Off the beaten tourist path and amazing. If you want authentic local food at a really good price…this is the place. We had olives stuffed with anchovies…amazing. Potatoes covered in a spicy garlic sauce… really good. Blood sausage…so yummy and snails….delicious and a must try....Super fast and friendly service. Nice lively ambience. We will be back to try lots of other stuff. Very decent prices. See my photos of the menu!!!More

We learned about la Bombeta from TripAdvisor but when the taxi driver said go there we were sure it was a must go for our week end in Barcelona. All is as exactly as you expect. Good, tasty and in a cozy yet traditional environment...animated by loud guests and super nice staff. Other than bombeta, don’t miss the caracoles (excellent). But honestly all we tried was good and did not disappoint us. Perhaps a bit pricy, but it is price for fame and in my opinion it is worth the experience .More

Came here for two meals whilst on holiday in Barcelona. The food was amazingly tasty and allowed me to explore some traditionally Catalan dishes. Very good value and the Bombas are a must, they’re very good! Service was great at all times and the atmosphere...in the restaurant is very pleasant and comfortable. Would definitely recommend!More

This was our last meal in Barcelona and it didn't disappoint! We only ordered tapas, but they were all delicious and nothing was left behind. The house Sangria was enough for multiple glasses at our table and was delicious for 15 Euro!

La Bombeta is a food itinerary but also a time machine. A journey through the typical Catalan cuisine, but also a travel back in the time when La Barceloneta was exclusively a fishermen village. Once you take a seat inside, you do have the feeling...that the look and feel of this place have never changed in the past 100 years. Also this is where still today, you can actually find the real Barcelona people hanging out for an happy hour, a meal or a digestif. The cuisine encompasses all the most traditional Catalan dishes: tortillas, croquettes, tapas, the torrades de Pages and of course las Bombas, home-made potatos filled with hot sauce (which also gives the name to the restaurant). All in pics. Everything is home-made and the atmosphere is totally rustic; the service is colloquial and the dish up is basic and unpolished. The focus is all on quality, not Instagram ;) “We don’t have internet here, but we prepare amazing bombas”. This writing on the bar wall perfectly summarises the spirit you will find here. Highly recommended!More

Loved the authenticity and food! We ordered a few samples, but wish we could have tried more. The Crema Catalana didn't disappoint!

Me and my partner were killing time on our last day and wanted tapas. This place was the best we’ve had, the service was quick and the prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend and return if I was in Barcelona again.

We went for dinner to La Bombetta and we were able to get a table as the restaurant was full. We ordered : patatas bravas (great), chipirones (delicious), chorizo al vino blanco (very good), pimentos padron (delicious) and the famous bombas (delicious). For dessert, we...had the crema catalana which also amazing. The table service by Miguel was fast and friendly. The prices are very reasonable; we paid for all including 2 drinks just 42 euros. Overall, highly recommended.More

I found this place by accident while browsing through the places with tapas next to the marina. It's a very authentic place with super nice tapas. It's so authentic that the guys here don't really speak English but service is SUPER quick and ok. I...would go here again!More

Great place with a local feel. Almost everyone orders the Bomba, which is good. Also ordered champigñones a la plancha and pimientes de padron. Both great though a little heavy on the salt on the peppers. Yes, ambitious to have 3 dishes when by myself...but don’t get to BCN often. Been here before for other tasty food. Service is good even though it is really busy. If you are 2 people and sit at a table for 4, you will likely be placed at another table (for 2) to allow larger groups to come and dine. Makes perfect sense. There are 2 restaurants with the same name. This one is inside. Not the one facing the main Passeig.More

No Kindness, very bad service. He was very mad against us for no good reasons since we arrived. You should not come if you want to enjoy some time with your friends or family.

This is a hidden gem near Barcalonetta, it seems very local and many locals also enjoys coming here. My personal favorite here is their Chipirones - it’s a big portion! They also have amazing Mussels in Marina sauce, which I also highly recommend. We went...here two times while we were visiting - coming back again!More

Great food place, located in Barceloneta, everything fresh, a lot of fish options and, of course, the famous Barceloneta Bomb, served with mayo and spicy peppers sauce. Impecable crema catalana also.

Worst service ever! Food was ok but nothing more. We got our bill and missed €0.10 because we counted wrong (by accident), just for this the waiter was so so angry! Toilet not clean and tables neither. Very crowded and noisy.

I think is no way to put the bicycle near the restaurant. I dont know it has changed the situation since. But the street is strait.
