By far the best meal I've had in Barcelona! It's a tiny place located in Barceloneta, and the waiters speak a little English so that definitely helps. We asked our waiter for his recommendation--to start we had the chipirones with asparagus and the fried artichokes with foie gras. Our main course was caldoso negro sepionet (bomba rice, squid ink, baby squid, in a thick broth). I don't think I've ever had anything so delicious! It's a bit pricey but worth every euro.
I had the pleasure of dining here on a business trip. The local Catalans couldn't wait to take us here for the seafood and gastro experience. The food was fresh and the service was very good, they even spoke enough English to make the Americans feel
welcome and part of their small family. I highly suggest skipping the pier restaurants and make this your destination in Barceloneta!
I have been to this restaurant multiple times for some of the best meals I have ever had anywhere. The owner prides himself on using the freshest local seafood and creates wonderful both standard (paella) and novel (platters and stews and amazing tapas) meals. Every item is carefully prepared and lovingly served. Superb wines to accompany each item. Should not be missed on any trip to Catalonia!!
This place is truly a gastronomical landmark in Barcelona!
When you walk in a see the who's who that have dined here for over a hundred years it sparks the curiosity. Once the drinks and the food come out you will know why.
Can Sole' takes dining to the level of an experience, beyond which you say it was a good meal, but instead after dining you think life is beautiful. A meal and an experience.
The service was great, very kid friendly even with my lil guy who's deep in the throes of the terrible twos. The food was traditional Catalan seafood impeccably done in an open kitchen within eyes sight. I had the Fisherman Stew which was one of the most amazingly pure & simple ways I've ever eaten fish. The Paella rice was amazing with the texture of the "bomba " rice highlighting the dish. If you've never had a Brut Cava Sangria I highly recommend it.
We stumbled upon Can Solé while looking for a restaurant in Barceloneta and could not have been happier with the find! We received great / friendly service and even though we were there late waiting for the rest of our party they didn't seem to mind. The food was delicious and ranges from tapas such as pan con tomate, Andalusian squid and soups to Mediterranean fish varieties and traditional Spanish rice and noodle dishes. There is also an extensive wine selection.
While prices are a bit high, the experience is well worth it for some delicious seafood and wonderful service in one of the best neighborhoods in all of Barcelona!
