Els Pescadors


Ratings and reviews

#2,215 of 9,127 Restaurants in Barcelona

Location and contact

Originally a meeting place for fishermen, the tavern transformed into an eatery when Poble Nou became an industrial hub and hungry workers filled the neighbourhood. In the 70s it became a place of refuge for young people from the area who were anxious for change. The old tavern, Els Pescadors, has withstood the test of time and the coming and going of trends. It has born silent witness to the deeds and events that have influenced the future of the city.

It is quite nice small restaurant which is located near the sea surrounded by old houses. Meals are good, servants are kind. You can try local tastes and sit in terrace.

Definitely fresh food, extremely tasty. Clean table cloths, friendly employees. Good choice of food, however sounds strange, that there were no shrimps in the restaurant. Every cafe in Barcelona has shrimps. May be i was unlucky. The rest all is perfect!!!

The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's

this area of town is the newly crowned technological
park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley
containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well
as a host of local and international high tech
companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents
and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of
