Yeah, it was ok. Stepped up to the trough like the other tourists. Go to El Cangrejo Loco instead - especially during the afternoon. It has a better view and better food.

We went here for lunch having had it recommended by the hotel. When we arrived my parents realised they had been there before & commented on this to our very efficient waiter who then gave us all a glass of bubbly before taking our order.
The food was very nice and if I had to make a complaint it is that it was bit overpriced but it is in the Port Olympic area so that is to be expected. (€15 for Paella - less than 1/2 mile down the road it is €10 including a drink!)
However I would still recommend it as the experience was excellent - service, food and atmosphere all above average.

We went there with the family during weekday lunch time and had a very good prix-fixe lunch for 4, which included 3 courses, a bottle of decent wine and coffee - overall a very good value. It's location is also very good being situated next to one of Barcelona's famous beaches.

Great place to go if you're looking for seafood not too expensive. Basic restaurant, but food, wine and service very good and bill not too shocking at the end. There is a lot of very similar restaurants in this area but this was the only busy one. And there seemed to be a lot of local people eating here. If you're out for a quiet romantic meal this isn't really the place to go as it is very hustle bustle. But overall a great place in a nice area.

We decided to have lunch ‘at the beach’ on our final day of a 3 day break. We were spoilt for choice at Port Olympic as there were rows of restaurants along the pier. We chose the busiest which was also full of Spaniards!
We sat in the marquee area and counted about 500 ‘covers’ plus probably 200 more inside. The place was absolutely buzzing with activity with waiters literally running about!
The service was really fast in keeping with the general energy levels in the place. We were given complimentary olives and tapenade whilst we selected from the ‘lunchtime specials’ menu. My wife had a starter of mussels followed by seafood Fideuà (like paella only made with noodles)and I had calamari followed by and seafood paella, both followed by Catalan Cream Custard. All washed down by beer. Delicious!
Then came a tray of complimentary cakes are several glasses of liqueur.
And all that for 10 Euros each!!!! The meal bargain of our trip!!
Great staff, great atmosphere and amazing price.
