Description: Makamaka Beach Burger Cafe was born in Barceloneta in 2012, but the friendship among its creators goes further back. First of all there was Andrea, a familiar face in the international cocktail scene. Then there was Steef, a seasoned architect and conceptual madman. The two started off as housemates in Amsterdam where they became fast friends. When Andrea got the chance to open his own place in Barcelona, he didn't forget his promise to involve his friend. The duo teamed up with a crew of Dutch guys that share the same passion for good food, great people, and girls on rollerskates. And so a beach burger cafe was born! The love child of it all was dubbed 'Makamaka', a name given to Andrea from Steef. In Hawaiian it means 'intimate friend', which is really how it all started. To this day, Makamaka serves as a 70's-inspired watering hole for locals and travelers to share burgers, cocktails, and plenty of besos.

After waiting to be seated for 15min, I understand what all the fuss is about. Staff is AMAZING. Super friendly, charming, and really huggable as said in the menu. Drinks, well go for cocktails, wont miss a target, and burgers are out of this world. Definitely on of the highlights of my Barcelona trip!

Great location, great burgers, but the best thing about Makamaka is hands down the garlic and parmesan fries, had nothing like them since!

One of the best places for hamburgers in Barcelona. And probably the best fries in the city...A great sunny spot right by the beach!

I am so glad I walked from the beach and did not stay at Seabar, which is great for people watching, but not as good as Makamaka for food and cocktails. The cocktail menu is great, as are the burgers. Great atmosphere too
