Don't get me wrong, some of the dishes were okay. The mussels Marinara was really nice. The ham we had was blah. Paella was okay. Hoping that it's way better at other places. Took ages for that to come out. Service was lacking. We had only sat down, given the menus and not even a minute later someone was there... More

This restaurant sits along a huge, broad walkway full of tourist most of the time, and like most other restaurants there, someone out front tries to lure people in to eat. Don't go! LOL. Maybe on another day, or maybe some different dishes, but the things we ordered were not good. One friend had bacon and mushroom pizza, and we... More

The restaurant is situated close to the beach in a 400 metre run of restaurants, offering cuisine from around the world. We opted for Spanish - a fried selection of seafood Squid, prawns, and cod - all breaded and fried - and pretty greasy. 40 Euros for this dish was a bit overpriced but it was ok to soak up... More

We had our lunch here. The food is very good and not too expensive. The waiter is very helpful and welcoming. A very simple restaurant + good food is a must try when your in barcelona. We had a pleasant experience.

Went there for lunch. The service was good, fast and the prices were as indicated in the menu (with a terrace 10% extra supplement). We ordered sea food pasta and a burger. Both had significant sizes, an overall good value for the price we paid (25 € in total, for food and beverages). Improvements could be made at the toilet,... More

Thank you very much for your letter! We are grateful to continue working. Right! ... The toilets are not the best in the house. They are small and bad deal ... but if they are separated by men and women ... Another thing is that people respect it. ;) More

Seeing the menu made us choose this restaurant that has low prices for the area. Now I understand why : service was so poor (the waiter never knew which plates we had ordered and which the table next to us had), food was terrible, so much oil in all the dishes, and I couldn't touch my paella. There's also a... More

I respect your opinion ... But bad start when criticism is directed staff ... Mainly because it is the best we have. From there ... little more to say. Everything oil? Is not able to play the paella? I can only wish the best of luck! More

We stopped at this restaurant to have a lunch returning from the beach and we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a 3 course menu and all the dishes were very delicious. We had Mussels Marinera, Paella Mixta, Grilled fish and Crema Catalana. The service was very polite and helpful.

A 5 minute walk from the Barceloneta beach, this place offers fish and seafood. We had the big seafood plater and the dorada fish which the waiter recomended to us. Everything was great and tasty. The price is also reasonable (40 euros for a huge seafood platter). Nice location overlooking the port. Recomended.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
