After a week with Mediterranean food, we wanted something else. We were going to take a walk on the beach, and this restaurant is very close. The restaurant looks like a kebab place, except for the white tablecloths. The menu is a mess and could use a makeover. For example are most of the vegetarian dishes listed as starters, but... More

Moreover , they refused to give water and said we need to buy it instead . I could not find my mobile and... More

Definitely recommend the chicken tandoori, shish kebabs, chicken biryani and chicken karahi. Great... More

Let's clarify, at the entrance the restaurant may look like typical kebab shop but it is not. Enter, take a sit and order some Indian food. I took vindaloo gambas and i'm not disappointed. Thank me later.

The indian food they serve here is really tasty and has very good ratio of prize/quality of food. I've tried both the fixed menu a few times but also A la Carte and never been disappointed. It's a shame they don't do more regarding decor, signs outside and also with the pictures of the food. What you see from outside... More

My sister and I just happened upon this restaurant on the way to the beach. It is a block away from the water. The service was great and the food was incredible! The portions were perfect and the food was exceptional! Highly recommend. Balal was our server. His English and Spanish were very good and he took excellent care.

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.
