Here on business. Solo. Yelp reviews led me here and didn't lead me astray. This place is absolutely perfect. The complete Catalan cuisine experience. The chefs here take absolute care for everything that is cooked. Sit at the bar and watch these culinary surgeons masterfully and tastefully create master pieces of food art. Even though I'm not a huge fan... More

Our son had found this restaurant a couple years ago on a trip to Barcelona. When we decided to head there, he told us we HAD to eat there. He was right; it was so worth going. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed. Food was delicious. I especially liked the pa amb tomaquet, so much that I reorder it again... More

It was not a cheap end tapas bar but definitely... More

If you like ordering lots of different dishes for the table and just sharing them amounts everyone, this is ideal for you! Every dish was delicious! It wasn't a cheap lunch by any means but then again we ordered 5 dishes between 2 of us so we were happy to pay for the quality! Only thing that was slightly disappointing... More

A quiet little hideaway with lovely food and English speaking staff. A specific but very varied tapas menu. I particularly recommend the duck and the rice with octopus and sausage. We ordered the shrimp from barceloneta, they were not cleaned well and quite small however very tasty and succulent. At €17 for 8 small shrimp is the reason I can... More

This is the place you need to visit for the real thing in Barcelona. Tapas-style small dishes, very creative, seafood and meat. Everything freshly cooked, it may take some minutes. Superb service. Adequate pricing. Reservation recommended.

A great small tapas restaurant close to badalona. A good selection of fresh seafood tapas (the sea urchins were excellent) with the usual classics served with a twist. We weren't disappointed.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
