It is very rare that i write reviews of such, however this place is in simple, in two words "A Dump". Barcelona's night life amazes me at times, and the reason for such, is the service provided and the overall management, it is just so poor. This place is a mix of a restaurant by day and a club by...

on the beach. There are more clubs next to each other. The atmosphere was very nice and the fish was ok. The steak was more than rare as I heard from my colleagues. All in all give it a try.

Book and ask a place on the terrace (inside is pretty dark and sad). The food is very good. The Octopus, the sushi are very good and fresh. They have a funny chocolate to share (for 2). Count about 40 euros per person.

Staying around Paseo Maritimo area around the casino, you can't really miss this restaurant. At street level, there is a massive sign that is lit at night. The actual restaurant is one floor below on the beach level. The restaurant terrace faces directly onto Vila Olimpica Beach that can get very crowded on a good day. Given the hype surrounding...

Few days ago me and my husband had a super fantastic lunch at Shoko. 3 courses including dessert, a drink and coffee for the incredible 23euros only. The food was more than delicious. It was very well presented and it tasted as good as it looked. We like the service as well. All this, in addition with the beautiful beach... More

To start with the positive the food was very good! Our kids had the children menu (€11) which had good options and all freshly cooked.

Must say that I did not order food at this place as I stopped just to have a coffee during the day, but the service was nice and a location is quite enjoyable.

A nice club with expensive drinks, but much like the rest of the beach front. Bar staff are particularly unfriendly and I failed to see a single bartender crack even the slightest of smiles the entire night.

Shoko offers high quality Japanese and Mediterranean fusion cuisine. This huge restaurant lounge is right on Barcelona beach, next to Hotel Arts. The minimalist décor is modern and oriental and is based on Feng-Shui principals. The menu includes both exotic and traditional dishes based on a delightful combination of cultures and flavours. It is know for its great variety of main courses as well as its beautiful presentation and originality. All this is accompanied by oriental dance displays, martial arts demonstrations, Thai-Chi or other live shows. After dinner Shoko transforms itself into an exclusive lounge club where diners can enjoy the beach front terrace all year round. The restaurant is ideal for private functions and events.

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
