Waves serves the W Hotel as an in-house restaurant. As it has a captive audience and a prime location overlooking the pool-deck and the beach beyond, it benefits from its location. The staff are drop-dead gorgeous and so so helpful - but ...... once the order has been taken and the food has been served there is a long long... More

We booked the Wave restaurant and could not fault the amazing service, especially from Mark and Pedro who absolutely made our evening. The young lady on the Wave restaurant reception was so lovely and couldn't have been more helpful (I wish I had her name to mention too). The restaurant Manager recommended the nightclub which we also thoroughly enjoyed and... More

Bad, bad restaurant. Attempted to order drinks numerous times with little success. The food took over an hour and mixed messages from the staff meant that we had to order twice from different menus. The food was overly priced, the portion size small, and the quality average to poor at best. Will not return.

Lovely venue, super view and delicious food. The two waiters made our meal, going the extra mile and even bringing a glass in water unprompted when my Mom had a coughing fit. Spanish tapas starter to share was fabulous, especially the chicken croquettes, and my scallops main course was to die for! Thoroughly recommend!!

We had a great anniversary dinner here- the tuna tataki, beef filet, and the creme catalan were delicious!!!! We also got a special platter of chocolate covered strawberries as a gift from the staff- what a special night!

Breakfast buffet was one the best! It is the only restaurant at the W that serves breakfast and can be very busy which yields a less attentive staff and would recommend heading down on the earlier side and definitely not during the last 15- 20 minutes that it is open... had to wait for a table and hostess was visibly...

Came here on our last night, service was excellent and attentitive and the hotel as a whole is amazing and sets the scene. We ordered 2 glasses champagne which was lovely and lobster rolls to start which we found bland to be honest and nothing special. I ordered the scallops for main on which I only received 3 scallops accompanied... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
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.
