Fresh and Delicious

This restaurant gets very busy during the day. If you don't like standing up and wait for your table, it is better to choose other less busy restaurant. However, the food here is so great and so fresh. Mouth watering seafood is ready to made in front of you. I tried mixed grilled fish and... read more

Had tapas in several of the eateries here and feel Bar Clemens' deserve the constantly high reviews. Owner was friendly and obliging, even though command of english as average. Saw 2 customers leave without ordering anything, he patiently thanked them and reset the tables. Had 4 fresh oysters, grilled mixed vegetables with mushrooms and some bread. Topped it off with...

Alberto is the perfect host…attentive, welcoming and engaging. Located in the wondrous Mercat de Sant Josep ( La Boqueria). Despite being a most reasonably priced twenty (or so) stool venue, guests are attended to and entertained by this delightful--more master of ceremonies - than mere host. Wide selection of swimmingly fresh seafood prepared with limited complications or supplements; permitting each... More

La Boqueria market in Barcelona is a very crowded place but don't let the crowd stop you from waiting for your turn to sit at Bar Clemens. The food - always fresh - is of superior quality and the service is the best. We went twice during our one-week stay this past September and we will go back next time... More

Wow, this place was good! After wandering through the market- unable to speak Spanish or Catalan- I wandered upon this place. It was fairly empty, so I looked up the tripadvisor review before I tried it. Since everyone seemed to like it, I have it a try. So glad I did! The hake was phenomenal, and drizzled with basil oil.... More

True authentic tapas! This place did not disappoint. Went early before the lunch rush and the last spots were just available. We sat down at the bar and the menu is basically all the fresh seafood right in front of you and around you that other customers are eating. Picture a sashimi bar, but it'll be cooked right in front... More

One of the local tapas bar located in the market. Very friendly service and at affordable prices. My typical yardstick, if the majority of the customers are local then you can go wrong. Do try to locate it. It's at the back side of the market. Had the entrecot, octopus and grilled vege. Pity they didn't have lamb during at... More

Amazing prawns at this place. If you expect a quiet atmosphere you are not even close to your expectations. This is a super busy cosy crowdy place. The food is amazing though. We just had few starters but will be back someday to try mains.

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
