just loved this place - a little different as its set up like a fish shop - choose your fish , its sent to the kitchen and they call you when its ready. Food was super fresh, staff were friendly and the restaurant was IMMACULATE. We really couldn't fault it - good value for money, great food and lovely atmosphere.... More

I liked the way you order your food at La Paradeta, you have good variety of choices from the fresh fish, prawns, squids ..etc. And once you make your order, take your number and wait a little to hear them calling it at the counter. Fast service, warm food, each dish after another tastes great! Recommended :)

This is one my favorite seafood restaurants in Barcelona! It never fail to please anyone that I introduce them to this place. Every time I am in Barcelona, this is one of the places that I have to go and have my seafood fix. I have been to different outlets, depending on the location the lines can get pretty long,... More

I've been standing in line for an hour, waiting to enter the restaurant. I've heard it was pretty good, but it turned out it was also extremely popular :D so, when you point your finger at something, they start to cook it. all the sea-foods are beautiful and fresh! but, it's not really a restaurant, it's more self-service type cafe...

We visited for lunch, a bit late perhaps and there was still a line forming at the door and the restaurant was full. Maybe because we were late there were some things already sold out. Nonetheless, everything we had was amazing, especially the fish soup and the lobster. The concept is really fun, you choose your seafood at the beginning,... More

You enter and choose the fresh fish from the counter. They will give you a ticket with a number. You can seat wherever you want. They will call you by PA to pick up your ready food from kitchen. Prices are popular, this makes restaurant widely used by turists. Fish is always fresh. Service is quite fast.

I personally allergic to not fresh seafood. We have ordered king prawn, cutle fish, calamari and clams. All of them are just so fresh and delicious. I think their seafood might just cured my seafood-allergy! We tried seafood in Vancouver, sf, Japan, two and this place has the best quality of seafood in terms of freshness and juiciness. Will def... More

I would come here when the business opens, lunch at 1PM and dinner at 8PM. You may encounter long line up but theirs adequate seating if you are among the first 50 people. Once you make it through the entrance, have someone in your party to hunt for a table, especially if you are 3/4 of the first 50 people.... More

We dropped at this restaurant after visiting Sagrada Famila - 5 mins walking distance from the monument. We chose octopus, lobster, crab, 4 prawns, calamari which was cooked fresh for us and tasted like what fresh seafood should taste like! We had bread and salad to go with it along with soft drink and a glass of wine. Total bill... More
