It took them a few minutes to take care of us, but once they got to it, they were outstanding. Probably the best meal i've had since I'm back in Spain (over a year now). The dishes were original, respectful with the ingredients, surprising in texture or cooking point at times, never boring. Their... read more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

When we were at Estrella, we immediately were reminded of French food (not surprisingly, as the chef is French which we found out later). So we wouldn't say it's Spanish food, but it's good anyway. The restaurant also seems to be part of a restaurant chain of 3 or so restaurants. We liked the raindeer carpaccio and especially the filet... More

Lovely food. Good menu and whilst pricey it was worth it. Steak very good and good setting too. As there are so many restaurants around I probably would not go back but only as I don't go to the city that often.

Traditional catalan kitchen in a small side street just off Born. Best navajas I have ever eaten and all fish dishes were excellent. Do listen to the waiter for specials of the day. Good value for money but the interior is quite hideous.

Very, very good food and very friendly, helpful service in an environment that is nicely designed and attractive while remaining low-key. Highly recommend it.

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.
