“Fresh, local seafood served by the restaurant owner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Value for money place with great service and local seafood. We had prawns, anchovis, octopus and calamaris, grilled artichokes. The bill was reasonable ca.50 euro for 4 people. Definetely recommend for all seafood locers!!!

“Best fish in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Very simple and basic place that serves the best, freshest fish & seafood in the world in my opinion. Come early as they don't take bookings and the queue can be very long. If you have to wait, put your name down on the waiting list and order some drinks that you can sip in the street until a table is available. I personally recommend merluza a la plancha (grilled hake)

“Great local sea food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Found this place on trip advisor and fell in love with it. Local food, fresh fish and a lovely atmosphere. Its a small place and it gets packed so either come early or make reservations.

“Local no frills experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We found this little gem in a guide book. As our hotel was just down the road we decided to give this a go. The restaurant is hidden in a side street. When we arrived a number of people already queued outside. We waited about 20
Minutes before getting a little table in the rear room. It certainly was a no frills dining room, with the fridges lined next to the wall. There service was very friendly and quick. Food was served after a short waiting time and it was absolutely delicious. Fish tasted real fresh and was prepared with only basic ingredients which made it a real genuine tasting experience.

The atmosphere in this place was brilliant, it was packed and buzzing. We also seemed to be the only tourists in there which made it feel even more special. When next in Barcelona we will definitely visit this restaurant again.

“I'd fly to Barcelona just to eat at Can Mano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

This is my third visit to Can Mano - we come everytime we are in Barcelona, and the food is exquisitely simple and delicious. The grilled cuttlefish is out of this world. Everything seems to be cooked very simply - just oil, salt and I think parseley. This is by far my favourite restaurant in Barcelona. Service is very friendly.
