Nice, but the outdoor restaurants are a bit pricey with small servings. Travel to one of many seafood restaurants outside of the touristy areas

skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that
this area of town is the newly crowned technological

containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well
as a host of local and international high tech

We ate at Don Corado and enjoyed it while we stayed near there. It's on the Ramblas Pobleniu and yes it has outside seating but we didn'y think it was overpriced. There are several restaurants in the area. Have a great trip.
