Very good food, great location

Very good location. Very good quality food. Service was average, (although better than the average for Barcelona). Quite pricey for quality, but overall enjoyable.

Excellent food and location both score 5, service and price are at maximum 3 that's why I scored 4. Noodles seafood paella is best in class and most of the main dishes served looked very delicious.

I expect to pay up for location (and this place is on the pier) but when I was recently there with 3 adults and 3 children and they charged us 14 Euro for just seven small pieces of bread that is just extortionate. Any business that practices this (and does not tell you that your cost of bread to sit... More

Excellent location with a beautiful terrace overlooking the port. We had paella for 2 and it was really flavoursome, service was kind and not overbearing. I was surprised there was not too many patrons but also I went there in low season, and that's why. The only downside was the bill... a bit too expensive for what we got (Calamari,... More

We sat in the January sun on the terrace and had a good lunch as the world walked by. We left wondering whether our table neighbour (Swiss?) would leave his wife and move to Barcelona to be with his glamorous mulatto girlfriend. They were still negotiating this issue when they left. As I was eating my ravioli and prawns I... More

Went to this restaurant with some friends for dinner. Its situate at the water front with a great view of the water front. The menu is excellent with the great dishes especially the noodle lobster and the monkfish. The service is very good and cheerful. They also have an excellent house rioja. Will definitely come back again.

The location is really perfect- in front of the sea in a nice building. The food was lousy- I didn't like anything at all and I eat everything..... Wouldn't recommend it unless I ate all the wrong things but that was the opinion from all others from our table.

The good thing is that everyone can order a different plate of paella/fideua which is not always possible in Spain. Quality was excellent and quantity of seafood was also above expectations. They have a beautiful terrace with views on the port. Prices can be on the high side sometimes. This was our second time there and it was as good... More

Recommended by a native as the place to eat. It is as i would say just like him fashionable! but do not let this detract from the restaurant we had a wonderful meal and really excellent service from the waiting staff. A chilly Barcelona evening still had views of the portside and with the flames rippling from the heaters to... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
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.
