We ordered seafood platter after TripAdvisor reviewers high rating of L’Amfora; however our seafood platter which had a mix of clams, mussels, linguistines and shrimps were overcooked and dried. The matre’d was wonderful and promptly apologized and asked the kitchen to make another platter for us. He also gave us one comp beer. The seafood here is very good and the service is outstanding! This matre’d deserved a generous tip

My fiancé and I had some relaxing moments in this restaurant. Being on vacation for 5 days in Barcelona, we spent 3 nights at this restaurant. What made us come back? The best Paella and Sangria we have tried so far. We were pleasantly impressed by the nice setting of the restaurant, the relaxing atmosphere and by the waiter's and the owner's hospitality.

These are their specialties and they are good. They serve two and it is a lot of food.
This was a good family restaurant as well bc it is one of the very few open around 6 for dinner near the fountains. They took care of two families with small children easily when we were there.
Our waiter Guillermo, was excellent. He gave really good recommendations, and was very attentive. We saw him fillet a whole fish for someone else and he was very good.
CJ was working with him and between the two we could not have asked for better.
This is a bright, lively place.
We wanted to see the fountains after and this worked perfectly, although early for dinner in Barcelona.
