It was easy to find. Great service. Owners were right there. Very cozy. We could watch the action in the kitchen. One of us didn't eat seafood but the owners own a restaurant across the street that has more non seafood items and they gave us that menu also to order from The food including the salads were awesome.

This was recommended by our hotel and we really liked its relaxed local feel. We didn't book so were lucky to get a table as others who arrived after were turned away or asked to come back later. Tiny place but a welcoming atmosphere. The owners and chefs are right in front of you and they were welcoming when we... More

We were here just for quick meal during evening time. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We had a great time. Atmosphere was very cozy and food absolutely delicious. We ordered some olives which were really good. We also liked vegetarian lasagne and salad with caramelized goat cheese. Definitely worth coming again.

We were just walking past and thought we would try this place out and we were not disappointed. The waiter was very helpful recommending many different options which were all amazing. I thought the price was very reasonable with the skipjack definitely being the high light. I will hopefully return one day to try more menu items.

Everyone thinks they know "the BEST Tapas place in Barcelona." I've seen endless lists of places to eat, but this restaurant has great service and tasty food. So much so, we came back 3-4 times in 10 days. We didn't find many better places to eat during our stay. Not cheap, but not expensive.

I think this restaurant is overrated. The atmosphere of this small place is nice and cozy, casual and overall you can get a good meal if you know what to choose. The dishes combine traditional catalan dishes with "nouveau" ingredients and styles. Portions are awfully small (at those prices they could really give real tapa sizes) and for some dishes... More

Went here for dinner as we were staying close by and it had good reviews on trip advisor. We went with a crab tapas and the paella; the only thing that i can say is that all we could taste was salt.. also the quality of the seafood was very poor and for over 40 euros for 2 just not... More

I had booked a night before I visited. The booking system was really easy and efficient. The food was good at affordable price. One dish starts from around 2 € for an oyster, until 11 € for the grilled mixed seafood. The staffs were so kind. They served me well. Lovely and great restaurant. P.S. Try Chocolatisssmo. It was so... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
