We came here tonight on the recommendation of a friend - and after reading so many positive reviews; we can now say why! Well done everyone at 7 Portes. We will return!

We loved the old style brasserie furnishings and waiters' uniforms, the white table cloths and the "we are serious about this business" vibe. The waiters are professional and rapid. The food is great. The "cassoulet de moules marinières" was to die for; for those who...More

7 Portes was recommended by our hotel as the oldest tapas restaurant in Barcelona. It is fabulous! The food is outstanding, the service is very good and the surroundings (the restaurant itself) is amazing old world.

How is this restaurant not ranked higher for the city of Barcelona? The food was outstanding and the service may have been better. Is it the cheapest? No, but not all good things come cheap. Conveniently located and the restaurant has an excellent buzz. My...More

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

I can't remember the menu exactly but I think so. My sister had the fish of the day that was delicious and simple, the paella was great. They may have menu on website?

Description
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.
