Traditional paella restaurants in Barcelona
Paella may not be the most typical dish in Barcelona, but we must admit that it’s a gastronomic treasure of national cuisine and it should be tasted. The city hides some spots where they make it really well. In this list, we reveal our 3 favourites.
This restaurant in Barceloneta is an example of the perfect executed Paella. It has been open since 1903 and uses local ingredients and the freshest, highest quality seafood. You can’t miss its lobster rice. And remember to take a walk on the beach once your meal is finished.
Terraza Martinez is located at the top of the mountain of Montjuic so you can imagine the beautiful views it has of the city. Although it was recently opened in 2013 it has already won locals and tourists hearts. Their secret lies in the ritual of cooking the rice. Here you can’t miss the black rice paella.
L’Estupendo is not specifically located in Barcelona but on the outskirts, in the neighbouring city of Badalona. With direct views of the sea, this restaurant offers the best rice dishes in the area. The rice they cook comes directly from the Ebro Delta which guarantees a perfect texture and bite. Once you’ve chosen the rice, let them recommend you a white wine with character.
