“Good, but better not fried”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The grilled scampi were excellent!
But don't come here if you are looking for a relaxing environment!
Great for friends who want to have some fun and know how to handle a bit of stress :)

“Original dining experience...far from relaxed though!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Ditto all of the above and below! Yes, it's a different dining experience and you need to love fish/shellfish, as there's nothing else!
You can get caught up in the initial ordering stages as the staff efficiently try to 'chivvy' you along quickly to make your selections.
We found the courses 'came out of the kitchen' too quickly for our liking. We had 3 types of dishes, a soup, moules marinara, and then a mixed seafood platter; we just seemed to be constantly up and down to the kitchen...not a relaxing dinner.
Yes probably would do it again, perfect for lunch - but go somewhere more relaxed for dinner.

“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

We were first in the queue at opening time! The food was well priced and there was a fair selection. We got a little caught up in the moment and ordered a bit too much. The lobsters were well cooked and tasted good; as did the langoustines and tuna. The Squid was a little rubbery though and the Crab was pre-cooked and not fresh. Overall it was a different dining experience and certainly one that was worth trying. Perhaps a little over rated though.

“Seafood lovers must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

There are tons of reviews to know how to order. so no need to describe again.

Just go and order whatever you desire. We did for 4 people, there was no place on table. And paid 75€ with 1 bottle white wine.

“Best seafood in Barcelona ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We find this place only at last day. If we find this place earlier, we would have here every dinner! Good prices, fresh seafood! Strongly recommend to visit in Barcelona! Our big gambs were very tasty! I'll recommend to have not many small snacks.
