    We went here on a recommendation as our friend had been here as a larger group for his 40th birthday. I had left it late to look at availability on a Thursday and there was no availability until the Sunday night between 7-9.30pm. It was worth the wait for a few nights. My partner loves seafood and the choices were endless. Not so brilliant for me as a vegetarian however the quality of the burrata on the starter was the best I’ve ever had!!! The vegetarian paella was excellent with a lovely friendly service. Would highly recommend to all.

    Second visit to la Gavina. Why? Because the service and the seafood paella was so good. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Barcelona who wants a sit down meal with style and when tapas is no longer appealing. Service was attentive and generous. Would come back again if we had time. Highly recommend.

    The waitress was excellent but the wine waiter argued that we had selected a different drink to the one we clearly did order. It is unpleasant when staff argue with customers like that

    Comí una paella de secreto ibérico a la brasa, con choricito, morcilla y bolets. Un plato potente y delicioso a la vez!

    Overcooked calamari with soggy batter. Deep fried, burnt coquettes. Overcooked paella Ropey cheap steak. Poor fish dishes considering we were at the harbour. Wait staff were good humoured and attentive and tried to placate us with Cava.

    Very expensive, food was average with the paella way below average not to say the worst paella I have ever had. Outside is full of vendors and very noisy. The waiter was ok but he could have spared us his silly jokes. Overall not a good experience

    The atmosphere was “ok”. Being that it is on the marina, perhaps glass walls so that you could see out to the marina would be nice. The food was ok but pricy for the quality. We had a garden salad (good for the traditional style), fried shrimp, good size portion and taste, shrimp/fish paella was disappointing as it was not astounding or impressive and the sirloin which was smoothered in the sauce enough to hid the poor quality of the meat. The steak had a larger than normal percent of fat (1/2 of the steak). Needless to say, the price for the food / atmosphere were not comparable. It would be nice to also have a non-smoking outside section. Not common for Spain but suffocated by the tables all around us.

    La paella tenia poco sabor, la crema catalana nada extraordinario y la cheesecake no daba ganas de comérsela ni mirándola. Almuerzo decepcionante.

    The seafood soup and lbster salad were astonishing. The best ever The service and friendly personal attenton of the servers and the manager Manel was a delight. The view of the Marina from their glorious terrace was manifique and topped off a lovely seaside visit in beautiful Barcelona ❣️

About the restaurant

El restaurante La Gavina se encuentra en la Barceloneta, dentro del rehabilitado Palau de Mar. Por la cercanía del mar, es una gran propuesta mediterránea y marinera, fresca tanto por sus ingredientes como por su ubicación.

La carta del restaurante La Gavina desprende categoría por cada apartado. Empieza con unas Ostras gallegas, una Sopa fría de tomate con albahaca y queso fresco o unos Calamarcitos de playa a la plancha con cebolla dulce. Son maestros en arroces y mariscos y ello lo confirman con la excelencia del Arroz con bogavante y con su Mariscada.

Si prefieres descubrir la magnitud de las carnes y pescados entre los segundos, prueba el Solomillo de ternera con foie y oporto o una Dorada a la sal. Excelente bodega, salones interiores para eventos y una terraza espectacular de hasta cuatrocientos comensales son otros detalles que diferencian al restaurante La Gavina del resto. Volverás.
