Just popped in for a drink while walking around the harbour. Staff very accommodating. Lovely area to watch life go by while having a small beer.

Place for Sangria and Tapas. Close to harbour promenade. Menu designed for tourists. Affordable prices. They have glass wall to protect against cold wind. Works well and you can sit outside in windy weather.

We stopped here for a drink. Once seated we were greeted by a waitress with a stern face holding a pen and paper waiting to take our order. When I asked if I could see a menu before placing an order she snatched 3 menus from behind us and slammed them on the table. We placed our order and after... More

It's a nice restaurant, the food came quickly and my goat cheese salad had exactly what I like. The toast with garlic butter was nice too. The seats are comfy and the have heaters for at night. The waiters were kind a loud though, joking around and messing with each other. It was a bit distracting. They were nice enough... More

Stopped here for drinks one evening in early January. Nice location near the waterfront, we had some drinks and tapas, both were ok. We sat outside where they had heaters and cover to protect from the cold. Overall nice location and service was good.

I had it in a sandwich, bit weird but so lovely! Warm and oniony and a big serving - actually you'd be better off just having a slice of tortilla without the bread, it's too much for a lady like what I am. ;)

Been last week at this restaurant with friends of mine in our visit to Barcelona. To be honest i really enjoyed the sea food paella. Was delicious and hot in a very cold and rainy day. I would go again. The only problem the staff! The waitress came to ask if we are ready to order 3 times in 10... More

I usually never write a review, but please do your stomach a favor and stay away. We ordered pizza, prawns, Olives, tomato bread and sangria. The positive - sangria was actually really good. Christina was our waitress and worst service I've had in probably a year at least. The olives we never got. She never smiled once and we felt... More

Can't breathe for all the cigarette smoke, and the spaghetti with salsa Nepolitan tastes exactly like soggy canned pasta. Potatoes bravas were meh. Prices aren't bad, which is a good thing since the food was seriously terrible. Husband was unimpressed with his hamburger, as well.

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.
