Food and drink
Paellas in various forms are a point of pride, particularly the paella Parellada, with lobster, langoustines, chicken, squid, mussels, monkfish, artichokes and peas. If seafood and fish don’t rock your boat, try the roast kid or shoulder of lamb. Personally I don’t really feel the puddings are as satisfying as the savoury courses, but you almost certainly won’t have space for one anyway.
On the boisterous side of convivial, with its vast warren of dining rooms, Set Portes nonetheless preserves an elegant air.
Delightfully old school; polite, accommodating and rarely forgetful of the most insignificant request.
On the edge of the Pla del Palau, which more or less marks the end of the Born and beginning of Barceloneta.
Sadly there’s no menú del dia, and mains are around 15-25 euros.
