We went to Can Mano on our first night in Barcelona, and loved it so much we went back on our last night. The seafood is wonderfully fresh and delicious - order the red mullet (at €8.5 they were one of the most expensive things on the menu, but worth it) and some sardines alongside a delicious chorizo tortilla. Word of warning, make sure to get a salad, otherwise your arteries will feel very clogged - nearly everything is fried which is delicious but maybe not the healthiest option. Wash it down with a bottle of the house wine at €4.5 and you'll get a great meal for two for around €20-30 (depending on how cheap you do it). They also have some combination plates, which you can just about see in the picture - featuring things like squid, chips and tomatoes on one plate. They aren't printed on the menu, though, so you'll have to translate the menu on the wall if you want to go for a really cheap option.
The restaurant opens at 8 for dinner and it fills up immediately. There is always a queue outside but just get a beer while you wait. Despite this, we never felt rushed by the waiters, and I would definitely go back here if ever in Barcelona again. No, it's not the most glamorous of locations, but there's still a great atmosphere in the place, so don't rule out romance entirely.
