    Botafumeiro: Great seafood and fish

    Seafood paella

    This is very busy restaurant and one of the best known eateries in Barcelona.
    Seafood is the main fare here, although they do have some meat dishes.

    The seafood platter is a work of art, if you want a hot dish then the paella is excellent. The Cava Sole is another very nice dish; fillets of sole cooked in a cava sauce with cheese and shrimps.

    Booking is essential

    Favorite Dish: Paella or Cava Sole.

    Botafumeiro: first class restaurant

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Sep 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is, probably (I would say without doubt), the most expensive (but first-class) restaurant in Barcelona. Botafumerio in Gallego language means the liturgical container that pours incense in the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral during the solemn ceremonies. They serve all the expensive Spanish delicatessen, from Jamon de Jabugo to Manchego cheese, from exotic seafood to the best Spanish wines from Rioja and Valladolid. It is a great experience to have dinner there if you can afford it.

    Favorite Dish: oysters and champagne!
