Nice location on the boardwalk of the beach, with good fresh seafood, and a very good Paella. Great for a seafood lunch with a bottle of wine. The Set Menu is also very good value! Highly recommend for the food, but service is just average....More

My colleagues and I picked this restaurant at random, after walking across town in search of dinner. Our opinion was that any restaurant in this location (by the wharf area of Barcelona) would be above average prices. Our bill was 169 Euro for four, including...More

A very good paella alternative to a 90 minute projected wait across the way at Can Majo on a Sunday afternoon. Beautiful location on the beach. Very crowded, and so service was somewhat slow and confused.

I returned here with guests after many years. I remember this place as one of the better paella restaurants. The terrace outside is just fantastic. Sitting in the middle of the city overlooking the water is a pretty unique experience. What spoiled it for me...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
