Thanks to our lonely planet guide, we decided to give this place a try for lunch. So glad! Very authentic place. Place was packed with locals watching soccer on a Saturday afternoon. Great vibe. Nice gazpacho. Anchovies special with "fried fish bones" was a pleasant...More

After a day at the beach we arrived here only to find it jam packed. With no tables available we walked a block further and found they actually have a second building. Having never really had tapas we read mixed things about the price. Lonely...More

Appeared to be the locals top choice in the neighborhood for tapas - every seat was taken and we didn't hear any of the diners speaking English. My friend, who recommended this spot to us, promised the best patatas bravas in the city, and this...More

The food was amazing. We got very good tapas and very fast service. You are eating with locals so not that touristic.

I thought it would be third time lucky for Jai Ca, as my partner - who lives in the neighbourhood - has often been in the past and enjoyed it. However, again I was let down by the awful attitude of the serving staff. The...More

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

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
