Sunday afternoon, near Barceloneta, and living abroad for more than 15 years, passing near this restaurant, despite the mandatory building change after the Olympic Games beach clean-up, bring me good memories from my childhood, and this restaurant still has these memories on it, so with some friends visiting the city I chose to enjoy it again.

Classic restaurant, classic service, excellent seafood without a doubt, well cooked, fast service (it was crowded but did not feel like that) you can see that is not touristic (despite being on the most touristic place in Barcelona) and Barcelona families, old and young, are the customers, which is a good sign when you see locals spend their sunday lunch on a restaurant like this.

Food, in general, very good, sea food, local fishes, fresh, well cooked. Desserts more than good. Only downside, service. IT wasn´t as good as use to be, not even a single smile when bringing the food to the table, not asking if food was good (which is typical everywhere), too cold, that´s the reason I give a 4 and not a 5. This part should improve.

Came here to satisfy our deeper seafood longings, and were not disappointed.
From the moment we entered we were welcomed and seated, such a lovely day, and the menu had just all the right choices.
Our server was most helpful with ordering and especially the wines.
Enjoy!

We enjoyed an evening meal here with very fresh trunk of hake and monkfish. Clams for starters great and desert good. Only criticism was the price was a little steep for the food we had. Otherwise excellent.

Good restaurant for paella, recomended by the host we stayed at. It has a nice location on the beach, good interior and classy dexorated tables. We ordered paellas, calamari and croquettas. The paella was good, not WOW, but worth to taste it. My opinion is that it didn't cost the money-about 20 EUR per person. The rest if the dishes were delicious, especially the calamaries. However most of the waiters and the receptionist did not speak English and we barely got a table. The service was quite slow and not satisfacory.

There are different Cal Pinxo restaurants in Barcelona and some friends who live here advised me to choose this one, less touristy and more traditional than others.
The restaurant is simple and friendly, no frills, and offers a huge choice of fish recipes. Typical of Catalonia is surely the row stockfish, that you can taste in different variants, all delicious (try the Xato de Sitges and the Esqueixada). Another amazing recipe are the artichokes filled with a stockfish cream, unforgettable. But the menu temptations are really a lot and you can experience a large variety of local specialties without be frightened of being wrong: everything I tried was simply delicious, even a simple grilled sea bass and the fried artichokes. Limited but safe choice of local wines. Definitely a good address to recommend to fish lovers
