Booked a reservation on the day to eat here for dinner. 3 choices...2 courses for 25e, 3 courses for 30e or tasting menu for 44e. Decided to go for 2 courses as we were overly hungry but it was fantastic. I have eaten in Michelin star restaurants although this is of course not on that level but nevertheless the food... More

We visited here after reading about it in a Top 10 guide. It was a little difficult to find initially but were pleased we did as the food, wine and atmosphere was lovely. You can tell that the chef and his staff really care about providing a good service and original food. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back... More

We had delicious food here - what a find. August is such a hard time to to find a table since everyone shuts down for holidays. We had great food, good service and tasty wine. We went twice and found that service and ambience gets lost if you sit in the back room.

My husband and I had a late lunch here (they opened at 2:00p.m. and we showed up a little before 3:00). They had a couple tables in the front dining room, but seated us in the empty back dining room. It turned out well, though. Another party was seated and it felt less deserted. It's a tasting menu, with options... More

This was our neighborhood goto spot for a year or so. My wife and I really enjoyed the chefs tasting menus and being surprised with the creative dishes. The staff always helped recommend a nice (and affordable) bottle of wine with our meals. Really miss this pl.ace

We went as a family and 3 of the four of us came away having thoroughly enjoyed the food. It was cooked to order and tasted delicious and quite adventurous! As I hinted one of us was distictly underwhelmed with her choice of Humous, and duck breast (heavy on the humous, light on the duck breast) should have had the... More

In Barceloneta, this place is very small and intimate. Great dishes, that change quite often depending on the season and availability of the ingredients. The menu is particular, a little bit fusion-style, but tastes are wonderful. Size is in the average and quality is excellent. Price is reasonable for what they offer. We where two and had an appetizer (oyster... More

Somorrostro is a small restaurant tucked away in the old side streets of Barceloneta just off the main drag which is heavy with tourists and touts trying to lure you into overpriced and sub-standard establishments. It's about a five minute walk from Barceloneta metro station. This was our last night in Barcelona and H was suffering from food fatigue and... More

We ate here this week on a trip to Barcelona. We found the place earlier in the day and decide to come back because of the 'slow food' credentials and the nice décor. We ordered a cod starter which came on a bed of risotto with mushrooms, which was nice but slightly overcooked. A very decent portion size though. It... More

A well hidden restaurant, away from the touristy road, which hides inside a true culinary experience. From the way it's decorated, to the open kitchen view and the food.. everything was so special. You have only menu options, either two course (25 eur) or three course (30eur). I highly recommend trying the grilled octopus, it was sensational! Also great for... More
