This place is just a rip-off. Opposite to all other restaurants in the area (and against the European law) they do not include the tax in their prices (which because of the "trick" seem lower than those of other places) . When asked about it,...More

The fish wasn’t fresh at all & it smelled weird as if it’s not clean. Even the calamries, the fish soup & the fried small fish, everything tasted so bad that we couldn’t finish what we ordered. I won’t ever recommend this restaurant.

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
