1. Re: Can Majo or Kaiku for authentic paella?

Hola Cct!

I'm a big fan of Kaiku but have never tried Can Majo. Kaiku does offer a few rice dishes using smoked rice (arros del xef is very delicious) but there are also some with non-smoked rice. Here's a link to a menu that is a bit old.

Kaiku is not a fancy place, nor is it overly expensive. Paella must be ordered for a minimum of 2 people, which is pretty standard.

DE Doffcocker has suggested Can Ros nearby for cheap and cheerful.

Along the street that leads up to Kaiku on Passeig de Joan de Borbo, there must be a dozen plus restaurants.

Have you looked at the Top Q on paella?

Btw, even if you journeyed to the home of paella, Valencia, you would probably find different types of authentic paella. Don't worry too much about this. Just enjoy.

Yesterday I ate a paella on the sunny terrace of Can Majo. Delicious ... one of the best I have eaten in Barcelona. Service very friendly.

Hola Suzy!

The OP asked for an indication of prices too. Here's a link to Can Majo's menu with prices. Could you have a quick look and confirm? Many thanks.

Price of the Paella 14 €

The inside of the restaurant is also very cosy and very clean.

Regarding Can Majo: I was just looking at a local site that says this place should be avoided at all costs. I had some delicious paella close to both these places at Su Qu Et De L'Almirall - 28 euro per person.

cct,

Those kinds of comments have been circulating for quite some time. Have a look at La Mar Salada and Can Ros too. They are owned by the same people.

I went again on Feb 14th to eat a Arroz Cazuela al estilo Pescador 14,85 €

It was delicious and tasty, As starter small very fresh scallops. Desert una crema catalana ( also delicious). Very friendly service. It seems they are specialized in special sea food. They had Percebes, which I would like to try next time.

Every one can have a different opinion on a restaurant but I can say we had a great dinner . Nobody is perfect, it can happen the cook was not on a good day when some people did not have a good experience .
