Mediocre food, poor value. Never again !!

This restaurant is very well located by the sea in a very comfortable setting. However parking might be an issue. Food is not even acceptable by catalan standards. Service is very good but will not compensate the rest. And the icing on the cake, prices way above local average. So all in all, very... read more

My husband and I are in Barcelona for a long weekend, and were looking for a nice traditional beach side bar for a lunchtime tapas. We found this little place, which prided itself on it's seafood. We were provided with olives and bread whilst we looked at the menu, which were free when it came to payment time. We has... More

The food is excellent, their reputation is well earned. Service is not so good. Had to wait for waiters, dirty toilet, greasy, slippery terrace floor, horrible music from some portable music device. At these prices one expects food and service to be good. Monkfish vermicelli paella good, seafood and fish starters good.

We celebrated a birthday lunch with friends because of the great prior experience in the other Cal Pinxo at the Plaça Pau Vila. Although both restaurants are managed by the same company quality differs extremely. 1. Location is great, just a few meters by the sea and a good and comfortable set up. 2. Service was very slow, inattentive and... More

Love their paella, fast and tasty. Also their fried squid is great. Watch out for pricing - per person for a paella; but I hear it's common here. Service ok, nothing to rave about.

The rest was good. Paella was nice...and a little priced up but reasonable value for thr quality. Service was okay.great ambience on the waterfront. And a service charge £3.98. Overall okay. I recommend coming but ask for the price of extras and drinks! It was fresh juice - but way overpriced - same thing in madrid the other day was... More

Very nice outdoor dining by the beach. Food was good in general but I'd advise against ordering the scampi as it wasn't that fresh. Waiters were excellent. They made an error in one of our orders but took care of that immediately once we brought it to their attention. Just be careful of snack items get placed on your table... More

We ate dinner at Cal Pinxo. For entrees, we had half serves of two mains, which was a nice idea-both the seafood croquettes and prawns were very good. Our seafood paella main was excellent-well flavoured and cooked rice, with generous included seafood. Deserts were a highlight-- a very rich chocolate mouse, and the star of the night spicy tubes with... More

Nice location on the boardwalk of the beach, with good fresh seafood, and a very good Paella. Great for a seafood lunch with a bottle of wine. The Set Menu is also very good value! Highly recommend for the food, but service is just average. This one is quite casual. They have another restaurant near the Museum which looks a... More
