Came here with a group of four in the evening and was seated promptly. Affordable, yummy, seafood/tapas. It was busy, but the staff always helped us when we asked. Easy atmosphere, and great for small groups!

Really fancied some classic tapas rather than the new wave stuff that's overflowing in Barcelona at the moment. So we headed to this slightly out of the way location - very buzzy - mix of locals, tourists and international students and non-nonsense servers. Bravas were...More

Went for cheap and cheerful seafood - got a bit carried away as the options are quite generous and it’s really tasty, couldn’t finish! The waiter is great, so on the ball was actually fascinated watching him. Nice touch with a free little drink at...More

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
