On our visit to Barcelonetta we passed many restaurants looking across to the marina many of which looked touristy with usual offerings of paella and pizza but then stumbled upon L'Arros which was different. The same nice location, same view but a more intersting, tradional Catelonian menu. The tables were nicely set with linen table cloths and napkins which, combined... More

Dropped by this place on the way to the beach. Was recommended by a friend. The place is on a busy area in Barceloneta. Had to wait around 1 hour to be seated. I ordered the fried small fish, which was amazingly fresh, and well cooked. Then ordered the seafood paella. Which was the best I've had in Barcelona to... More

The staff was very friendly and attentive and the restaurant was clean with a nice ambience. The location is great for people watching our looking at the marina. Unfortunately the food was mediocre. It was my gf's first paella, ever and she was quite disappointed as a first timer about all the fuzz about paella. I had numerous paellas in... More

We chose this on spec. It was clean & the staff were nice & friendly. We ordered two different paellas, one meat & one seafood black paella. The food was excellent. For dessert we had creme brûlée & coconut ice cream which were both first class. The coffee was good. All in all a very good find.

We had read mixed reviews but our experience was 100% positive. A fun and refreshing outdoor location close to the marina but just away from the hustle-bustle to have a peaceful dinner. Our waiter ( I think his name was Michael) was very attentive and friendly. The service was prompt and he explained all the dishes and recommended a nice... More

I was being told about this restaurant for its delicious Paella. Lunch time, on my way to the restaurant, there were lots of catchy tempted restaurants nearby especially in the same street where l'Arros is! Luckily, I followed my instinct and I continue to search for this restaurant. As soon as I arrived, a nice guy was standing there in... More

I went with my dad to this restaurant after a quick research on Google and it was a good experience. Although the area is full of touristic restaurants, this one is full of locals and without people outside trying to push you inside of the place (hate that). Very good service, price and food!

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.
