Nice place to be. Expensive

It can be a little awkward as a woman travelling alone on business, but Barcelona takes this new a level. A woman solo can expect worse seating and worse service. Even so, this experience was exceptionally bad. The restaurant looks lovely, but if you are alone dont expect to dine al fresco. I was not allowed to sit outside. I... More

Went for dinner this evening and quite frankly one of the most disappointing meals we've had. The location is superb but the place itself lacks any warmth or atmosphere. The staff were aloof and brisk. The food was lacklustre and bland. My starter of sizzling shrimp was luke warm and lacking in any of the promised flavour but worse still... More

It feels holidays to eat in such a nice harbour atmosphere. The place is very well located, tapas are Ok but main course of fish is very expensive and not great quality. Wine also is mainly local but priced like french...you can eat a lot better in Barcelona

We walked past this restaurant during the day. Liked the location, it's look and style and menu. So we decided to make a reservation for that evening. We returned to our hotel and looked on Tripadvisor at the reviews. There were mixed reviews, as will have now read. This restaurant ticked all our boxes. Great terrace with views over yacht... More

The location and food is great if you want to eat outside and enjoy the habour location. The pallela was also very good, but the place was extremely under staffed - the result: really bad and slow service.

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

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.
