After strolling along the beach we stopped at La Guingueta for dinner. I had the mussels and enjoyed them so much that I had a second plate (they are an appetizer and cost about $7). My wife had a salad (which proved to be both...More

Straight up - go to La Deliciosa further down the beach - it is better. But, this place isn't toooo bad. They pushed the mixed tapas plate, but we wanted individual tapas which the waiter seemed amazed by. Yes, individual are more expensive but that's...More

Total tourist trap. The location is decent — right on the beach. Avoid the mussels. While in a tasty broth, they were so small we thought it was a joke. Lol. The sangria was decent.

This is by far the best beach bar in Barcelona. They have excellent, high quality food, a wonderful staff, and the BEST SANGRIA IN BARCELONA.

Was initially hesitant to try given the very mixed trip advisor posts. But hungry, two bar stools available and a cracker day with the sun shining overlooking the beach we decided to give a go. Service was wonderful - pleasant and quick - both the...More

A typical beach bar offering bar food – sandwiches and snacks - and great drinks. We especially enjoyed the red sangria. Friendly servers. Reasonable prices, especially for the location.

Had a taste of their delicious fresh juice. Refreshing to drink. Wonderful view right on the beach. Good service. Price ok. We only had drinks, no food. They have burgers though. See the photos I uploaded.

We ordered mixed tapas for 16 euro, a total disaster. When does a restaurant start to call chips and nuts for tapas? Wery small portion with some cheese and ansjovis, good tunamix though. Conclusion, take a drink or something but go somewhere else to eat....More

If you are lucky enough to find a free place to sit down you might wonder after about 20 minutes if anyone knows you're there. When they finally take your order it will be some time before it comes. Relax - you're on vacation in...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
