My partner and I went to this restaurant after reading the TA reviews beforehand, it did not disappoint. We struggled a bit with the communication as the (friendly) owners /staff did not speak any English at all, but we got there in the end with ad hoc hand gestures and 1 other customer translating at one point from the next...

This little cozy place is a place where I will come back next time for sure. It is run by a nice and welcoming family. The seafood variety is great and delicious. This is the best paella I have tried in the city. The place is quite small but it has its charm and atmosphere of a home. You won't... More

Well, I think, most of reviews are written by Jose - owner of this restaurant! Hahaha))) Hmmm, good idea, Jose ;) So, what about this place? It`s hard to find, it`s small and it`s cosy. It`s not tourist attraction. Only 4 or 5 tables. Only seafood and simple drinks. Welcome, fresh and fast. Basic seafood dishes by Jose.

I joined my business colleague and friend here without knowing the place. My taxi driver said there's not a restaurant at this address or it can't be very good, because he knows the good ones in Barcelona. Well, fortunately he was wrong. We had some quite good fish and seafood. For starters we ordered fried calamaris and grilled shrimps, with... More

Glorious seafood and fish in a tiny, far from glam, spot in Poble Sec. Book as far in advance as you can manage for a weekend night. Expensive but exquisite.

We had this restaurant recommended to us by a French friend, who also mentioned it was small and very popular. Upon arriving in Barcelona we asked the hotel concierge to book us a table at 9pm, when it opened. The place itself is rustic and simple, but has a great atmosphere, they also don't speak English. This lead to an... More
