A passable choice for a budget-friendly paella in the sun, year-round, Can Manel is near the end of the main road out to the Barceloneta beach. Any time before 4 o'clock will do (It reopens again at 7 pm.) Arròs a banda (rice with peeled shellfish) and paella marinera (with seafood) or fideuá (with noodles) are both decent choices. The paella, prepared for a minimum of two diners, will easily feed three (or even four if you're planning to dine a
few more times that day).
