Can Majo, Barcelona


Our first day ended with a delicious dinner at Can Majo, located next to the beach at La Barceloneta.  It was not full the day we went but reservation is recommended.  Also they don’t open early for dinner service.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThey also have an outdoor area but it was a bit chilly for us.  Inside of the restaurant was lovely too.

First time seeing these at a restaurant – Barnacles.  So fresh & sweet that they were just steamed.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was a 2-person portion, didn’t realise it would be so big.  We weren’t able to finish all BUT it was the best paella I ever had! So good that we didn’t bother to try paella elsewhere.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Afternoons are really long at this time of the year as sunset is around 9.30pm and a lot of restaurants do not start dinner service until 8pm or later.

We managed to walk all the way down to Monument a Colon, Rambla de Mar and La Barceloneta. (it was a LOT of walking for the 1st day….)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
