Really poor and slow service. Food (paella) was decent but not worth the premium price you pay. Great location and views of the beach.
Awesome night! Last night in Barcelona and we wanted some great paella! It was awesome and and the cava sangria was awesome too! Would recommend to anyone!
Chiringuito fashion delante del mar toda una maravilla. Arroces deliciosos y trato impecable
Food didn't have much flavor. Sangria wasn't great either, and very high priced.
Good food and service, paella de arroz negro is tasty but should have been a bit more cooked (al dente)
Nice atmosphere, good food, but nothing extraordinary.
Great good, great service, great ambiance! We came for the paella and left happy we went!
Very great atmosphere and food, got the paella negra and it was very flavorful and not too wet
Terrible paella and that’s their specialty... the good service couldn’t make the very pricey paella edible. It was disgusting.
Gentile Daniele, We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations and we regret that we have not been able to pass on our restaurant formula, which is appreciated by our local clientele as well as by customers from different parts of the world. Best regards!
Beautiful place right on beachfront, it was suggested from a friend that lives here in Barcelona. I enjoyed paella and grilled fish , they were both really yummy. My next stop when back to Barcelona.
Dear Gherardo, Thank you very much for your words, because these comments are what make the daily effort of our entire team worthwhile. We will continue improving in order to keep surprising you in your next visit. Best regards!
Location and service are so nice! the taste is good too. Love this!
Great food and exceptional service from our waiter Ferran. Thank you
The paellas we ordered (escriba specialty and the valencian) were delicious! Best i've ever tasted! The stuffed squid which is a christmas specialty was tasty too!
Great food, service and ambience!! I would definitely recommend it. We got two different kinds of paella. The desserts were also delicious. And ask for the dessert menu.
Excellent seafood, fantastic service and beautiful setting. I recommend the fried calamari appetizer, and the seafood paella. Great wine list as well - the syrah paired very well.
Excellent Food and good service - I come here every time when I am in Barcelona
The location is absolutely perfect! We made a reservation online and we’re excited for the paella. For the price they charge, we were disappointed when it arrived. It was prepared to order, but it was overcooked. The rice was burnt to the sides of the pan and very dry almost crunchy on the bottom. There was very little flavour. There were three prawns and only a few clams and mussels. I know that they can do much better for 21 Euros per person! We saw them preparing it to order so it definitely was fresh, just overcooked and the seafood portion should be more. The dessert was excellent and so was the service but I don’t think I would return for the paella (which seems to be the house specialty).
Dear Nicole, paella has many different variations as per individual tastes. At Xiringuito Escribà we are always looking to perfect our recipe which, although it may not be the best in Barcelona, continues to please many. In an attempt to get the best savour we use the highest quality ingredients and cook the paella as it always has been cooked, in extent, with a thin layer of rice so that it cooks evenly. The same applies to our stoves, which distribute heat evenly; this is why the dimensions of our paella pans are larger. The situation you describe comes as a surprise to us. We believe that quality and good service are essential aspects, and we take great care to provide them. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Best regards.
Excellent salads and fried fish. Paella was not the best I had in Barcelona anyway it was good. The place is cozy and easy going in front of the sea. Service was good, personnel very nice. The still water served was the worst water I've ever had in my life.
Great atmosphere, very helpful staff and a great setting. Our starters and paella was full of flavour. Good wine and definitely one of the best sangria we’ve had. One little negative if any was the lack of chicken in one of the three paella’s we had. Definitely a place to eat.
