Nice food and atmosphere

Staff were very pleasant so we told them we would visit the next day, which we did. The seafood selection for 55 euros was pleasantly huge in its quantities, with langoustines, clams, mussels, prawns etc. We also had a chicken paella for one for 15 euros, a pizza and macaroni with bolognese sauce... read more

We had an excellent dinner here in early November. The fixed price menu is superb value. The cannelloni was the best I have ever tasted. We accompanied the meal with an excellent local Catalonian red wine recommended by Eric, our very helpful and happy waiter. The choice of restaurants in this area is immense but we were pleased with our... More

We were walking down Rambla del Poblenou look for a place to eat with our 3 kids 14, 12 and 11. The 12 year old is a vegetarian who does not like vegtables and in Spain this can be a challenge! We were stopped outside and after a brief chat we went in. We did not regret it. We were... More

to cut a long story short, choose the couple seafood platter for 55€ - it comes with a fine bottle of wine and is spectacular and can feed 3-4 people easy, we enjoyed it a lot

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
