The parilla was great. Cold beer and good service. We got there at 8:00 but the food took longer because the bbq was just starting. Great view of the rambla.

We had been looking for good fish and found this restaurant on the Rambla. The fish of the day was excellent and the fries were fresh. Ask the waiter for the fish of the day. The chicken and sausage were cooked asada and looked good. Great view from the restaurant as it is accross the street from the beach.
