The building that’s home to Les 7 Portes, En Xifré, was built in 1836. At the time, it was the first Modernist building for rent in Barcelona, the first to feature indoor plumbing from the Spanish State, and the site of the first Spanish photograph, and advertising poster. In 1942, it was purchased by Francesc Parellada Riera, owner of the famous Fonda Europea of Granollers.

The establishment is home to a magnificent art collection, featuring lithographs by Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies, as well as a portrait of Fortuny, and works by Ramon Casas, Ricard Opisso, Mas Fondevila, Modest and Ricard Urgell, Aurora Altisent and Planas Doria. These masterpieces are just some of the restaurant’s collection of 400 paintings, which are featured in a series of rotating exhibitions displayed around the restaurant’s various rooms. Also on view are commemorative plaques honoring visits by Ava Gardner, Charlton Heston, Federico García Lorca, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and Pelé, among others.

Les 7 Portes helped to formally establish the realm of Catalonian cuisine between the years 1930 and 1970. It’s a mature, generous, sophisticated, and natural palate, built on the time-tested traditional roasts, barbecues, and paellas in addition to more nuanced dishes like casseroles, noodle soups, or Catalan-style tripe, and the site itself has become an essential dining spot for gastronomes and visitors eager to enjoy the rich flavors of the Catalonian capital.

It’s literally a timeless classic!

  • Un clásico de Barcelona

    Se trata del restaurante mas antiguo de la ciudad condal, y no por ello su carta está anticuada, más bien lo contrario ...
    Una de sus especialidades es la paella.
    Recomiendo en especial la paella “parellada”, se trata de una paella de pescado y marisco, pero con todo el marisco “pelado” (excepto media langosta pequeña, que da un toque de color) lo que te permite saborear el plato sin tener que entretenerse pelando gambas y demás crustáceos...
    Muy recomendable !!!


    Comida de alta calidad, en raciones generosas y preparaciones tradicionales, pero con toques originales; los arroces, deliciosos. Carta amplia y muy bien surtida, aunque no disponen de un menú degustación o de temporada. Precio elevado, pero no excesivo para la categoría del local. La decoración y el ambiente son muy clásicos y conservadores. El personal es amable, rápido y atento, sin "aprovecharse" económicamente a la hora de hacer recomendaciones de platos y bebidas. Excelente para quedar bien en cualquier invitación de compromiso.
