You don't go to this restaurant for the view: there isn't one. Hidden away in a faceless side street, this is a wonderful place for marvellous food. Great service and a maitre d' who knows exactly which wine on his short, modestly priced, list will...More

Nice surprise to discover this restaurant, thanks to a local friend. 4th generation management, makes you feel like at home. Worth the trip!

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
