This was probably the best meal I had in Barcelona. the restaurant is very basic so do not expect silver cutlery or attentive service, in fact you have to go collect the food yourself once it has been cooked. The food is however excellent so the lack of elegance in this restaurant doesn't matter. They have all kinds of fresh... More

Great value seafood restaurant. The menu is simple, seafood is fresh. They present the fishes on a stand and you pick your choices.

I had no expectations when I came to this restaurant. You line up and choose from the seafood that's available. Then you pay, ask for soup, bread, salad and drinks (if you wish) and sit down until your number is called. Dishes are served when they are ready; you pick them up from the kitchen. We had the deep-fried baby... More

Great seafood with with cheap price. The crab was just 8/9 euro each, with better quality that I had in some expensive restaurants. You just come here for real food, ignore the environment. Normally have to queue for 20 minutes at least.

If you love fresh fish, this is the place for you. You can choose your "alive" meal directly from the desk and the staff will cook it for you as you want. Cheap like a fish market, good as a restaurant!

Fabulous seafood at cheap prices, the only drawback was having to queue for 40 minutes but well worth the wait!

Excellent fresh fish that you can choose and cooking like you want (fried or grilled) It is one of the best place in Barcelona so you need to be here early if you don't want to wait a lot befor eat.

The food here is very nice, where you can choose fresh seafoods and they will cook it for you. The downfall is, all throughout the meal you will hear in a speaker all over a kitchen staff calling a number for a meal which is ready to be collected..you will feel like you are eating in a cafeteria.

The restaurant seems more like a fish market, it's very noisy and crowded with a large selection of fresh & alive seafood. You can pick your dish and the way you would like it to be cooked. Prices are very good and the food is amazing. Despite the very simple atmosphere it's definitely a must go for seafood lovers! Full... More
