Xiringuito Escribà

Waterside Catalan dining

We say head to Xiringuito for paella and arroces (rice) – it’s some of the best in town and the atmosphere is buzzing, especially on a Sunday. When booking, ask for a sea view, although being at the back means you get to watch the choreography of the giant paella pan-handling chefs in action – and there’s some great tattoo-spotting to be done too. After dessert, go downstairs to their laid-back beach bar for a Szechuan Button-infused ‘electric mojito’ that buzzes like popping candy on the tongue.

Top tip:

Order the Catalan fideuà – while most restaurants require a minimum of two people for this dish, a smile back to the friendly waiters will get you a dish for one.
