I came here with friends. The service was excellent, the paella was the best I've tasted and the wine was equally excellent. Highly recommended.

I live already a while in Barcelona and I tried many paella restaurants, but this one is the best there is. Xavi puts his soul and love into the food and the service! I definitely recommend this place to eat good quality paella, you even...More

This restaurant is tremendously over-priced and the food is pretty disappointing. Don't be fooled by the fact that they don't have a list of wines (with prices) - this is their opportunity to sell you a completely mediocre bottle of wine for way more than...More

It's a must if you want to enjoy the best and original rice in Barcelona. Kitchen made with love. More than 200 references of wine and cava. You will feel like home.

This is a small, pleasant neighborhood place, a couple of blocks back from the beach, with absolutely amazing food. We had a couple of less-common paella-style 'arrossos' - pork and mushroom, and vegetables. They were both incredible. I don't know how they get so much...More

Checked TripAdvisor for a good Restuarant in the area as staying by Port Vell. Initially the restaurants on the waterfront come up, however El Xiringo in La Barceloneta showed up with good reviews. So made a booking directly on TripAdvisor which on arrival was confirmed...More

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in
