Although located in a nice neighbourhood only a short distance to the beach neither the food nor the service impressed. The black rice, although a usual favourite of mine, was way too salty. The plates seemed dirty and the waiter was in a bad mood....More

On a clear sunny day, it is a treat to sit on the front patio of El Rey de la Gamba 2. After touring the beach, come here for big, tasty mussels and delicious paella. Prices are reasonable, and service is personable.

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
