Today was my first time in this restaurant. A friend of mine from Australia wanted to try a paella and someone recommended me this place. It’s a nice one in a nice location. In the harbour front. In all this are there are lots of restaurants where you can have nice paellas and sea food. Quite crowded in a sunny day and during the lunch time (2-3pm for Spaniards), but worth it to wait.

We had a big and nice menu which included a 4 starters (salad, croquets, pa amb tomàquet and patatas bravas), paella, dessert and wine for just 19 euros / person. For the prince that we paid it was a very good meal. The paella didn’t have lots of seafood, but it was nice. Much better than the ones you can have in restaurants next to Las Ramblas.

You can also get paellas and menus for 25 euros / person in the restaurants around the port. You will pay more, but the paella will have more seafood flavour.

This was the paella that I shared with my friends. It looks good, isn’t it??
