Great place for fresh seafood. Get there early, the line forma quickly. You select the fish you want as you walk in the reataurant. You get 2 options, grilled or fried. Everything was super fresh and delishious.

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

We visited the Sagrada Familia branch after our morning visit shortly after 13:00 and we were surprised that there was already a long line with different nationalities lined up in front of the restaurant. That's usually a good sign! After about 20min waiting in the line, we were approaching to the fish monger who made us some recommendations for a... More

Wish they had one of these back home! There's raw seafood at the front, which you pick by pointing, then you pay and get assigned a number. Sit at any open table and keep your ears open for your number, then be prepared for an amazing meal! No sauces required, it's that tasty. There are sides available of salad, bread... More
