From the fish stand to the plate, almost right in front of your eyes! Large choice of shellfish to fry, steam, grill, as you like it. Plus excellent tuna! Excellent sauces: aioli, parsley, marinera for the mussels! (Let's find something original now): did you notice there are always many Italians around?

If you're looking to eat out in Barcelona and love fish and seafood then the restaurants run by this small business are the place to go. The only caveat being that it's not an elegant dining experience for those seeking an ultra smooth meal that might woo a loved one or business acquaintance. It is important to understand the way...

Very good concept, good food, nice staff, cheap and very very worth it. Easy to find, clean etc ... One tip only, be there early as it can gather quite a long queue!

A very simple place behind Sagrada Familia where to eat fresh fish in great quantity with the sensation to be in a market of fresh fish where they will cook all that you can eat for a great value money! DON'T ORDER TOO MUCH!

I've visited this place after recommnedations of my friends. I like seefood very much and was not dissappointed here. Great choice of the freshest seafood. The queue moves quick and time for preparation of the food is even shorter. While you take a seat and open the bottle of wine, first dishes will already come. Prices are really good. The... More

This place is excellent value for money - basic furnishings but excellent food and service Don't be put off by the queue! You go to the fresh fish counter right inside the door where you will pick out which sea food you want and they then take them to the kitchen to be cooked and call your number when ready.... More

We heard about this restaurant a lot, so we went there once - and were not disappointed. The concept is amazing, you can actually see all the fresh seafood you' re about to eat. They explained us in details what they can do with each creature, so we weren' t lost there. We tried mussels, prawns, calamars, cuttlefish, monkfish etc.... More

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.
