Martínez, restaurant with panoramic view of Barcelona

With one of the best panoramic views over Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea, restaurant Martinez attracts a big crowd. But don´t you think it´s just because of the view, the paellas are darn fine as well!

The weekends are the busiest at restaurant Martinez, and now even more so as the temperatures are getting closer 20 degrees Celsius, blue sky and the sunbeams bright.
It´s as we all woken up from a long winter sleep and now we need to recharge our batteries in the sun while we savour delicious tapas and paella, matched it with a nice bottle of wine, of course!

The day of our visit to restaurant Martinez was amazing, clear blue sky, a fantastic view over Barcelona and it´s harbour (don´t forget to bring your camera because from here you will get many instagram friendly pictures).

We were a big group of 14 having our reservation for the second seating, we went straight for the paella, since we already done the Vermut in the park next to Martinez.
Normally the wait for paella is around 30 minute form the moment you place your order (but could be longer depending on the work load in the kitchen), so it´s always good to get some tapas to share before hand.

We decided to order 3 different paellas between all of us, Señorito (pealed prawns, mussels and fish), Martinez style rice with rabbit and chicken and rice with red prawn, this one full of flavours from the sea, totally my favourite!

It seemed like quiet a few around the table favoured the chicken and rabbit, but why go with the stream? I´m more of a red prawn kind of girl!

The paella took over an hour to get, as Martinez was jammed and before I knew it I had to run. The rest stayed and enjoyed the dessert and a digestif of orujo de hierbas (herbal liquor) as the sun settled behind Montjuic.
