Expensive, but good.

I went to this restaurant as part of a group and I prepaid for the meal (31 Euro). The meal came with several courses of appetizers or tapas that were very good. The actual meal was a shrimp and mussels dish with rice, I don't remember the exact name. It was good, especially with the aioli sauce we... read more

We had dinner at this place on a Tuesday night at 7PM. It wasn't crowded at all and we sat outside with a great view of the ocean. The food was really good. We ordered the daily fish, which was fantastic, along with grilled prawns, seafood paella and a couple of other appetizers. The meal was moderately priced and a... More

We had, of course, heard of this 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona, but didn't know that the Olympic sailing venue had been turned into a seafood lovers culinary heaven . We hadn't time to sample all of the offerings from the many restaurants in the area, so we chose what we believe is one of the best. My wife and... More

This restaurant on a pier in Barcelona provided lunch for our very large tour group, and it was one of the best meals we had during our weekend in Barcelona. The set menu started with tostas (like bruchetta), plates of very tender Iberian ham, steamed mussels, followed by cod with vegetables, flan for dessert and then espresso. The service was... More

Our hotel reception suggested this as the best seafood restaurant in Barcelona. So we decided to try it. It was in the port not so near from the Ramblas so we took a taxi. There was only few tables left, so I would suggest making a reservation. The food was truly excellent. Lobster ravioli was sooooo delicious for starters. Also... More

The dishes are overall mediocre. The artichoke chips was coated with too much batter. And although I could be wrong, the baby squid did not seem to be freshly caught on the day. The seafood paella was ok, I think the rice was nicely cooked but the portion was not reasonable for two people. There were too much rice given... 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.
