Might take a while to have a table become available, but will worth the wait if your love SEAFOOD. The grilled seafood platter for 2 or 3 people is enough to feed three to five people. Right in the heart of the market, which is well worth the trip to visit!

We stumbles upon this restaurant whilst looking around Il Metcado on the Ramblas. There were people waiting and when we saw the dishes being served we joined the queue. Fantastic seafood platter including lobster. Cooked to perfection, served piping hot, it took time but we managed to clear the platter. All of this for only €55 . Would recommend you... More

I can't believe in some of the comments in here... I can only imagine they must be written by people that never really tried great seafood. I went there for lunch and had the worst paella of my life, composed of mostly rice and smell of seafood. We actually order 1 paella for 2, which was the best mistake ever,... More

FANTASTIC!!! Best seafood I have ever eaten! Those huge platters, delicious! My wife and I were just walking around the Mercat de la Boqueria next to La Rambla, it is a completely different world inside the market, the atmosphere and sound of that busy place! Just walked by and saw these plates loaded with sea food... Just had to try... More

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
