“Popular place”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Huge menu with a large variety of tapas and main meals. It seemed very popular with both locals and tourists, and the food was good quality at a reasonable price.

“great eating”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

I have eaten here several times over the years. Great position both its view over the Marina across the road. The food is consistently good and the prices of both food and wine are reasonable for Barcelona. My kids also loved their lasagne. Take a stroll down to the beach 5 minutes away to walk off the meal.

“Good location and great food!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We had a lunch in that place. Seafood was cooked perfect – we ate the best Galician octopus and portion was big enough to saturate 2 people. The seafood paella was also amazing.
