More ways with mussels than I could have imagined. Try the rochefort cheese and creamy sauce if like me you believe diets are not for holidays.

Mussels galore served in so many different, delicious ways, with good options for non-mussel lovers. Service was great, atmosphere friendly and cosy. This place was busy when most other places were quite empty, and many diners seemed to be locals.

Makes a change in Barcelona, only muscles! Good variety, quality and service. Try their 'Pan con tomate'. Good location.

If you like or love muscles, this is the place for you. Huge portions of delicious fresh muscles for around 8-10€. You can easily share an entree but I'd just get two!

The atmosphere is like a tavern's, colours and scents awaking one to the fish and shellfish side of Barcelona. I took mussels with small octopi, in the "salmon"-coloured sauce accompanying them tastily. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to eat my food with my fingers in a place where this is commonplace, and if one is looking for a lively place to eat, this is it. Service is good and quick. It's a place I would come back to for shellfish dishes. In French, we have "brasseries" - sort of pub where easy to eat dishes are served. This would be an equivalent of that.
