We dropped at this restaurant after visiting Sagrada Famila - 5 mins walking distance from the monument. We chose octopus, lobster, crab, 4 prawns, calamari which was cooked fresh for us and tasted like what fresh seafood should taste like! We had bread and salad to go with it along with soft drink and a glass of wine. Total bill... More

If you are in Barcelona and you like seafood do not miss this restaurant. I liked the most calamari, pulpitos and the salad. Everything is great there, it worth the waiting and the prices are ok.

This restaurant is definitely the best one I have ever visited with seafood menu! Everything is fresh and looks very appetizing!;-) Lobsters are even moving their claws! There is a lot of seafood here, you can surely find something which you prefer: shrimps, oysters, squids, octopuses, mussels, lobsters and a lot of different clams and of course fish! You can...

It was a simple enough concept- you choose your seafood, the items get weighed & cooked and you pick up from the counter when they call your table ("mesa") number (which they helpfully announced in Spanish and in English). The queue can be long though, even though we are talking offpeak, and past 2pm. Granted, the Spaniards eat lunch only... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. You enter and stand in front of an amazing array of fish and other seafood, some that I am not sure what it is but it looks good. You choose what you want, let them know how you want it cooked, order your drinks. Good wine selection by the way. You pay... More

In six days we dined there twice! You choose the fresh seafood, the way you want it to be prepared, then get the number and table and wait until will be called. The soup is also very good. Try everything what's possible- you won't regret it! The prices are decent, there could be lot of visitors, but they have many... More

If you want fresh seafood and feel of spain. This is a must in Barcelona after Sagrada familia. Love their beer as well. Maybe not a good service but nice seafood on a reasonable price.

If you are a seafood lover this restaurant is a must to visit while in Barcelona. It looks like a fish market, you choose the fresh seafood, they weight it and cook it for you as you like. Very popular with locals so don't be surprised if you have to queue especially on saturday evening. We have been twice during... More

Don't worry you'll get the tittle if you go. This restaurant is an absolute must for seafood lovers but be prepared to queue . On entering choose the seafood you want from a large selection on counter it's weighed and cooked for you. A very simple dimming experience no need to dress up the cooking is also simple but simple... More

When we travel as a family we rarely eat at the same place. We are here twice in three days - it's that good! Feels like a fish market with a kitchen. Sea food so fresh it's still alive! Superb quality simply but perfectly cooked to order. Highly recommended - I'm getting hungry thinking about it!
