When we got in the restaurant we sat at a table, but they made us sit at a smaller one, even though the most of the tables were empty. We ordered 5 plates, but on our table couldn't fit over 2. For some reason the...More

Not too much, not too little, just the right amount of food in every single plate. Not a nouvelle cousine restaurant but if you want real authentic spanish food you must come here.

A great find. Great tapas, great service and great entertainment. Try the chorizo sausage, pulpo a la Gallega and jambon tostado. Both the desert specials were also delicious. Waiter even had my 2 teens laughing.

We found this place by chance as nearby Peninsular was full. Good value for money in this traditional bodega with quick service. On the lower side they don't accept credit card.

Good place if you want to eat traditional Spanish food. It is good value for money. However main course came before starter, which was strange.

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

I think is no way to put the bicycle near the restaurant. I dont know it has changed the situation since. But the street is strait.
