I've been standing in line for an hour, waiting to enter the restaurant. I've heard it was pretty good, but it turned out it was also extremely popular :D so, when you point your finger at something, they start to cook it. all the sea-foods are beautiful and fresh! but, it's not really a restaurant, it's more self-service type cafe...

We visited for lunch, a bit late perhaps and there was still a line forming at the door and the restaurant was full. Maybe because we were late there were some things already sold out. Nonetheless, everything we had was amazing, especially the fish soup and the lobster. The concept is really fun, you choose your seafood at the beginning,... More

You enter and choose the fresh fish from the counter. They will give you a ticket with a number. You can seat wherever you want. They will call you by PA to pick up your ready food from kitchen. Prices are popular, this makes restaurant widely used by turists. Fish is always fresh. Service is quite fast.

I personally allergic to not fresh seafood. We have ordered king prawn, cutle fish, calamari and clams. All of them are just so fresh and delicious. I think their seafood might just cured my seafood-allergy! We tried seafood in Vancouver, sf, Japan, two and this place has the best quality of seafood in terms of freshness and juiciness. Will def... More

I would come here when the business opens, lunch at 1PM and dinner at 8PM. You may encounter long line up but theirs adequate seating if you are among the first 50 people. Once you make it through the entrance, have someone in your party to hunt for a table, especially if you are 3/4 of the first 50 people.... More

We dropped at this restaurant after visiting Sagrada Famila - 5 mins walking distance from the monument. We chose octopus, lobster, crab, 4 prawns, calamari which was cooked fresh for us and tasted like what fresh seafood should taste like! We had bread and salad to go with it along with soft drink and a glass of wine. Total bill... More

If you are in Barcelona and you like seafood do not miss this restaurant. I liked the most calamari, pulpitos and the salad. Everything is great there, it worth the waiting and the prices are ok.

This restaurant is definitely the best one I have ever visited with seafood menu! Everything is fresh and looks very appetizing!;-) Lobsters are even moving their claws! There is a lot of seafood here, you can surely find something which you prefer: shrimps, oysters, squids, octopuses, mussels, lobsters and a lot of different clams and of course fish! You can...

It was a simple enough concept- you choose your seafood, the items get weighed & cooked and you pick up from the counter when they call your table ("mesa") number (which they helpfully announced in Spanish and in English). The queue can be long though, even though we are talking offpeak, and past 2pm. Granted, the Spaniards eat lunch only... More
