Paella restaurants in the coastal town
Good place to eat fish, close to the beach. The atmosphere is very beachy, ideal to go with the family.
The quality of the dishes and the raw material is spectacular. We recommend the seafood rice.
We also loved the fideua and the coquinas, exquisite.
Sometimes the waiters are a bit stressed, and it tends to get crowded.

Avinguda Banys, 2
Mediterranean food with a personal style. Pet friendly.
The place is cosy with a terrace, the service is first class. If Estefanía touches you, you’ll see for yourself.
We highly recommend the mellow rice with cuttlefish, artichokes and black sausage.
As well as rice dishes, you can try Andalusian-style squid, “cabreados” mussels, Canadian lobster or kid’s shoulder, all of which are delicious.
Average 32€ . Wekly menú 30€

Passeig Marítim, 177 Bis LOC
It is not on the seafront like others, but it has its own charm, well located with terrace and parking. It has been open for years (1994).
It’s a great place to have a good time with the family and taste some of their paellas, such as the one with secret and prawns or the house’s own “Can Moyas”.
If you don’t want a menu you can have tapas, but for the price it’s better to choose a rice menu.
There are 5 diferents menús diferentes from 32€ to 57€

Calle Estrella de Mar, 10
Modern, beautiful and elegant restaurant, with different atmospheres and beautiful views of the beach.
Delicious menu, the cannelloni, the fish, the meat …. everything just right. Very good value for money and excellent service.
Highlights were the Fosbury paella and the lobster rice dish. The dishes are good, but if you eat a lot you may find them a bit scarce.
Average 35€. Menú for 30€ with 2 rices to choose.

Passeig Maritim, 299
Located right in front of the sea, a privileged location.
The quality of the products is brutal. The truffled rice is one of the best I’ve ever tasted.
For two years Solraig has received two awards for the best paella; third best paella in Spain in 2018 for its truffled rice and the scallop rice got in 2019 the second best rice.
Its cod has also reached the final of the best cod in Spain 2020.
The downside is the service, as good as the food is, it seems that sometimes the service doesn’t go along with it.

Paseo Marítimo 169
Of course, it is the most expensive, but it is worth it.
The place is very nice, pleasant, well located and with free parking.
We recommend the black rice with octopus and saffron-scented allioli and the seafood paella.
If you like the open kitchen, you can enjoy the experience of watching the dishes being prepared.

If you want to get wet, because there’s nothing worse than eating a bad paella when you’re on holiday in Castelldefels, so take note of this Barcelona restaurant located near the seafront promenade of Castelldefels.
We chose it for the combination of good products and price. It could just as well be Solraig or Cheche.
Food: The food was plentiful and very good, the rice dishes were spectacular. I loved the seafood paella parellada with cuttlefish, squid, monkfish and prawns.

The place: Very spacious and with several dining rooms. The terrace is open and the area is safe, the tables are well separated.
