We all are waiting for summer and sunny days to enjoy Barcelona at its maximum. Walking around the charming neighbourhoods, stopping in a terrace to have a drink while you enjoy the warm weather or taking a bath on the Mediterranean waters and sunbathing are some of the great experiences we can live while visiting Barcelona in summer.
When we talk about gastronomy, there is a special dish we can’t miss when we travel to the Catalan capital: paella. But, where can we get a proper dish of this traditional and delicious Mediterranean meal? Certainly, beaches of Barcelona are a good place, since there is a wide range of restaurants where we can find paella, but some of them are not the best choice because they are expensive and with poor quality.
That is why here we present some great places to enjoy paella in Barcelona. Take note!
This is one of those restaurants located in a privileged place: into the Barceloneta beach sand. This is the perfect place to enjoy Barceloneta beach and its Mediterranean cuisine. All in a vintage and fun atmosphere you can easily reach from this chic apartment in el Born.
It is decorated following a recycling philosophy. A curious data about its name is that it was Barcelona’s beach first name not so long ago.
Following the steps of the previous restaurant, here we have Vai Moana, the best place to enjoy Bogatell beach.
Inspired by Easter Islands, this gastronomic chiringuito brings a small portion of the paradisiac islands to Barcelona, where the sun, the waves and the food merge with the best chill-out style.
Whether sunbathing on our sun loungers or sitting on the terrace, your visit to Vai Moana is a gastronomic experience, but also a place of fun and comfort.
If you prefer a more traditional approach to paella in Barcelona than the two previously presented, Can Majó is your place.
This restaurant was founded in 1968 in the sailing village of Barceloneta, Barcelona.
It is a place managed by a whole family whose members are completely committed to provide the best experience to customers through great quality cuisine based on local products and more than 40 years of culinary know-how.
In addition to paella, the Caldero de arroz con Bogavante (lobster rice dish) and their variety of sea-based appetizers such as chipirones a la andaluza (Andalusian style baby cuttlefish), crayfish cooked in the oven or sea nettle are great options too.
