Barcelona: Restaurant Can Majó

Restaurant Cafe Majo is located in the Barcelonetta district of Barcelona. I promised Hubs before we left Barcelona that he would have authentic paella from Spain. Although paella is from the Valencia region, Cafe Majo would have to do. Plus the restaurant was a short walk from our hotel at the Hotel Arts of Barcelona. Since this is a beachfront restaurant, we got to walk alongside the beach and take in the late night scene. Dining at 10pm is the norm so after resting from our lunch at El Celler de Can Roca, I was up for late night dinner.

Crab hush puppies



Special: Seafood paella with lobster, crawfish, shrimp and clams



Mousse of Passion fruit and White Chocolate

Before settling for Cafe Majo, I read various travel/food reviews and found that Can Majo was a tourist trap. Fortunately, Hubs had rave reviews. He absolutely loved it. I guess paella in any region of Spain would beat anything from the U.S. In my opinion, it was ok. The ingredients were fresh and I liked the atmosphere but there's always room for improvement or at least we need to go to Valencia to have the real deal.
