This Restaurant opens at 8.00pm and expect to queue no matter the time this is a measure of just how good the food is which has to be collected when your number is called, ordering is on the way in where you choose the fish you want to eat before they go to the kitchen, service is very fast and...

This is the perfect restaurant to enjoy good seafood at a reasonable price. You can easily recognize it because of the queue outside (would recommend to go there before 9 PM). It's informal and rather noisy so I would not recommend it for a special occasion, but it's perfect to spend some time with your family or friends. The oysters... More

1.5 blocks from Sagrada Familia, so plan a lunch here before or after your SF visit. Cash only. Good thing we scrounged up enough between my wife and I after the wait in line. Large fresh seafood display on ice as you enter. Order by weight what you want to eat and then they cook it to order. You get... More

You will need to line up 10 min come early it's worth it plenty of fresh see food that you chose yourself and they cook it for you on the spot skip the sauces and enjoy the great taste of freshness! Highly recommended for sea food lovers.

We qued up for about 15 minutes before going inside. You have to choose the fresh fish from the guy who weighs it all we had Calamari and mussels and large prawns and small battered octopus and drink for 3 people which cost about €29 each person. It was ok but watch out for pick pockets and bag snatchers in... More

We were very excited about heading here after seeing the lines each night, we thought this place must be amazing. Sadly we were disappointed. The line was long and the wait even longer. They had a good selection of shell fish and it was clearly fresh but that was really it. It is like a school canteen having to collect... More

Let me say straight away that if you judge a restaurant on the food alone, then I can understand how this place can get a four star review. The quality of the seafood was very good, although the accompanying salad (not fresh) and the fish soup (luke warm and not particularly tasty) would mean a maximum of four stars. However,... More

You get in you choose the fish and they cook it and you eat it. Amazing, fresh fish, no waiters(that reduces the bill) and if you don't choose a lot of fried fish it s good. If everything is fried stomak will not feel good. A good place to it fish with a good price. Go early or you will... More

We found this place last year and loved it. I think we loved it even more this year, because we knew what to expect. They do not speak a lot of English, so you do have to attempt to use some spanish. They are very nice and helpful--just be patient. All the seafood was excellent! Will be back again. Love... More
