Had lunch here. Everything was delicious. We had tapas and sangria. The place is small and nice and very traditional. I really enjoyed it. The tapas are wonderful. Obviously you need to try the bomba.

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
