I went there with my family, we were quite hungry and L'arros seems like a good choice based on the reviews (plus it was opened quite early). Ordered 2 dishes, steamed mussels and seafood paella. The food take extremely long to arrive at our table. We tried the mussels, it was cooked well but the ingredient is not fresh. Mussels... More

Doing a tour of Barcelona and happened to drop into this little restaurant down in the harbour area. We walked past about ten very expensive restaurants before noticing L'Arros across the street from the harbour. We sat outside under an umbrella with views of the water. We ordered the Menu Dia which included a choice of starter, main and dessert... 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

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 of wine at 18.00 and water...

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....

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.
