“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Probably the best Indian / Pakistani food in Barcelona. I've been to the others and have to give this the highest marks.

I've lived in Barceloneta for 10 years and must have walked by Mar Brava hundreds of times before going in. Why? Because it doesn't look like an Indian / Pakistani restaurant...and the name is Mar Brava.

The fact is their kitchen is very strong. I say that as a chef at Restaurant Me - one of the top ranked restaurants in Barcelona on Trip Advisor. The flavors of the dishes are perfectly balanced. Definitely the best Tarka Dahl I've ever had. Tinda is another great choice.

Don't be thrown off by the Doner Kebab in the window. The kitchen in this place is amazing.
