About the restaurant Xiringuito Escribà

"Just as the scribes of ancient Egypt were expert in hieroglyphics, and knew the secrets of calculation, the family that runs El Xiringuito d' Escribà are true experts in the art of good eating in each of its aspects and decoding with precision what is worthy of the best praise in Mediterranean cuisine.

Fideuá with mushrooms and asparagus, fried squid with cured acorn-fed ham and parmesan cheese and fish paella, are only some of delicacies that you will find here, topped with the views of Bogatell Beach, in a relaxed and informal environment ideal for any activity, together with unbeatable service.

Its decor follows simple lines, without stridency, a nice and familiar atmosphere which prepares you for the full enjoyment of a dining experience in all senses."

Food great! The Paella Mista was incredible. Two complaints:
1. there was lack of rice in the paella (part of the lower surface of the paella pot was fully visible)
2. 1h30min of waiting in front of 20 minutes boasted by the waiter. They gave us a hourglass to monitor the time to wait for the paella (very nice), but the sand ended and the paella was still missing.
At the end we ate and it was very good, but when we went to pay, no excuse from the head waiter or proposal for discount or whatever... what a pity...

We were so excited to come and celebrate our wedding anniversary today. However the Paella was just awful. Cheap ingredients, hardly anything but rice and slightly burnt. Terribly disappointed. The 2 prawns were mostly shell, the 2 tiny pieces of ribs were very fatty. There was just nothing good about the dish.

We had the Xiringuito seafood dish with shrimp, Norway lobster, grilled fish of the day, Andalusian calamari, fried whitebait, mussels, steamed clams & whole lobster and more. It was truly amazing.

The paella was a bit fishy. Baby squid w/jamon and fried egg was excellent. Also try the cava sangria!

What a terrific spot. The location is superb with a great view of the water and the beach. We tried a wide variety of items (including 1 paella, 1 creamy rice, the sardines, potatoes). All very tasty. To top it all off, our server was very helpful with menu choices and always around when we needed her but not over-bearing. This place has a really fun vibe and is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Barcelona.

Great views. Water and breezes. Nice staff. Paella was fair and I thought it would be great given past reviews. Guacamole excellent. Tomato bread excellent. Fish grilled excellent. Only disappointing thing was paella and that is what we went for

The location was great and our waitress was quite pleasant. The food was just ok. We enjoyed the views of Barcelona beaches right from our seat. I would highly recommend the atmosphere - just plan for an ok meal.

Enjoyed the experience and the food. Having spent two weeks in Spain before visiting this specific restaurant I can say that the quality was good, but not exceptional, and the value was les than I experienced elsewhere. Given the cost:quality balance, I would consider trying other places in hopes of getting similar quality for less cost. That said, I'm not certain I would be successful within Barcelona, or especially on the beach.
