Visited as a group of 15 and had so much food! Portions are huge and all the dishes were great. €30 each and included a few glasses of wine-would definitely visit again.

Having seen the generally positive reviews for this restaurant, we booked a table for dinner here a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, the smell from the lobster tank was so overpowering I couldn't bear to stay long enough to consider eating there! It was easy...More

Before you come to this restaurant you have to empty your stomach in all senses, because every dish inside this building is more than big and very tasty, I mean delicious. a good place to visit after a walk in La 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
