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

Simply the best food we at during our stay in Barcelona. I left everyone at the apartment we were renting to find the restaurant after it was recommended by some locals. It was already quite busy (at 20:15pm) when I arrived. By the time I returned to the apartment and we came back (20:40pm) a queue about 20 long had... More

If you like seafood you should try it. At the entrance you can see wide range of seafood on ice. You point your finger on what you want and tell how much you want. Then it goes to the kitchen to be cooked (fried or grilled) and you have got your order number. When you hear your number (in spanish... More

After reading TA reviews we were worried there would be a long line at the Sagrada Famillia location. We arrived 20mins before opening and were the first in line. We watched the staff bring out all the fresh seafood and just drooled while deciding what to get. Once the doors open we walked and and ordered. Quick and efficient. Razor... More

I really liked La Paradeta. It's as much an "experience" as a restaurant. You pick your seafood, they cook it and then you pick it up from the counter and eat it. In my case I chose lobster. It was certainly tasty (often I find lobster not very tasty and somewhat overrated). I would even go as far as to... More

We arrived 15 minutes before opening, and so did several others. Walk in and pick your meal from an array of fresh seafood which is waiting to be cooked to order. Grab a table and they call your number and ready to eat. Excellent quality, and good overall value.

we were waiting outside for it to open at 1.00pm and the others couldn't believe there would be a queue but as soon as the doors opened, people appeared as if from nowhere!! Luckily we were second in line - such a simple operation - we ordered from the fresh marine life displayed beautifully on the ice in front of... More

Really a nice restaurant. All fishes & shellfishes are fresh. Love the tuna steak most. You should remember to tell the waitress to cut "small" piece of the steak. Otherwise you won't have any room for other things. The crab is amazibg as well, mixing the spawn with sause and salad. Price is ok, 56 euros for 2 people. Highly... More
