Bienvenido a Los Caracoles. En 1835 y en lo más típico del Barrio Gótico, cerca de las Ram­blas de Barcelona, la familia Bofarull funda uno de los restaurantes más carismáticos de la ciudad con el nombre de Can Bofarull. Con el paso del tiempo, uno de sus más famosos platos le da su nombre actual Los Caracoles. Desde entonces, cuatro generaciones más de la familia Bofarull han sabido mantener las excelencias de una cocina popular de alta calidad.

Su bien ganada fama ha trascendido a todos los rincones del mundo, siendo una de las citas obligadas de todo aquel que visita nuestra ciudad. Se ha caracterizado por ser un lugar frecuentado, desde siempre, por destacadas personalidades del mundo del arte, del espectáculo, de la política y de las finanzas, atraídos no solo por el buen placer culinario, sino por el encanto de sus numerosos rincones llenos de historia.

We visited Barcelona for a week and ate at numerous restaurants in the evening for dinner. Since this was a once in a lifetime trip, we tried to eat at “upscale” restaurants that would offer traditional Spanish food, even if it was pricier than other options. After some research and looking at ratings we decided on Los Caracoles (which got 4+ stars online). We arrived 25 minutes before our reservation at 7:30 and were seated immediately but had to wait about 15minutes for bread and water, and about 20+ for a very hurried and rushed waiter to take our order. The waiter was very good and knowledgeable about food allergies! The food came promptly. We ordered the 1kg steak, lobster paella, fried calamari/squid, and other seafood dishes. After eating at several other restaurants in Barcelona that week, this was by far the WORST. The lobster shell in the paella was soft and mushy (I could break open the shell with bare hands) and the meat was brown, mushy, and soggy. The shrimp were similarly soggy and mushy. The fried calamari were similar to fried frozen calamari you could get from the grocery store. The steak was a grease pit and came out medium rare when it was ordered medium well. During dinner we noticed that the diners were primarily American/tourists. We felt bad that they had been trapped into a similar dining experience.

Did not honor open table reservation. Was a complete waste and ended up sitting at the bar for an hour until they sat us. There were plenty of available tables. I think they just didn’t like Americans. It was really frustrating that they were sitting people without reservations before us even though they had arrived after us. They should not be on open table as they do not honor reservations.

We would have loved this place rather than like if the wait staff didn't hit us up for a tip then complained at the amount. The food was very good. The service professional (exception mentioned), the food delicious. The prices were fair for the quality and quantity. The decor is homey and comfortable. A plus is that they're open all day if you're not into eating a later dinner. I'd recommend, just ignore the cash call.

Non abbiamo potuto mangiare.
Abbiamo riservato un posto per le 21:45, una volta arrivati al ristorante ci hanno detto che c’era da aspettare almeno ancora circa 30 minuti (si capiva che non sapevano quanto) e che dovevamo metterci in coda.
Inoltre appena entrati nel ristornate ci e voluto almeno 10 minuti prima che qualcuno ci considerasse e ci accogliesse.
A quel punto ho detto che andavamo a cercare un’altra ristorante.

Típico restaurante para turistas,comida mediocre y fría,servicio muy lento.
Te cobran hasta el pan,no quiero decir que no te lo cobren pero que por lo menos te pregunten si lo quieres,no que te lo dejen en la mesa sin más.
Es una lastima que locales con la solera de los caracoles estén en manos de gente que no le pone cariño a lo que hace.

The last time I visited Los Caracoles was 34 years ago. This December, I visited again and had a wonderful experience.
I have changed a lot in 34 years but Los Caracoles hasn't. Walking in was like walking in to a memory. My husband and I shared a lovely meal and the service was outstanding. Thank you, Los Caracoles!

We ate here while visiting from Los Angeles and were so pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the food, service and overall experience we had. The house paella is a must and of course, all the tapas were amazing. Don’t forget to try their chicken which they have cooking at the front of the restaurant!

Returned after 42 year absence with friends- such a favorite of ours back then and we were not disappointed. Excellent roast chicken and snails, good Sangria and wine but what we came for was the Paella. Interestingly all 4 of us remembered it differently- more of a yellow color and saffron taste. Now it is a darker color without the saffron color/ taste but still delicious. Loaded with seafood and meat- overall really really good and service , just like we remembered was excellent. Hope it doesn’t take us another 42 years to go back.

After seeing good reviews we were excited to go, but a bit wary when we first arrived as service at reception and by the guy that showed us to our table (who didn't even talk to us!) was pretty standoffish and poor. We were then sat down very close to another couple (it was obviously a table for four that had been split apart a bit) in a very quiet part of the restaurant and I started to think we'd come to the wrong place and was apologising to my spouse as it wasn't looking good.

However, our waiter was brilliant, very friendly and good service and the food was delicious! As we sat there longer it filled up and a band came in and brought things to life a bit. Very tasty wine, good food and eventually good service after the initial people.

During our week in Barcelona we needed a change from the tapas and fish, so we reserved a spot at Los Caracoles. The signature snails were excellent, and the waiter assured us that there would be plenty to share. On the way in we walked through the kitchen, and we noticed the fine cuts of meat on the grill. The T Bone was prepared perfectly, more than enough for two people along with a side of assorted vegetables.

Been coming to this restaurant on and off since 1976 and it has not changed at all ( which is great). It’s got an awesome atmosphere and ambiance and their signature dish, the “Caracoles” ( garden snails) is incredible and another one of my many favorites, the House Special Paella, is wonderful too.
And there is something special about having to go thru the kitchen in order to go into the restaurant. Love this restaurant.
