Nice place

Nice place to try seafood, but it's a bad idea to make customers queuing outside the restaurant, especially the weather is bad, windy and cold.

I have eaten here three or four times now and always enjoyed it. On entering there is a large counter with all the fresh seafood displayed from Lobster - Tuna - King Prawns - razor clams and of course Octopus. You make your selection (Mix and Match) When you get to the end of the counter your selection is weighed... More

We had previously eaten at the location near the Sants Station, and should have known better than to opt for Sunday lunch near Sagrada Familia. Opening at 1:00 PM, we arrived 45 minutes later to a restaurant totally filled and a line of mostly tourists waiting. We could see empty tables inside, and soon discovered why. It seems as if...

We found this using the trip advisor app on my phone after a visit to Sagrada Familia. It was just a few hundred yards away, tucked in a side street and we were so glad we found it. Great food and an interesting experience. When we arrived there was no line so we walked right in. We wewre looking at... More

You will not find there an elegant interior but will find amazing food. It is a place just to eat with fast service.

We visited this place with my girlfriend after our trip to the Sagrada Familia. The queue seemed horrible, and we had to wait 40 minutes just to get in, but it was definitely worth the waiting. You can pick from a lot of different seafoods for a reasonable price, and you can eat these grilled of fried. The service was... More

You chose the seafood you want and they cook it in a couple of minutes time...you can see that the food is fresh and even see the kitchen that they are cooking ..everything is very delicious...there is just one thing, you don't get served, it is like a self service restaurant...you go get your food when the number you are...

The place is very, very ugly and it is completely out of place among the many design restaurants in the area, but so are its prices. You come in (often after a long queue) and find yourself as if you were at a fishmonger, choosing at a stand the which and what weight the fresh fish and seafood you want... More

Me and my wife were here in summer 2014. Restaurant is not usual restaurant, it has no waiters no tips and you should understand Spanish a little. Restaurant opens on lunch( about 1 p.m.) and supper(6 pm). When you enter it you see a big choice of fresh seafood. Prawns, different types of fish and e.t.c. Then you order it... More
