Outdoor dining, with stunning views over the old port of Barcelona.
El Chipiron, worth visiting already just because of its fantastic location. This restaurant is located near shopping centre Maremagnum at the port of Barcelona and looks straight out on the water. Especially when the lights are on at night is this exceptionally beautiful.
It is possible to sit inside and enjoy the view, but the real enthusiast will still take a seat outside. You don´t have to be afraid of the cold because the tables are equipped with heating stoves, which also adds to the atmosphere.
The restaurant is well known for its seafood, which they prepared very professionally, so it is not a big surprise that there is an rich assortment of seafood and paella to be found on the menu. It is also possible, if you want to relive the moment, to take food home with you from the restaurant. You don’t have to worry if you are not a real fish enthusiast, Chipiron also offers great half chickens or steaks with potatoes. Definitely something worth trying!
The service itself is friendly and helpful. Outside you'll get a warm welcome and you will be guided to a table, you don't even have to have a reservation. You don't speak Spanish? No problem! It might take a little bit longer, but the staff will try their best to give you the best service possible.
Sunny terraces by the sea, private rooms and cozy corners, make El Chipiron a great place to relax and enjoy great food.
