Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Can Ros is another reason to head to Barceloneta for a meal. With over a century of history behind the renovated seafood tavern, you’ll find haute cuisine with a down-to-earth spirit that really comes out in their rice dishes. For example, the menu boasts an outstanding rice with ‘capipota’ (calf’s head and foot) and prawns that’s slow-cooked with ñora pepper, and there’s an unforgettable seafood ‘fideuà’ (think paella with vermicelli instead of rice) with black chanterelles.

And it’s not just rice they do: dishes like the Santa Pau white beans with bacon are well worth the visit. If you need more motivation to get yourself to Can Ros immediately, there are also authentic tapas at friendly prices, personal and professional service, a set lunch menu where you can eat rice for one (often a minimum of two is required), and the knowledge that this is one of the few spots in town where they search daily for fresh local fish. The desserts are also amazing. Advance booking is recommended, and you shouldn’t even think of trying to get a table at the weekend without a reservation.
