This is my favourite restaurant in Barcelona near Port Vell. The seafood is always fresh and delicious and not very expensive and always come here every time I visit Barcelona and this is the 6th time I come here to Barcelona. Love Barcelona! Cheers!

I loved eating here. Food is delicious, it is not cheap but it’s worth it. Portions are generous, so don’t worry, you will be full when you leave! 😂

This restaurant was nice but probably wouldn’t eat here again. This is mainly because the paella was very gritty and the prawns were not fresh - they tasted like they had been defrosted. Shame really as the service was ok and we enjoyed the drinks....More

Food came within 5 minutes of ordering, great outdoor atmosphere where you can see Port Vell. Very happy with the accommodating service. Would visit again. Delicious pasta!

Menu laid out well, perfect for light lunches and big meals, for the value I expected less, but the generous meats and portion sizes make this a bargain. I would return for sure

After a massive morning of exploring everything Barcelona has to offer, we decided to stop in for a feed and a drink. I got the chicken paella and a jug of sangria. I was not disappointed. The meal was delicious and filled me up completely,...More

When you are in a tourist hot spot all the restaurants serve the same menu, so how do you choose the best in the group? This establishment seemed a little more upmarket than the others so we gave it a go . We chose 6...More

Normally we do not visit the large restaurants on the main tourist strips due to price but came here on a recommendation from someone. We ordered the seafood paella as recommended and the grilled sea bream as recommended by the waiter. Restuaraunt was fairly quiet....More

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
