We had a great time with good food. The portions were very big and tasty and not expensive at all. A family restaurant.

Visited as a group of 15 and had so much food! Portions are huge and all the dishes were great. €30 each and included a few glasses of wine-would definitely visit again.

Having seen the generally positive reviews for this restaurant, we booked a table for dinner here a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, the smell from the lobster tank was so overpowering I couldn't bear to stay long enough to consider eating there! It was easy...More

Great wholesome food. If you're on a diet or a vegan, you might want to stay away. But if you like traditional food in deliciously generous portions, that's the place for you. Plenty of fish and seafood, though if you don't want that, go for...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
