I visited this place because I read an article online about where to get the best "bombas" of Barcelona which is a local specialty. A "bomba" is a potato croquette filled with minced meat. This croquette is served with salsa brava and alioli. I had...More

The magic of this place is that though I don't know a word in Spanish I didn't feel myself alien here. We quickly bonded with the waiter and he was super friendly, communicating with me between the languges :) The atmosphere is homely and the...More

This is a gem of a spot in Barceloneta. It's a line up to get in and it's cash only, but worth in on all counts. The food is fresh and the service professional. Look around - the servers are older professionals. The grandma still...More

I think the formula they have is perfect-they only work on few dishes, but everything is fresh and of good quality, especially the fish that comes from the nearest market and you can taste it! A friend who lives in Barcelona took me there. We...More

La Bombeta is an absolute "must stop" visit while in Barcelona. Located by the harbor and within walking distance of the Gothic Quarter, you can't go wrong stopping here. A favorite by the locals as well as tuorii like us, make sure to show up...More

Love and missed the grilled sardines, octopus (poupous). The potato balls was good but no deep impression.

It was standing room only, but we found a space at the counter window standing outside. We went for the bombas after having them the day before, but enjoyed a few more dishes on our second visit. The padron peppers with sausage were perfectly cooked...More

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

I think is no way to put the bicycle near the restaurant. I dont know it has changed the situation since. But the street is strait.
