Juicy, flaky, and delicious. A house speciality! I highly recommend this dish and this restaurant! Owner, Oriol, was wonderful, got us a table on a very busy Sunday night.

They went out of their way to make our visit memorable. It was so good we went again the last evening in Barcelona. 15/05/2017. We had the paella again thanks Ros... More

I visited L'Amfora on my final night in Barcelona and I'm so glad I did. My waiter Vito made me feel comfortable and welcome from the very beginning. I was shown the fish tank in which the various crustaceans available on the menu are kept but I decided to have the sea bass which came highly recommended. Vito also suggested... More

We had a great dinner at l'amfora, the sea bass was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented with it being flambeed and deboned at the table. The Sole was equally as good and also de boned with expert precision. Desserts and liquores were top standard as were the waiters who could not do enough to provide a great experience.

The food was tasty, but definitely get the tourist vibe. The staff was very friendly, unlike other restaurants I went to in Barcelona. The seafood is live in a tank and you get to approve it before they cook it. Downside is that paella is about $20 euros per person and it's huge. So if you're only two people, it's... More

This is by far the most amazing paella I've ever had. And definitely the best in Spain. We were welcomed by an amazing accommodating and very friendly staff. But back to the food. All we ordered was the sangria and L'Amfora Paella. Sangria awesome (no gas :-)). The Paella was soooooo delicious. Must try! We eat seafood a lot livening... More

Nice restaurant with good food and service a little over the top. Everybody was very friendly and prompt. Did not like their red sangria too much, had way better ones. Pawlla was good, not the best but definitely above average. The prices on the higher side

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
