The staff are smart, very friendly, approachable and I enjoyed every conversation. Every question asked was met by enthusiasm and commitment never seen in the hotel.

Nice location in cool hotel. Friendly and efficient staff. Good view. But the food is so far below what you would expect. Fix. Should be easy in Barcelona

This restaurant is inside the very trendy W hotel. Everything is very white with a great view of the water. the food quality was excellent and the service was good. we needed to have a group dinner at 6:30pm, an unheard of early hour for Spain. Yet, everything was perfect with no hint that we were crazy to eat so... More

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!

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.
