We planed to go at WET pool bar but close due to rain, ended up at WAVE and that was just a 10, cool service W style with modern food but not too fancy, fine atmosphere. We moved to the lounge after and had a digestive by the fire pit, definitely a superb experience.

We spent about an hour-and-half here eating our way through the taster menu which was 7 courses, and bought for us as a gift. The food was excellent and the venue was pleasant and relaxing. The courses varied through a mixture of soup, seafood, veg and meat. The Veal was outstanding as the penultimate dish. We were chuffed with the... More

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

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.
