Do your self a favor and try this restaurant. This place is in Barceloneta, but feels more authentic than the gimmicky beach restaurants. Jai-Ca might make the best potatoes bravas in all of Barcelona. All other tapas looked delicious as well. Further, I had a...More

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

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
