We ordered “chipirones”, paella, wine and irish coffe for desert. The bill was 105 €. The paella was ok but not amazing. The place is very very nice, in front of the seaport. The servcie was perfect. Overall quite expensive but it is worth it.

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
