Don't think - just come in! My best restaurant in BCN! We were there 3 times in 8 days! And I'd go even more! Prices are surprisingly low for such food in BCN! 40-45? for 2 persons for really full stomach of delicious various seafood including oysters, bottle of wine and salads! You choose fresh seafood first (octopuses are the... More

As good as the reviews. Better in fact. Great fun ordering your fish and then waiting for your number to be called! Fresh fish at fishmonger prices. We over ordered (easily done) - dressed crab, calamari x2, tuna steak, coquinas, mussels in tomato sauce, baby squid, gambas, bread, 2 sauces, bottle of decent wine and soft drinks - £60. Fed...

This small chain of restaurants are a seafood lovers paradise. No fancy frills, just fresh seafood at reasonable prices. Sort of a fish market that cooks for you. Order what and as much as you want, get your beverage and they will call (both English and Spanish) your number when the food is ready. We had 6-7 dishes and all... More

Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant if you are in the area. It is 5 minutes waking from Sagrada Familia and would be a perfect lunch place after visiting. When you enter the restaurant, you have an opportunity to select from the fresh seafood they have available that day, and how much you want. For some of... More

We went to the El Born location to avoid the SF crowd. My husband and I were nervous about eating here because of our limited Spanish and we didn't want to order more than we can eat but we did more than fine, we actually had a fun dining experience. The guy in charge of seafood spoke good English so... More

In this restaurant all is fresh and cooked on the spot as you wish and amount you wish good luck eating crab and lobster as you would have to do the whole cleansing apart from that you pay cheap but will have to clear off your own mess after eating so it kind of ruins it recommended for all seafood...

Three keys things here, the only things you'll need to know. 1. This place is an experience, you're not going to a restaurant, you're not going to a cafe, your not going to a market. Its almost a combination of the three, but with a mix of fun in interactivity. I can't stress enough that you will have fun, the... More

Super fresh, huge selection, and wonderfully cooked. We went here twice in our 8 day stay. Only negative thing is that it can get pricy quick especially with shrimp, lobster, or lagustinas. For a cheaper meal, get the calamari, mussels, razor clams, and a couple of salads. We really liked the mussels in tomato sauce.
