Carrer St Carles has amazing restaurants - Somorrostro is the third one which I found outstanding on the same street within a few blocks (the other 2 are Maians and el xiringo) Our experience was outstanding from our reservation (had a large table for 10) to the end. Food was brilliant and service impeccable and super pro. Put in simply... More

Cosy little place with wonderful tapas at a reasonable price. Beautiful presentation with an extremely helpful wait staff. The people next to us had a beautiful paella. Fresh shrimp from Barceloneta was simply prepared to perfection.. Even though taking off the shell etc is laborious-- it was well worth it. The fish of the day was a white fish grill... More

Yesterday evening I had dinner at this very small but cozy restaurant. We ordered quite a lot of tapas from the menu and we have to say that we were surprised by the quality of the food and the way it was presented to us! Very good stuff! We had a total of 6 courses with two bottles of red... More

Real modern classical cooking from a young team. I'm not sure if it's an organic restaurant but many organic items. I eas a chance walk in. Great welcome. Artichokes stuffed with a chicken liver mousse and some cheese. Fresh house cooked artichokes peeled beautifully so the tender inner leaves and base remained. No tough leaves or hairy choke !! Well... More

We were tired of the "typical" local cuisine and looking for an eclectic, intimate restaurant with atmosphere. It was perfect. The menu changes often - they bring you a big board with the dishes of the day. You can order the dishes as a whole plate or as a half plate. We weren't super hungry. We had three half plates...

Went there with some friend of mine and we had a great time. Fresh and delicious Spanish tapas, fish Catalan cheeses and try their homemade sangria - beautiful. We invited two street musicians to ingnite the mood - sorry for that to the rest of the staff and guests.

We tried this restaurant after reading the feedback. We have been lucky to get a free table for 2 on saturday night without reservation. The restaurant is very rural, but nice! Food menu is presented on a board. We tasted several tapas: marinated partridge with figs, mushrooms croquettes, creamy rice with wild boar and mushrooms (twice), aubergines with honey. For... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood 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.
