We love coming here on a Friday afternoon to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the people passing tapas and beer on the counter. They make their own beer and their ensaladilla is great!

We visited this location for dinner based upon a recommendation from our Segway tour guide. The location was reminiscent of a bar, and extremely crowded. Do not make the mistake of leaving based upon your initial impression. We were fortunate enough to get seating. The...More

This has to be one of the best traditional bars in Barceloneta. From the bar tenders to the freshly poured beer (locals ask for a cana about 250 ml of beer and refresh with another cold one). The food was good and all in all...More

Walk right in and enjoy the atmosphere and very good tapas. Bar seats means you get close to the action, kitchen is partly open. Very memorable dinner!

If you want a romantic dinner, then look at other options. But if you want good beer/drinks and tasty food in a lively atmosphere, then this is it. Spanish tapas bar with service out of the ordinary :-)

Great food, great friendly service. Try the sirloin with foie gras. Get your kid a granjero sandwich and don't forget dessert. This place is with a detour.

A Really nice little tapas place! The restaurant is a big bar with barstools and you order over the counter! Try the meat with foie gras! I liked the feeling alot!

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
