Glad you enjoyed the waterfront vistas, they are pretty special we have to admit. Being absolute waterfront is one element of Hemingway's which makes it so popular. To be able to sit back and enjoy a nice meal overlooking the marina and the beautiful boats...More

Such a huge improvement over the previous set up so don't get this confused with Barcelona. The atmosphere and quality of decor are outstanding and the menu and quality of food leave nothing to be desired.

Thank you for your honest review. Agreed that a technicality with the register should not prevent you getting served a drink, so we would like to apologise for that situation and your experience.
