Amazing sea food for a very reasonable price. We highly recommend this place for anyone who loves the sea food. You choose your food when you enter the restaurant and then is cooked for you.

You walk in (or should I say wait on line) and there is fish on ice. You choose what you want, say how you want it cooked, and they bring it to the kitchen to cook. Amazing, incredible, delicious!

I went there with my wife, we wait at the door and the employee was not nice not only with us but with all the costumers. So we thought if there is a lot of people waiting must be good. NO We start choosing the food we wanted to eat and the advice from the server was to take more... More

I know this place is very well known among tourists and it is recommended by many, there is even a line on the door. It is overpriced, yes the fish is fresh and that is the only good thing. They just cook the food without any special preparation, the cooks aren't even chefs. You can go to a very good... More

This restaurant chain in Barcelona is very well known for fresh fish at an affordable price: it's like a fish market, you choose your favourite fish and seafood, how you want it cooked (grilled, fried, etc.), then you pay and they call your table number when ready! In 5 we ate lot of fried (baby squids, little fishes), grilled (squids,... More

I love the concept of selecting what you want, how much you want and how you want it to be cooked. We were a party of 5 and we tried lots of different fishes. Everything was very tasty and absolutely delicious. We will go back for sure. And by the way, we managed to skip the queue by going 15-20... More

we came here by recommendation to try seefood. It was good, but during the whole experiewce I felt this is not the right place to come, as only tourists have been there, the staff spoke proper english, etc. The quliaty might be good, but still I didnt enjoy the overall experience

Very tasty seafood! We ordered few things + beer and paid 50 euros un total, that seems to be a lot but we were extremely full! Don't go there if you want a perfect service- you won't find it there.

We found this amazing restaurant just up the road from where we were staying, and we were at first a little taken aback because it looks like a fishmongers! But then we realised we could pick exactly what you wanted from the fresh fish and seafood on display. It's a little basic (plastic trays and tables, they call out your... More
