We have visited Barcelona on many occasions over the years and eaten at a number of the restaurants overlooking the Marina at Port Vell but this was our first time here. We came with a large group of friends and it could not have been a more perfect way to spend a Friday lunchtime. We had a... read more

We had anchovies for starters and then a black rice and a black fiedua -- all three dishes were excellent. We opted for a table outside as it was a beautifully sunny day, so could enjoy the food while overlooking the "Port Vell" and the sea, and the multitude of weekend dwellers in the area. Staff was very professional and... More

For my birthday in Barcelona I wanted to have a nice lunch at the waterfront but due to some logistics issues (not knowing who all would be attending and arriving when etc) I was unable to book anywhere beforehand. Luckily we strolled past this place and could see that all of the outdoor space was fully occupied (sunny and warm... More

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
