Really enjoyed sitting here on the edge of la Boqueria. Whole fish and razor clams were great as was the potatoes. Friendly, efficient service even when packed! Very good spot!

When walking in the food market we stopped here for a quick bite. Tapas does not take to long to serve and it tastes really good

Its a (mainly seafood) eatery in the middle of the food market... Yes you are squished in. Yes its touristy. Yes the wine glasses are small. The fish is fresh. The experience is priceless. Relax, enjoy tasty seafood and watch people exploring the market. Yes, I'd go back. We went just before 12 noon and managed to get seats. Any later then people queue in the isles and you have to wait a very l o n g time. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.

We ordered a "salpicon de mariscos" and half of it was surimi (cheap fish with an artificial brab flavor). We complained to the friendly waitress and she just smiled not even trying an explanation or an excuse. Such a thing happens these days in the famous Boqueria market.
