Great sea food soup and great wines. Paella is good and the dishes are big, so we shared one paella between two. Right next to the port. Good, efficient service.

The good thing first-amazing view, nice outdoor terrace, friendly staff,but that's all. We had calamari a la romana,which was ok, little bit overpriced but ok. After that, we had arroz negro, which was bad. There were about 5 pieces of seafood in and the black...More

Having just arrived we wandered along the harbour side and this restaurant had a good feeling. We were greeted warmly, drinks were offered in a friendly way and the menu was easy to understand and we enjoyed it very much. Everyone around us were relaxed...More

I stopped by on a whim for the Mussels tapas and 2 glasses of house Rioja. Delicious fresh Mussels served with 2 large lemon wedges. Generous portion. Certainly acceptable wine. 15.50€ plus tip. Excellent view of the Port Vell harbor. Good service even though it...More

Looked forward to a highlight meal during our short break. Service is not to be expected at this restaurant. We ordered two main dishes of baked cod and salmon fillet. To fill in for time for the meals to be 'cooked to order', we were...More

Like everyone else eating here, we stopped on our way from the beach. Food is pretty good - seafood platter was worthwhile, as was the salad. The reality is, this is a beach restaurant in one of the busiest places in Barcelona. If you expect...More

15 of us had dinner here and it was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was very good indeed. Though I'd stick with the normal paella rather than the lobster version (not a lot of lobster). Its located right next to the marina so...More

We came to this restaurant on our final day of the holiday as we had yet to eat anywhere near the Marina and we had enjoyed some lovely sea food dishes in other restaurants. We chose this restaurant as it was so busy and all...More

A nice area to sit and have a lazy lunch, but poor food and high cost. But it a pop in place without thinking and it was a miss. Nice prompt service

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
