Description: En Maremagnum, con espectaculares vistas al Port Vell y el Skyline de Barcelona. La Cerveceria se encuentra en la planta baja justo al lado de la barra de mariscos, para disfrutar las esplendidas tapas marineras. Es un magnifico escaparate de los productos del mar preparados a la vista del cliente, que tambien puede pedirlas para llevar. En la Braserie, al mas puro estilo parisino y con el lema "Comer marisco ya no es un lujo", hace mas de 15 anos que nuestros clientes disfrutan de nuestras bandejas de marisco recien cocido y los obligados pescados al horno segun la pesca del dia.

“Fence it with barbed wire to protect tourists going inside it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

This is just a trap for tourists with overpriced and disgusting food. Start warp engines to get away from it as fast as you can ! Dont even approach it ! Be advised !

“too turistic and expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

The place has a good position: is the first one at Mare Magnum. The place is fantastic for a sunny day because you can eat outside and relax in front of the beach. The service is nice as well but it's too expensive for what it offers. I was there with a colleague and we spent 30 euros for a paella, some fried vegetables and a beer. and the paella was not so nice, too oily and heavy.

“Our 1st paella”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

After a very cold night it was sunny weather so this was a perfect place to soak up the sun and enjoy the view of the Port Vell. We had 2 paellas (for 5 people) crayfish & Valencia. The rice was ok but the crayfish was dry. More than we could possibly eat. While the service was ok, the waiter was so pushy about the fact that the bill would not include a tip (told me twice!) that he did not get one.
