If you like mediocre food and rude staff, this is the place for you. If you prefer good food and well behaved staff, there are many other places nearby in Barcelona.

Was recommended this place by guide and didn't regret visiting it. Food was very good (and drinks too!) and quite cheap, service very nice, cool location not far from Barcelonetta. Tried also local dessert crema catalana, yummy!

This is such an amazing restaurant. Nothing fancy but food is one of the best we have had - all freshly cooked. I recommend the Bombas, it's like fried potato balls and just melts in your mouth. The food is all very reasonably priced. The...More

Nice, low profile local restaurant with great tapas selection and "Bombas" - very kind and helpful non English speaking staff. Prices reasonable - cash only ;)

The place is traditional, must try it once. The food is amazing, they have fresh seafood, you also must eat the local desert. The staff is friendly, your order is served very quikly.

Was not a beautifully designed place but the food was cheap, popular even among locals. Nothing fancy, but provides a real taste of catalonian tapas. Close to the beach as well! And very affordable.

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
