We went here six years ago and loved food so much. So when we came back to Barcelona, we immediately had another meal here. What a disappointment! The seafood must be from last night. It tasted mushy and didn’t smell fresh. In fact my family all got sick to different degrees after a few hours. My son had diarrhea and started to vomit. The price was not cheap. A small portion of seafood platter costed €25 and a small portion of seafood paella costed €23. A small bottle of water costed €3.20. This restaurant is a shame!

Restaurant placed near Barceloneta. Food is good. Service is not bad. Seafood and sea fish. Wine choose is not small.

Very good food, good wine and perfect location makes this very decent place for lunch especially when the weather is nice. Typically, this kind of location, by the popular touristic route, would mean poor food and high prices. Yes, it's not cheap but you know what you are paying for.
We had duck pate, avocado with shrimps salad, grilled monkfish and tuna. All really simple but tasty.

Enjoying the location, the nice sun shine, good food and service. Especially the squid and the sol fish were very good and we paired it with a great bottle of local sparkling wine, a fantastic Sunday noon

We came to this restaurant 3 years ago and had a lovely meal, so was looking forward to eating here again........what a disappointment ! ... Overcooked asparagus. Overcooked calamari. Overcooked razor clams. Overcooked tuna. Cold vegetables. The paella wasn’t too bad. And it was over 100€…what a waste of money, they should be ashamed !!!
