We went there based on the recommendation of a tour guide. We were looking for an alternative to the mediocre paella served in many of the restaurants on La Ramble and were looking for the real thing and the restaurant was within walking distance of where we were staying. Despite many of the rather negative reviews from many other members... More

An amazing paella, great flamenco live show, offered free welcome drinks and entries. A little bit expensive, but a great view and food. Totally worth it. Sugar was very welcoming.

He was very helpful and friendly, explaining all the dishes and couldn't do enough. The position of Shoko is just perfect for people watching and seeing all the boats leave and enter the marina.

Shoko is one of the most elegant clubs in Barcelona, but everytime I am there I feel that there is too much House played. What about hiphop and RnB? Maybe there are days where they play different music and I have not just been there yet. In general the club is very fancy, directly located at the beach, very central.... More

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
