It is simply amazing! You choose there what you want to eat and they will cook it for you right away. Few types of mussels, octopus, tuna fish, shrimps (small and giant ones), lobsters, squids, crabs, cuttlefish, ALL FRESH! I had big shrimps on grill, baby octopus and mussels. The most tasty mussels I've ever eaten. If you are in... More

The cooking style of Paradeta and Barcelona was somewhat like Taiwanese food. The seafood was very fresh and I really enjoyed the experience. The price was a little higher than usual restaurant aside. It cost me about 61 euros for my wife and me.

When entering the restaurant, it reminds of a seafood market - the sea inhabitants such as calamari, mussels, crabs and many more whose existence we have not even been aware of, are on the counter, all fresh. Ask the lady behind the counter what you would like to have, may ask her for suggestions as well. Then, all the food... More

This is a rather unsophisticated restaurant.Tables are cafe style and the decor is basic. If you want seafood with an added sauce dimension forget it, if you want fresh seafood from the ice bed, cooked to order in the time it takes to eat a tasty soup starter then this is for you. Very reasonably priced and the freshness and... More

I am a fish lover, but I never seen anything like this. You have to order directly from the fishmonger which fish you want and how much and they give a number. They will cook what you ordered and you will enjoy a true unique experience of freshness and deliciousness. For two people we spent 40€ which is not too... More

The line forms before opening! Worth it? For us an emphatic yes. We chose clams and squid and lobster and shrimp. Accompanied by salad and bread and adult beverages. You pay by the weight of how much of what you order. We would highly recommend.

This was the most freshest seafood experience that I have ever had! You pick your fresh raw seafood, and it is cooked and served fresh on the table in minuets! They have a nice affordable wine selection as well! I recommend waiting in line 10-15 mins before the restaurant opens because this is such a popular attraction! This is a... More

We really enjoyed the concept behind this restaurant -- choose your seafood from the enticing display of fresh fish and shellfish on ice at the front counter, decide on a salad or not, choose your beverage, and pay. Once you find your table, you wait to hear your ticket (mesa) number called, then go to the kitchen window to pick... More
