After a whole day of walking in the city we found this little pearl near the harbour. Great atmosphere and good drinks - go there! We went back a second time and will be back next stop in Barcelona :) Then we will also try the food.

We had noticed this place walking back to our hotel. We decided to give it a try for dinner and were not disappointed. They did not have frozen margaritas on the wall menus but our Irish Miss server said no problem she could take care of it- and she did. The margaritas were terrific, the nachos were great, the tacos... More

Just awesome. Food is very nice. Beer is a little bit expensive but anyway awesome place. I don't know what else to say. Nachos are nice cost you 5€ or 8€ for big portion. Burrito for 6€. Cocktails vary from 6-7€. Beer 2,5€ small or 5€ big. Only one toilet, not the best but alright.

The burritos, tacos, salads, and smoothies are by far the best in Barcelona, and contend to be some of the best food in all of Barcelona. It looks out into the port of Barceloneta, which is a highly popular spot in Barcelona. If you're looking for 2 for 5 euro tacos and 6 euro burritos that are healthy, tasty, and... More

After a long day, needing a snack we came across the bar,noticed the menu boards and popped in. It's a cracking little bar, no frills, just lovely tasty food,great value for money, good background music, and friendly and efficient staff. We stayed for about 90 minutes just soaking up the atmosphere in its busy location, would definitely recommend a visit.

Located in the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sun all day and the view. It offers fresh juices and smoothies, excellent burritos, awesome tacos, nachos and fresh sald. Everything is made fresh daily. The cocktails are priced at only 5-8 euros and are amazing, especially the fresh fruit daquiris and mojitos. Very efficient service ambience and quality.
