A taxi driver recommended this place to us. We went for lunch and the restaurant was a bit fancy. A bit lack of atmosphere but the paella was pretty good.

We went there to get Paella, but we could not order for one and you have to order Paella at least for two dishes, although it was written that you can order for one. The Paella was too greasy and did not worth that amount of money

My partner and I visited Elche for dinner on the day before we were due to leave Barcelona. The restaurant was clean, with nice decor and attentive waiting staff. The food was lovely, especially the monkfish which was bursting with flavour and came as a very hearty portion. Not the cheapest restaurant, but worth a visit!

Despite reading some of the more negative reviews, we decided to give this place a go as it was close to our apartment. When we arrived, it looked great, especially the decor. The waiters are all dressed in white however we got the impression that this place was trying to be too fancy for what it actually is. They weren't... More

This place looks the business from the outside and and inside and has all the waiters dressed in the obligatory white jackets. Now on to the review. One to avoid, even if recommended by your hotel. We had the meat and seafood paella which they took away to serve up , despite us asking them not to. What came back... More

Our host had recommended Elche for paella so we promptly headed there. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is quiet and lovely, we had not made a reservation, but it looks like you should. We had the most delicious paella with chicken and sausage and a pitcher of sangria. Both were out of this world. Literally if I even think... More

We visited Elche for dinner as it had been recommended for paella. We made a booking earlier on the day. When we arrived, we found the restaurant crowded, but our table was waiting. The food was great and the wine that the waiter recommended was very nice. Overall, a good experience. We may return later in the week to try... More

Went for paella on recommendation by our airBnB host and timeout review rating it in the top 10 for paella in Barcelona. No atmosphere, terrible service. Ordered seafood paella for two. The waiter showed us a pan with paella and then brought it plated. Not sure it was the same paella! Mine came with two shrimp, several tough squid rings... More

We had a great dinner here the fish was just fantastic and the service matched the quality of the food. The wines were fantastic and very reasonably priced.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
