July of 1994, we opened for business in Barcelona under the name Shellfish; the first self-service seafood restaurant in the group at the Sants neighbourhood, close to the train station. This restaurant was the beginning of what is now known as Grupo La Paradeta. A novel gastronomic endeavour that already offered a unique self-service experience back then.
August of 2001, La Paradeta brand is born, observant of the original self-service seafood restaurant concept and living up to the cornerstone of our experience: the typical seafood stall. The layout of our restaurants is the same across all of our establishments: a seafood buffet for guests to pick their favourite choice. Subsequent openings at the neighbourhoods of El Born and Sagrada Familia cemented the brand’s presence in the city.
February of 2007, on the Carnival’s month, the first Paradeta outside Barcelona opens for business in Sitges. Located at the city’s pedestrian zone, at c/Sant Pere 24, this small and cosy seafood restaurant offers both locals and tourists a unique seafood experience, just a few steps from its famous beaches. Later that same year a new establishment was opened in Barcelona: La Paradeta Meridiana.
September of 2015 was the opening month of a unique Paradeta, larger and closer to one of the busiest areas in the city: the Passeig de Gràcia. Located at Consell de Cent 318, a few metres away from Casa Batlló, this Paradeta stands out due to its innovative design and large capacity, with a 500m2 dining area.
July of 2016 a new Paradeta opens at the foot of Montjuïc, in Poble Sec: La Paradeta Paral·lel. This is the seventh establishment of the group, located at one of the upscale neighbourhoods of the city, known for its entertainment and theatre offer, and close to Las Ramblas.
In its more than 20 years of existence, Grupo La Paradeta holds a track record focused on innovation, committed to customer satisfaction, quality, service, and an integration with the daily life of the cities of Barcelona and Sitges.
We thank all of our customers and suppliers for their trust.
