Again be prepared to wait for a table in peak hours. Simply prepared food but fresh and well presented. Steak with goat cheese, croquetas, chipirones, salads - all were good and inexpensive, as is the alcohol. A fun, casual and understated place to eat.

It is our second time at Bitacora after a friend recommended as we were in the area. Super chilled out place - do not expect anything fancy. Tuna tartare is a must and I think the bravas are super good too. We tried the cava...More

First of all, don't listen to the bad reviews. They are written by people who couldn't tell what good food is if you slapped them in the face with a slice of solomillo. I have been living in Barcelona for a year and in Spain...More

We were there as a couple. Prices were quite cheap, the tapas were large portions (especially the soy-ginger chicken). Service was nice and tried to offer us a good experience. Tapas that we can recommend: - soy ginger chicken - chicken croquette

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
