7 Portes was the type of restaurant with white tablecloths, quiet atmosphere and snooty waiters who could not be bothered to talk to the guests. We ordered traditional calçots as an appetizer. They are a type of large green onion which is grown in a...More

It was our second visit and a must stop on any future visit to Barcelona. It is a classy classic spot! Tuxedoed waiters and tables identified by the famous person who has previously dined at that table make for an interesting start. But the classic...More

I didn't know this spot until I read some recommendations for tourists. The price is relatively high and even at 3pm we had to queue up for a table, which proved it popular among all. I don't remember much about the food but the steak...More

The paella was decent but vastly overpriced. The quality of the seafood is mediocre. There was no burnt crust whatsoever on the paella, which is an integral aspect. Find a better place for paella. As other reviewers have said, it's too salty.

We went there for a late lunch. The paella and canelloni were very delicious. House wine is very good, staff and the ambience is worth to see

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

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.
