We went here at lunchtime and had five sharing starters (loads), paella and pastas for mains, desserts, bread, wine and water all for 60 euros (for 4 adults!!). Food was tasty but a bit too much and not surprisingly the place was mobbed.

My wife and I went here with another couple. We ordered Sangria which was really good! My appetizer was very tasty as well. My main course was pretty much flavorless. My wife didn't enjoy her meal either. The waiter seemed annoyed with us. We ordered coffee and crème brûlée. The crème brûlée was quite different. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant... More

We went here in search of some great fresh fish and that's definitely what we found! We were a party of four and two went for the set menu whilst the other two chose from the main menu. The set menu consisted of 4 tapas dishes (we had cured meat platter, calamari, baby squid and prawns in garlic) followed by... More

We love Port Olimpic so we were trying to find a place to eat on the sea front. We chose this place because of many decent reviews on Trip Advisor. I do not understand where those reviews come from. The service was terrible from beginning to end, The waiters were kicking chairs around and looked like it was the last... More

After reading reviewers feedback, decided to go with the set menu of 22 EUR per person for my wife & me. This come with a choice of 4 dishes from the starters plus one main dish (I had half a lobster) plus a dessert. I wouldn't say the food is exceptional but decent. The staff was courteous. The whole stretch... More

Not sure where all the positive reviews are coming from, but avoid this place. The food is lousy and over priced. We live in the Villa Olimpica area of Barcelona and there are far better options in the area than this overpriced tourist trap. The service is slow, but the food is really subpar - over cooked seafood, below average... More

We went to this restaurant on our last night in Barcelona because it was recommended for the Paella and seafood - very good choice! Fresh seafood, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and great location (right in port next to many other restaurants,bars, and clubs). Not the cheapest restaurant - but we still got an excellent meal, drinks, and desert for a... More

Nice food, service was a little disjointed, we had about 5 different waiters at times, can be quite noisy but nice views over marina, would probably give this a miss next time, disappointed.
