In Barcelona (Spain), a restaurant is reinventing the enjoyment of seafood
La Paradeta offers high-quality seafood which is chosen by the customer at a market stall and then enjoyed on-site in a friendly atmosphere.
A stone’s throw from the Sagrada Familia, in an area packed with tourist traps and restaurants where the ‘home made’ label cannot be guaranteed, ‘La Paradeta’ restaurant really stands out.
This unusual restaurant functions in an exceptional manner. Customers are first of all presented with rich stalls of seafood and fish where they can make their choices.
They are then given an order number and can go and sit down in the main room until the arrival of their meal in the lively atmosphere of this unique refectory.
When a customer’s number is called, they go and collect their order on a tray using a canteen-style system.
In the maritime canteen of ‘La Paradeta’, the order of the day is fresh produce, self-service and a lively atmosphere. The concept is very popular with customers, who enjoy the quirky novel idea, as well as the guarantee of high-quality seafood, sourced locally and prepared to order on site.
On the restaurant’s Facebook page customers are given the chance to be tempted by photos of fresh catches, or give reviews of their culinary experience.
