Great food & prices with authentic atmosphere & friendly staff. We were four people, sharing five great tapas: Bombas, cuttle fish, chicken in soy, aubergine & calamares, all great!

The place was great. So authentic and really crowded. The staff was welcoming and really nice (not to mention that the waitress there was the most beautiful woman I saw in Barcelona!). The food was amazing and the prices were reasonable. In other words, go visit it, it is worth it!

Was recommended by our hostel staff and hit a perfect spot! Great varieties of delicious tapas and their sangria just puts the cherry on the top. For sure it was the strongest I had in Barcelona :)

This is popular, bustling tapas bar in the seafood tapas heaven of Barceloneta. I could begin and end at with fantastic, crispy and delicious artichokes. They were that good. We also had a bottle of the house rose which was crisp and went well with the food. We ordered grilled prawns which were very nice because they were so fresh.... More

We went with our two boys (9 and 11) - as we had been recommended this establishment as a family friendly tapas restaurant - we were impressed - really welcoming, lots of different tapas available and our fussiest son ate a plateful! Says it all really! We'll go back next time we visit Barcelona and hope we can get a... More

We ordered calamari rings, pickled sardines mussels in marinara sauce, cuttle fish and potato chips. The cuttle fish and the calamari were delicious, the mussels were just the best, we ordered another plate of potato chips just to dip it in the marinara sauce. We really didn't like the sardines, but minor. They didn't have an English menu for the... More

After reading such amazing views about Jai-ca in various guidebooks/blogs and recommendations, we were super excited about the prospect of delicious seafood and tapas in a local gem. I have never been so disappointed in my life, from the frosty welcome, the mess up on drinks order, the waiter scribbling on the menu to tell us what to have and... More

Jai-Ca is without a doubt one of my favourite places to go for tapas in Barcelona. Located just off the main strip in Barceloneta it is easy to walk to from las ramblas/born/gotico. It's a really chilled place in terms of being able to kick back and relax - they will not rush you even when they are busy and... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
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.
