A nice place for a romantic dinner

We ate "closcada" and "parrillada de pescado". Everything was excellent, waiters were friendly and nice. Moreover we enjoyed a very nice view on barcelona and the olympic harbour and seashore.

I came to this restaurant beginning of this year which was good for the first time. I returned with family Friday evening but a sad diner. We didn't have ours plates in the same time. My plate arrived and the waiter came to us in the time to inform my wife that the fish she ordered is no more available.... More

Delicious seafood with great views of the water. Razor clams and Paella were so good! Recommendation from the Hotel Arts that was really delicious and decently priced (compared to NY)

The mix paella was spot on and the piece of veal was epic! Sangria has to be awaited but there is nothing like it. Lovely view on Barcelona beaches is a bonus

Freshest calamari I've ever had, and the grilled hake was sublime. The outfit appears to have two tiers of the marina, we sat outside on he higher level, which I recommend to enjoy the views of the med and the occasional breeze to keep you cool.

This seafood restaurant was pretty good. The food was nice but the service was a bit patchy. It's in a great location down at the Olympic port. I would definitely recommend it. See if you can get a table upstairs in the air-conditioned room - there are lovely views of the beach from there.

There were 6 of us and we shared a large seabags. It was grilled whole and excellent. A little pricey but very fresh and cooked perfectly (not dried out) and came with enough sides to fill everyone up. We got there when they first opened at lunchtime and they were a little disorganized at first but rallied quickly. Be careful... More

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
