One of our friends was in La Bombeta few years earlier, when it was in different location. She said that tapas are great so we should go. She didn't have to convince us for a long time. We had to wait a bit for a...table, but in short.. it was definitely worth it! We ordered a bit of everything with sangria and vino tinto! If you are around Barcelonetta, definitely come here for some tapas.More

This is a fantastic restaurant with genuinely authentic Catalan cuisine. We had chiperones (baby squid), clams, la bomba, patata bravas, mussels, salad and tortilla patata. It was all beautifully cooked! My friends had sangria, my wife had a soft drink and I had beer,it’s not...great for wine but the food more than makes up for it! Cost wise is was very reasonable and we will most certainly be back. Be aware that they don’t accept credit cards but there is a cash point next door.More

They're like your neighborhood bar. Service is good. Though they dont speak english but u'd pretty much understand. Food is awesome. Try the bomba. Grilled squid, mussels. Miss the food already.

We visited Barceloneta in the evening and found this restaurant through a travel book. It is a local restaurant at the corner/ beginning of the Maquinista street. From the outside it wasn’t an inviting place, looking very basic, but people who knew this place came...in and soon it was completely full. Half of the clients were tourists like us who found the menu difficult. The waiter was extremely nice and helpful and with a sense of humor. ‘No English, no WiFi’ is written at the counter but an ENGLISH MENU would be VERY HELPFUL because we could have chosen better dishes that way. I could understand only half of the menu which was a pity. Their Bomba’s, potato balls with minced meat inside and mayonnaise topping, were delicious delicious every table ordered them. The artichokes were a disappointment. The escalivada was also average. Maybe seafood dishes were a better choice. Toilets are on ground level but are extremely small.More

I’ve eaten in a few restaurants in Barcelona but La Bombeta is so far one of the best in town regarding the delicioooos fooood & decent prices. Not a tourist restaurant/location but so soo simple and amazing/traditional food. I trully recomend it & I’ll come...again anytime!!More

An unforgettable experience, incredibly delicious food, and drinks! The first time I was taken there by my Catalan Friend, and later I took my friends there as well. Both occasions were exceptional and I will be coming back there for sure :) I truly recommend...this unique place for a must-visit!More

Excellent tapas! Honestly, given the reasonable prices for all menu items, cash is not a problem. We feasted on bomba, calamari, pork, along with delicious red house wine and sangria for less than 46€. Despite our linguistic differences, we communicated easily with our server who...was pleasant and efficient. Highly recommend the bomba and sangria, it was the best we had in Barcelona, this tapas place is the real deal, don’t miss it!More

We came here from a friend's recommendation and the tapas meal was great. No regrets. We enjoyed the bombas (must try), rabas, padron peppers, pincho moruno and a jug of sangria to share. Very reasonable priced and definitely worth a revisit.

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

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.
