    Arugula salad is good, and one of the best Riesling wines I ever had. Great views of Barcelona landscape

    In a city where servers have a bad attitude, Pez Vela stands out both for its amazing service and delicious food. The Patatas picantes are amazing, and si is the butifarra paella.

    I am not really into paella but this one was fair enough. Spicy chorizo and shrimp paellas were the best.

    A big DISAPPOINTMENT! Had a seafood paella for two and it was barely enough. Besides that you could count the clamps and squids on one hand! So actually we paid €47 for some rice. Really a bummer.

    We came there for the paella but were very disappointed. We paid €44 for paella for two and got barely nothing. 5 clamps en a few pieces of baby squid. The sangria was very good though.

    Disappointing, worst meal in Barcelona. 44€ paella for 2 with 6 small shrimps, clams and a few pieces of squid, green salad made with cheap iceberg lettuce... A meal for birds with bad service. Avoid!

    Fun beach front restaurant with decent service and good food. Enjoy the tapas (get the small fried fish 🐟)to start with and finish off with the paella. Enjoy the beach vibe with wine 🍷

    Also a bit touristy. And you're paying more for the view than the food, but the paella here is also great.

    Lobster broth paella is good, galician octopus is fantastic, nougat ice cream is the way to finish an amazing meal! The coolest place in Barcelona! Not cheap though. 😎

    We ordered the prawns/squid/clams paella for 22€ each and the rice was good but very skimpy on the seafood. Equaled very expensive rice :(

    We had tapas and paella, nice and no fancy stuff. Service was good. Overall a nice restaurant kinda average, as I did not pick the bill, price value is a difficult call :-)

    Paella is more al dente, depends on whether you like that. Tastes good but the finish was too gritty for me. Their roast chicken is a solid dish. Awesome Apple tart too.

    Awesome place with high quality dishes, whatever you order it'll be good. Not all the staff is very friendly, and the prices are high. Worth for the location.

    Great atmosphere. I personally liked it better in the warmer weather, but was still amazing. Awesome paellas. Lobster in brothy rice was good, but a little messy. Desserts were good too.

    A favorite “chiringuito” (food stand) by the beach. For lunch, dinner or cocktails, it has the best view of the coast and serves delicious fresh fish and paellas. Read more
