There might be a line to wait for thirty minutes, but it's all worth it. After getting the seafood platter of mixed seafood delicacies in front of you, you are in heaven. It's very relaxed and busy small place, but food is definately fresh and you can feel the market ambiance around you.

We had dinner at El cochinillo loco at La Boqueria in Barcelona twice. The first time was fantastic, the second time atrocious. There was a bit of a wait the first time but it was well worth it. A massive plate of prawns, clams, razor clams, fish, calamari, octopus for 74 euros for the four of us had us licking... More

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
