I read all the reviews and was a bit skeptical as far as the location. Not a problem at all. We walked to the restaurant and back to the hotel as well. No problem. The service and atmosphere were great. As others have stated " don't pay too much attention to the menu" the daily specials were great. Would have... More

Shhh... Don't tell anyone, as there are only 11 tables. Jordi sources the best quality ingredients and presents them very delicately on a plate. Wines you've never heard of and melt as you taste them. Very decent price wise. Will definitely be back!

Don't pay too much attention to the menu. The daily specials are outrageously awesome. The proprietor will explain each special in vivid detail and each special dish has a story behind it. There are more specials than regular menu items. My favorite restaurant in Barcelona. I have been there at least 8 times in the last 10 years and it... More

We chose to eat here on the basis of Tripadvisor recommendations but were very disappointed. There were very few other diners and these were business men. The waiter was pretentious in his descriptions of the food. Once he realised we were only after a light lunch without expensive wine and a 3 course meal, he lost interest in us. The... More

We have lived in BCN for about 6 months and have eaten at many restaurants including michelin- star ones and have experienced at La Estrella our best meal in BCN so far. La Estrella is a little restaurant located in a dark street next to estacio de Francia. Not too impressive from the outside but what a treasure inside! The... More

We accidentally turned up late for our reservation but were still welcomed (sorry La Estrella!). It was a sublime meal with perfect flavours all perfectly cooked from fresh ingredients. We let the owner choose most of the courses for us and there were no misses. It's true that there isn't much english spoken here but we muddled through with pigeon... More

Adjacent to the rail station, down a side street, the neon star marks a place where you get superb sea food. Dried cod dishes are a specialty and the Lovely Companion was very enthusiastic about her duck. Excellent and reasonable wine list, attentive, welcoming but professional service tops off a great experience

My wife and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and thinking about that special restaurant that would be just right for a celebratory meal. And so we planned a holiday that would land us in Barcelona, so we could return here - and we were in no way disappointed. This neighbourhood restaurant is a gem - wife heading up... More

You don't go to this restaurant for the view: there isn't one. Hidden away in a faceless side street, this is a wonderful place for marvellous food. Great service and a maitre d' who knows exactly which wine on his short, modestly priced, list will match your menu. The menu is really outstanding, and the staff evidently care about every... More

Staying in Barceloneta

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.
