As one of the most popular seafood restaurants in Barcelona, Xiringuito Excriba restaurant offers smashing fresh seafood, deeply sumptuous Spanish paella, and tasty tapas served in a vibrant beachfront setting. This sparkling seaside gem charms with its romantic outdoor terrace, located in Barcelona’s Olympic Port neighborhood, overlooking one of the city’s stretches of white sandy beach. Founded by the owners of one of the oldest bakeries in Barcelona, the family-friendly Xiringuito Escriba has flourished under the auspices of master chef Joan Escriba. Arguably the star of Xiringuito’s menu is Escriba’s heavenly seafood paella, whipped up fresh from the ocean with plump prawns, mussels and fish cooked with saffron-seasoned rice. The vibrant open kitchen will give you a front row seat of the chefs in action. For starters, try the light and crunchy Andalusian baby squid or the crispy prawn croquettes. In addition to its legendary seafood and surf-and-turf paellas, Escriba also offers exquisite seafood dishes, including grilled coastal red prawns, white tuna stew, and a tasty soupy rice with lobster. Mouth-watering desserts such as homemade cakes and tarts complete this highly enjoyable casual dining experience. Bookings advised.
