We ordered a grilled sea food platter and patatas bravas. The potatoes were yummy and the muscles were the best I ever had. Not a fan of razor clams but my partner thought these were also excellent. The clams were a bit disappointing. The squid...More

Tasty fresh seafood. It was quite expensive but worth it. Ordered baby octopus, squid and lemon sole. All were yum. Wish they had an option for a smaller tapas-type portion so we could try more dishes. The waitress was helpful in recommending dishes.

This was recommended by our tour guide and as a first day/meal in Barcelona, we went with the recommendation. TIPS: 1) To my surprise, it was actually quite pricey. 2) There's a line but it's mostly tourist aka tourist trap - but it moves fast....More

We ordered fried anchovies and grilled razor clams. They are both good. Their razor clams are bigger, kind of chewy. If you prefer tender kind, this is certainly not for you. Since it is in the open market, there are constantly lots of people walking...More

Fresh and wonderfully prepared seafood. Looks so good and tasted incredible. The grilled cuttlefish is a MUST. Will go back to Barcelona just for the food here !

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
