We went for the Catalan cuisine which was excellent, and found an art gallery including Miro, Picasso and Dali, a Little Book of 7 Portes... a culinary & art delight!

We were recommended this place for the paella, but we were nothing disappointed. I had a paella with seafood and meat, my girlfriend had one with only seafood. Both were quite mediocre, a few shrimps here and there, half a sausage, a piece of ham......More

Husband wanted to try paella here, was recommended by a number of online articles. I knew the seafood in the paella was not fresh upon the first taste (other than the lobster). I finished my portion anyway. Cut our evening short, I was sick the...More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it didn't disappoint. We should have reserved a table as we had a 30 minute wait for a free table. But were permitted to sit outside with drinks while we waited. We had our baby with...More

Our hotel suggested this place and it was fantastic. My daughter and I shared the sea bass which was out of this world. The appetizers were also terrific. And kudos to the waiter who helped us find a wine as we don't know Spanish wines!...More

My daughter said this was the place students in town go when their parents visit. I should have trusted my gut when I saw that the waiters were in bow ties - I knew it was going to be very old school and stuffy. But...More

I strongly recommend having the hotel assist you with this reservation. I enjoyed the truffle cannelloni and my husband the paella which he found a bit salty. Good service and great wine selection.

Starched white jacketed waiters brining ordinary overpriced food to tourists. Paella salty, cannelloni mushy with floury starchy sauce. Could not get out of there fast enough

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

I can't remember the menu exactly but I think so. My sister had the fish of the day that was delicious and simple, the paella was great. They may have menu on website?

Description
Opening its doors in 1836 to begin offering over 150 years of excellence, Restaurant de les 7 Portes is truly the most classic of Barcelona's eating places. Here, you can enjoy the finest Catalan cooking in an intimate setting or in one of the spacious banquet halls, accompanied by Spain's best wines and "cavas" (sparkling wines) from the well-stocked cellar. The restaurant is housed in the Pòrtics d'en Xifré, a building declared a national monument and the first place in Barcelona where running water was installed. In 1942, it became the property of Paco Parellada, founder of one of the foremost dynasties of restaurateurs in all of Catalonia.
