This one should be on your list for sure! Located on the hill of Montjuïc the view is unbeatable. Imagine yourself sitting on the terrace, watching over the seaport of Barcelona and the rest of the Mediterenean Sea, sipping on a glass of wine while the very friendly and professional service brings you the big pan of Paella. How would that be?
It’s a good idea to combine Martinez with a day on the Montjuïc. There is a lot to see and you can escape the hassle of the big city without going that far!
Paella is a traditional lunch dish, but at this place it can be fine with the sunset as wel!

This ‘Chiringuito’ is located at the beach of Bogatell. It’s a well known place to go, also for locals. This means that it can be usefull to reserve your table. Especially on beachdays it can be really hard to get a table! But well, that’s for a reason. They have a big, open kitchen, where you can almost be part of the process. Here you can see that making a real Paella is almost art.

They have really good sea food dishes which you can take as a starter as wel!

One of the all time classics can be found in the heart of the old fisherman neighborhood ‘Barceloneta’. This is the favourite under the locals. If you ask somebody who lived in Barcelona for over 5 years if they’ve been to Cheriff, the answer will probably be yes! And once you’ve been yourself you will understand. These delicious arroces are made with love and you can really taste it! All the products are fresh and the fishes are coming from the fish market which is just a few meters away. Fresher than this you can’t find them!
