14 years ago I used to go to El Paraguayo at least once a month. It was for me the best place to satisfy my meat craves in the whole of Barcelona, if not Spain. Unfortunately like so many other places, (and just like the city itself), el Paraguayo has turned into a place that can satisfy the generally unaware... More

The filet mignon was overcooked, the potatoes as boring as they can be, service was slow (and the place was almost empty) and the whole experience very dull.

We chose this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and we definitely did not regret! If you wanna get great meat in central Barcelona, go there. It's a place with a large offer of steaks and different meats. We chose degustation menu for 2 people. The very nice and skilled waitress brought a small oven with variety of meats and we... More

I know El Paraguayo for several years and it has always been one of my top pics when I want a good steak. Although the place looks tiny, dark and bit claustrophobic, you forget when the first steak comes. Top quality meat cooked in Argentinian style at very good prices. Service is good, too and the owner is very talkative.

Beef is my favourite meat. That being said, I've had my fillet mignon's, t-bones and chateaubriands all over the world. I consider the beef steaks I had at El Paraguayo as the best in my life. Every time I come to Barcelona, I go to El Paraguayo. Right now, as I am in Bucharest, just the memory of the taste... More

Couldn't agree more with those who say this is a hidden gem in Barcelona, one of the best South American restaurants I've ever been to. I went with a friend in February in that terrific week when the Mobile World Congress is held. After dodging the many tourists and visitors in the city we managed to find El Paraguayo which... More

Good choice and good food! Roasted meat is very well prepared every time, as yuka and stuffed peppers(my favorite). I like it also because its not so busy!
