We've been wanting to come here for a while as the reviews are great and there's always a local crowd lining up to get in. My partner and I ordered the chorizo in dry white wine, patatas bravas and the garlic prawns - all fantastic! We're coming back tomorrow to try the other tapas!

We went there based on all the recommendations and it was totally worth it. If you love seafood then it is the place to be and there are a wide variety of tapas options. We were super happy with the food and great service.

We chose it because it was full of locals and they ordered their "bombetas" a kind of meat stuffed potato and breaded. Very very good. You have to try it !! We had an excellent red wine and some wonderful prawns. You can not miss this tapas restaurant !!

My family and I were in Barcelona for a couple of days. When in Spain, tapas is a must but where to go? My husband found La Bombeta online and it had great reviews and I can see why. There was not one dish we didn't like! Mussels, olives, manchego cheese, chorizo and bombeta's (meat filled mashed potato ball). The... More

Went for brunch in Barceloneta and found heaven. Impressive variety of fish and meat eats. Living like a local and eating like one. Great value for money. Cosy ambience. Authentic. The owner/ manager knows what he is doing. I wish I could come back. Fishermen, be blessed.

Picked this place based on the large number of positive reviews on here at the time we were visiting Barcelona. The restaurant is a little tucked away but is definitely worth making the effort to find. The large number of local Spanish diners showed it was good quality, as did the queue to get in despite it being tucked away... More

I understand that when you are visiting another country you should at least try to learn some words but here it would not help you at all. There is a sign that says 'we do not speak english', also no wifi is available so google translate is of no use also no credit cards are accepted. Very arrogant service. The... More

If you want to eat like a local then this is the place to go. Be aware that there is no wifi and cash only. It does get busy at certain Spainish 'dinner' times. The sangria is good as is the prices of the food & the serving size. The prawns were very dirty, but the bombas and the mushrooms... More

Original place to taste classic Spanish dishes. Sea food really fresh and well cooked. Most times crowded.

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.
