Choose your own seafood at La Paradeta Sagrada Familia


If you're a seafood connoisseur this is the place for you.

It might not seem like much of an ‘insider tip’ to send you to an established franchise but in a city like Barcelona even the chains deliver top quality seafood. La Paradeta is for confident connoisseurs – the kind of people who aren’t intimated by pointing out a frozen, boggle-eyed crustacean and confidently demanding it boiled or fried. 

Because that’s what you do at La Paradeta: it’s up to you to pick what you want, how you want it cooked, pay and wait for your number to be called. It’s a relaxed atmosphere loved by locals and travellers alike and offers a little insight into the way modern Barcelona residents treat casual dining. The closest La Paradeta to the Generator Barcelona hostel is the one in Gracia. There is also one near La Sagrada Família—a perfect lunch or dinner -stop after all those steps.
