Why We Love It:
Though Valencia claims true ownership of this classic Spanish dish, there are some delicious options for paella in Barcelona as well, and Martínez is one of our faves. Far from the tourist areas in the city center with scenic views of the port, this popular restaurant has been in the business of making classic paellas for years.
- We ordered a classic paella, which included traditional Valencian chicken and rabbit. Plus pan con tomate, olives and vino.
- Good paella is expensive no matter where you go, but just be advised that you’ll pay a bit extra for the views here.
