It was the one of the best seafood we've had in Barcelona. We ordered a 3p seafood platter with fish for 4 persons. And it was more than enough. The seafood was incredibly tasty and juicy. It's absolutely worth to wait for this restaurant.

Amazing brazed, grilled seafood....would say the best, freshest, tastiest seafood I ever had. Waiting in line to get a table was well worth it. Had a mixed dish of everything for 59 Euros is worth every penny! Yummy, should make another trip for just that :-)

This is a restaurant you must try if you are in Barcelona. Went there several times and the food was always great. You have to wait in line if you go between 13:00 and 15:00 but it is worth it. One problem: no drinks menu. They have the drinks but no menu for it which is a shame...

The portions are massive, the platters for 2 are a good 45-60 minute feast, we had small squids fried (perfect) , razor clams (slightly over done),paella (excellent), Iberian sausages, potatas bravas and grilled vegetables, great place, busy and atmosphere of market really infects the place, and reasonably priced

Seafood platter to die for. Sardines amazing. Great house wine and Cava. Attentive service despite the crowds. Loved loved loved it! Next time will ask them to separate the shellfish from the fish on the platter as one of our party allergic to prawns. 3 generation family all left beaming and sooooo full! We are here for a week and... More

This restaurant is located in La Boqueria Market. We had just returned from an excursion and had not eaten lunch so we decided to do an early dinner. Good thing since they stop seating people about 6PM. We ordered the large seafood plate for 2 and it was more than enough. This was some of the best seafood I have... More

We had to wait for a table because it was so popular. We ordered the big plate with seafood for 2 person and glasses of white wine. Many different clams,fish, lobster and so on. A bit to much oil, but tasted very good. The plate is big enough. Overall a nice dinner, and great service.

We have been several times at the Boqueria market next to Las Ramblas, and one of the reasons for going there has been to have lunch at El Cochinillo Loco. Apart from the fact that you may have to wait for a table, once you get it, you´re half way to heaven. I see that some people are not too... More
