer, but, in general it was nice. The paella wasn't fresh and could have been re-heated, but not bad.

We were dragged to this place as soon as we enter the square by one of the guys who worked here but we didn't regret. Staff was very welcoming and paella was really good. So good that we came back here few days later and it was very good again. Price is surprisingly modest considering the location, you have fantastic... More

We had dinner outside facing the open plaza. The food was delicious mainly the sausages, the potato bravas, the paella and the salads. Mehdi was serving us and he was great !

Visited this restaurant in the corner of Placa Reial. Menu of the day was ok and very feasibly priced. Service was very friendly and accommodating although slow. There was a big group of us but no problem fitting us in.
