This lovely restaurant on the Harbor in Barcelona makes some seriously good Paella. We had the Paella Marisco with prawns, cuddle fish, octopus and great Soccorrat. The Catolonian bread was a great addition.

Went there for a couple of tapas and drinks for lunch. Food was ok but lacked taste. Even the extra salt and pepper we poured on it did not do it much favour. Been served a tray of bread from the start - which we did not order but guessed it must have been complimentary. Did hardly consume it as... More

Thank you very much for writing your opinion. In Spain we usually eat with bread and is usually offered, if the customer does not want bread is never charged.

Out with some work colleagues for a little sightseeing. Decided to eat out, restaurant looked good so we went for it. Paella was superb and lots of it. Staff looked after us well. Two separate parts so if you want to eat outside best to ask.

I had the fish and chips and it was the tastiest fish I've ever had! My boyfriend enjoyed mussles which he thought were great too. Cocktails are excellent and the restaurant service and table views upstairs are great :) only thing I would question is the prices, but excellent food so worth it :)

We had lunch there one day and dinner another day--the tapas are excellent--they do a very good job cooking the seafood. The dinner we had was the lobster paella--it is not cheap, but worth every penny-was beyond fantastic

Shame that this is run by Monchos does not have the service standards or the food quality of its other restaurants in the group. This is my third visit to the restaurant over the years, as it has lovely winter sun that you can find only on their huge terrace. This is based on this visit, but all previous visits... More
