Best restaurant in Barcelona - don't tell anyone else. not much to look at from the outside but that's because they are focussing on the food. Organic wines, vegetables from their own garden's in the outskirts of Barcelona, and exquisite combinations. Do not leave without trying the aubergine tempura in honey. Yum Yum.

Being back in Barcelona, I definitely wanted to visit Somorrostro again and, of course, the food was once again fantastic. Each tapas is carefully thought out and the food combinations are exquisite. The atmosphere and service is equally great and I can recommend it to anyone wanting a wonderful evening out.

This is a small restaurant off the busy tourist area. The tapas offerings were presented on a chalk board as the ingredients are fresh and dependant upon what is available. The fresh fish was very nicely prepared, and the wine reasonably priced. A meal for 2 of 6 tapas with a bottle of wine cost us 78 Euros plus a... More

We went to Somorrostro after a tip of a local we met at the beach. We tried their (fish and seafood) tapas and really liked it. Both the taste as the presentation were excellent! The restaurant has a very nice local Spanish atmosphere and ambience and the service was very good as well. We stayed a good 2,5 hours there!... More

We booked a table for eight people last Saturday night. Everyone enjoyed the delicious food and wine. The restaurant was really busy but staff were attentive and helpful. Great atmosphere. Highly recommended. Our bill 40euros per couple. Reasonable price for a really great meal.

Fourth trip to Barcelona, new neighborhood, need new restaurants. First night, a search through TripAdvisor for choices in Barceloneta, found this fabulous place. A ten minute walk past the tourist restaurants with the hawkers, one block off the main street. Had a meal we won't forget. Spicy potatoes, pork rib lasagna, mussels and duck. All delicious, inventive and timed just... More

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.
