It was good

The ordering process was a bit tricky but once tackled and picking up our food you should be sweet because it was good! Great variety of seafood, we were stuffed!

If you like seafood, this is the place to go to! You choose your seafood at the counter and pick it up grilled/fried. We had Calamari, a giant tuna steak, gambas, sepia, oysters, baby-octopus and an excellent bottle of wine for 57€ total and couldn't finish it. Although you have to wait in line for a bit, it's definitely worth... More

A local crowd nestled in an ally near probably one of the most tourist-packed areas of Barcelona. You may have to wait in line for 15-20 minutes but it is well worth wait. Once at the front of the line, you'll have dozens of seafood options all in front of you. I chose a crab, 2 batches of razor clams,... More

This was a short walk from La Sagrada Familia Basilica. The simple, fresh fish and cool wine was exactly what we needed after a morning Gaudi walking tour, and an in-depth visit to the Basilica. We were exhausted and appreciated and speed of ordering in addition to the family style service. As a multi generational group, we relaxed and went... More

We had steamed mussels, prawns and grilled calamari. With 2 large beers and a sharable sized salad our bill was 50 euros. You pick the raw seafood (like the market) and the staff ask how you want each cooked (calamari- fried or grilled, mussels - steamed or in tomato sauce, etc). The tables are very cafeteria-esque, you pick up your... More

Though the place is reminiscent of a cafeteria the food is excellent and great value for money. Who cares about the plastic chairs anyway? I just want good food. There were slot of local people eating there which is a testament to how good the food is. The selection is all in Spanish but there is someone behind the fish... More

If you love seafood, this is your place. You can choose what and how the chef will cook for you. Everything is really fresh. The settings are basic but they say that locals love it. I am a foreigner but I love this anyway...

Forget the fact that it looks like a school canteen the food is absolutely fantastic, choose your seafood pay and go get a table it's that simple. Seafood at it's simplest and best, do not miss

My wife & I were spending a few days in Barcelonia, we stumbled across a very classy looking seafood restaurant on our way back to the hotel, we ventured inside to have a look and get a feel for the place , we were impressed by the display, the decor and the autographed pictures of celebrities on the walls.
