Perfect for seafood lovers

We came across this restaurant by chance when walking along Barconeleta beach, it was late afternoon but very busy. We sat outside under a heated gazebo so you could still see everything going on outside. It is perfect for fish lovers but if anyone in the party does not like fish the only option is... read more

This was our hotel concierge's 2nd choice for seaside dining, but we probably should have gone with his 1st. We chose it for the ocean vs. harbor view, but you don't get any view at all eating indoors. They have heated tents outside for that. The food was good to very good, but service was poor. They sneak in a... More

The food was excellent, although a little pricey. Spotty service, but hey, there was no rush. The setting, however, is spectacular. Dine outside, and be prepared to relax!

Expensive but nice restaurant to have lunch by the see. Nothing to do with the more packed restaurants nearby. We went on business and had fish / paella, and all very good. Good options for starters and desserts as well. Tables inside are ok, a little packed but if the weather is fine go for the terrace with views of... More

I used to go eat there a few years ago when I had no family. I decided to take my husband and daughter there and I was very poorly treated by 2 ladies and and a man that were supposed to treat us well. On the contrary, they lied to us about availability of space once they saw that we... More

If you like seafood, this is the place to go. We weren't all that adventurous, but they had things such as spiny sea snails, sea cucumbers and anemones on the menu as well as the usual selection of fish, soups, stews, paellas, etc. Not cheap, but not expensive either. We paid €80 (£60 at the time) for a 3 course... More

Went to Can Majo specifically for the paella and left happy campers. Definitely the best paella we had in Spain. Other dishes were equally as good as the paella. Top notch service - staff definitely appreciated any attempt in speaking Catalan/Spanish. Only complaint? Paella and seafood boullabaise was a tad too salty; wasn't enough to spoil our meal though. Isn't... More

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.
