Nice restaurant with a good variety of food on the menu but a bit on the pricey side. Quality of food was average.

On our recent visit to Barcelona we wanted to take a break from tapas and find a good seafood restaurant. We strolled past the restaurant, checked reviews and decided to give it a try. We booked a table for the next night and we were glad we did. We had hoped to sit outside but the rain made that a... More

Placed in a great location where you can meander to and stroll after. Seating indoors and outdoors with lovely views across the harbour. Extensive and very different seafood menu with some unusual choices, as well as an extensive wine list. Attentive but relaxed waiting service. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner.

Well, this is placed nicely in harbor and need to say that getting here by taxi is no problem - right in front of restaurant. They have huge nice terrace for dining. Booking by mail wasn´t any problem - replay came right away with confirmation. This is important for some people. I spoke with butler - looked and chosen upon... More

Was a buzzing place as we walked by this afternoon so went back this evening. The food was very good, just looking at the chefs cooking that was no surprise. An excellent evening a bit let down by a very surely lot of waiters. Was so different than anywhere else in Barcelona where the staff were super friendly. Here the... More

We had been told by a local guide that this was the best restaurant along the harbor. As we walked by a number of restaurants to get to the one on the end, Merendero, we thought we were in a tourist area. While it is a tourist area our friend was right when she said the paella was outstanding. My... More

Real nice place to eat with good quality food, particularly fish. Great selection on tapas for starters followed by a wide selection of dish's for the main course. Nice atmosphere sitting outside looking over the marina. Would go back again.

A lovely seaside seafood restaurant overlooking the marina. Food not incredible but very nice & I'd suggest a good option vs the 'strip'. Nice to sit with a lovely glass of wine & while away an afternoon in the shady sunshine.

Despite looking like a very expensive restaurant set on the harbour this restaurant is great value for money. Excellent food, service and wine and so worth a visit. Don't miss out - try it.

Seafood restaurant right next to the harbour for sailing boats. Nice location. The restaurant has a large terrace and it great to sit there. Relaxed atmosphere. The food is good. Loved paella. Service is quick. The only annoying thing about the location are all the guys trying to sell you stuff like roses etc.
