Caballito Del Mar is sort of a fancy restaurant and that considered, together with the quality and appearance of the food, prices really aren't high.
The menu makes it extremely difficult to chose, but our experience is, that at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what you chose; it's all really delicious and wellmade.
The outside seating area is huge and offers really nice sunset views.
We had absolutely no problems with the waiters; they were polite and service was fine; nothing out of the extraordinary, but certainly not bad either.
Quite unusual, you can have paella for one person only.

Decided to book a table at this restaurant because of its excellent location at La Llonja and it seemed very popular. When we arrived for our dinner we were not shown to a reserved table and felt as if we had been put at the nearest free one right next to the pavement. The staff virtually ignored us throughout the evening to focus on a larger party and can be best described as sullen and arrogant. We had to ask for butter and knives to use with our bread. The food itself was ok and certainly edible but nothing special. The place seemed chaotic and disorganised and no one seemed to be in charge. We would not go back there and will not recommend it to anyone else.

Awful service

Food ok

Trades off its location only

Dinner for 6 people and just ignored for a lot of the meal. Wines and certain fish were out of stock. Generally chaos as an operation. Shame because it's a nice location

We were looking for a romantic restaurant for a mesl for 2 while on holiday with friends abd this restaurant was in a nice location to people watch and to see the sun going down
The tables are well presented with smart white cloths and had a superior feeling
We did not see muscles on the menu but they quickly agreed that they were available in a choice of sauces -which was very accomodating.We had the paela which was interesting but a little salty and probably not the best we have had during our stay but very pleasant
The service was reasonable,the atmosphere romantic and the food good if a little over priced but all in all a good venue for a romantic meal for 2

Excellent food, quality ingredients and simple presentation. Very good service, a little expensive but so worth it
