how much was your meal per person? did you go to botafumeiro only for the paella? i am trying to decide between botafumeiro and comerc 24, knowing both are upscale but very different.
We were in Barcelona for a few days last fall and a local we met walking up the street recommended Botafumeiro. It wasn't an inexpensive dinner but we loved it. The waiter was a sweet older man who spoke limited English. But somehow we managed to communicate well enough. It may have been the copious amounts of wine he poured. The had the most unbelievable jamon. It melted in my mouth. The seafood was great too but I don't remember what we had. I didn't think it was tourist trap'y at all.
i will be in barcelona in may... will i need reservations for this restaurant? Looks yummy. Any other suggestions on retaurants and things to do?
