Good location near Port

This restaurant is near the port, so should specialise in seafood. the Menu del Dia at 14.95 is great value, especially if you can sit outside and watch everything. there was a good paella dish, sea bream, choice of starters and desserts, so there should be a variety to suit everyone. with a bottle... read more

This restaurant is the typical tourist trap. Oversalted food, lame service and most importantly disappointing food with low quality ingredients. But with a great location. I got a few pre-microwaved squid rings with a lemon slice for starters. Let's say the lemon was the best part of that meal. We both chose paella for main course, and it was alright... More

We went to this place which is opposite the seaside, and it being a Monday and in Jan, it was pretty empty. Infact we were the only group there and then while we left we saw 2 more tables occupied. The sea is across the road, but if you want to enjoy dinner by the seaside then there are some... More

Our tour guide recommended this place when we were driving by. We hadn't been by the Barceloneta area yet so we decided to try the recommendation. It's a few blocks away from the metro stop. Is it touristy? Oh yeah, a table of Italians to my right, a table of French behind me. Walking down that strip everything is touristy.... More

Spent the morning walking along the marina, so as i came to turn towards the coast, stopped here for lunch. I would a little better priced than places I had seen in the city centre, nice view on to the Marina (albeit it was construed due to the christmas stalls) I was greeted by fluent english speaking host and hostess....

L´arros was recommended to us by a local guy. It wasn´t mistake. We orded 3 courses menu for 15 euros each and sangria de cave for 16 euros. We started with mussels and cheese, as main menu we had paella and for the dessert cataluyen cream - not so good. Staff was nice, restaurant clean.

if you are in La Barceloneta, this is one of the best places u can eat paella. quite a wide range of choice, also for those who cannot eat fish. being in J.Borbò, surrounded by touristic restaurants, here u can find a good quality even if not at a very cheap price. but it's a non touristic restaurant among a...

My group felt that the tapas here we're step up from the average tapas bar and the service and location are top notch - great place to go for a snack and a glass of wine though you pay for the location, if visiting the Catalan history museum in the port area - close to the Barcolanetta metro stop -...

Hotel reception recommended this place and I told them not to do it again. Food was too salty and didn't taste good. It's overpriced for what it is. Very disappointing.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
