Restaurant, Spanish, $$$
Elche is not only one of the best places to eat paella in Poble Sec, but is widely considered to be one of the best arrocerías (rice restaurants) in Barcelona. The restaurant was opened by Andrés Iborra and Carmen Vicente in 1959 and named after their home town near Alicante. They brought with them their knowledge of traditional Valencian paellas, and soon got a reputation for being one of the best paella restaurants in town. Today, they continue to live up to expectations in their restaurant, which has since been given a sophisticated dining room.
