“Great! Authentic! Friendly! Fresh”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We are from Germany and we wanted real authenic seafood! We found this place it was exactly what we were looking for! We had the seafood paella and grilled fish/seafood!! It was so fresh and delicious! A 1000 times better than in the tourist places. The service was extremely friendly and nice and the prices absolutely ok. We can recommend this place to everyone wo want real barcelonian seafood!!

“Horrible and not fresh food”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

My husband and i went here to have dinner. It looked nice from the outside, so we just went in. We were hungry and really wanted a good meal and especially the paella.
The service from the guy was horrible, the food not fresh at all. I am glad that i left my paella after a few bites, because during the night i was very nausious and not feeling good. This is not a place that i recommend and will tell people to avoid!

“Authentic tapas menu”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

What a lovely, authentic Spanish restaurant! Situated down a side street in the Barceloneta area, we found it purely on chance. The menu offers authentic spanish tapas as well as great main courses and wines. It's beautiful inside, tiles and family pictures adorn the walls and the staff are very friendly and are great at advising you on what to have to eat/drink. Definitely NOT a tourist trap like those facing the harbour.

“Fish restaurant near beach”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Small fish restaurant on a side street, away from the sea front. Good food, not too expensive. Lots of photos on the wall of previous visitors - presumably famous ones! Well worth a visit and surely better than a pizza on the sea front.
