Can Solé en Barcelona

The moment I step on Spanish soil, I start to crave paella, so I immediately tried to find a good place where I could enjoy it while I was in Barcelona. Many places were full and we ended up with a 9pm reservation at Can Solé. It’s a cozy, little restaurant just off the main street that runs along the beach front.


While I waited for my co workers to join me, I ordered these croquettes which were filled with JABUGO Parma ham and foie gras. Although it sounded good, I have to admit that the foie gras flavor was a little overpowering. The liver taste was a little more distinct. As soft in consistency as foie gras already is, I should have known better than to order it in croquettes where the ingredients end up being even softer and mushier.

The paella was solid. I can’t say it was the best I’ve ever had, but it definitely satisfied my craving. There wasn’t as much seafood as I would have liked, but generally speaking the flavors were good, the rice was cooked well, and the seafood was fresh.

Considering there were 3 of us, we didn’t seem to have much food, but considering the size of that paella pan, I think we had more than enough. If you’re in Barcelona looking for an intimate seafood restaurant serving a variety of dishes including paella as well other nautical options, I would definitely consider Can Solé. I think the fact that it is a little bit tucked away probably limits the potential for crowds.
