The restaurant is located in a small courtyard, about 4 blocks east of the Poble Neu Metro stop (line 4). The area is very safe. We arrived early, so we waited for the staff to set up the outdoor seating area for lunch. We ordered an appetizer and the grilled fish. The waiter recommended a regional wine which worked well...

I've eaten here many times as we often visit Poble Nou district of Barcelona. This restaurant is quite famous and a bit of an institution, customers coming in by taxi from flashier parts of town. Poble Nou is not flashy so the setting in an old square lined with trees seems almost rural or at least unspoilt. It is best... More

I had lunch at Els Pescadors while visiting Barcelona and overall it was a good experience. The service was good overall but a little bit slow. They did have menus in English which was nice and decent cocktail list; although wine here was more expensive than most other restaurants I went to in Barcelona. The main course (sea bass stew)...

Slightly out of the way from central Barcelona, this place was our "posh meal out" of the holiday. The location is great, a quiet square - outdoor tables with a wine bucket next to the table is a nice touch. To start, my girlfriend had some very good clams in white wine sauce; I had a dish of steamed cod... More

I have been visiting this restaurant since 2001 almost annually, and it continues to be my favourite. Enough said!

I totally agree with Marc Ferrer's opinion. The restaurant is not worth yhe visit. I definitively do not recommend it! It is expensive in relation to the quality of the meal and the service, Wine list is poor and very expensive (x4 cellar's price). Waiting time is long, possibily bexause not enough personnel in the kitchen. Serving personnel is poor... More

I visited on a weekday night with a group of work colleagues and clients, and as someone else was paying I didn't need really take much heed of the prices. But believe me, they are high. The catch of the day, as so often in restaurants around the Mediterranean basin, seems to live in some parallel universe of pricing that... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend of ours and despite calling them at 8 pm on Saturday, they were still kind enough to offer me a table for two for 9.45 the same evening. The food was amazing, truly Catalunian, very tasty accompanied by a great wine, the choice of the manager. Extremely friendly staff made us feel like... More

Good food but if you're not willing to pay over 50€ (per person) for a fish portion I wouldn't recommend. Really overpriced.
