We ordered a "salpicon de mariscos" and half of it was surimi (cheap fish with an artificial brab flavor). We complained to the friendly waitress and she just smiled not even trying an explanation or an excuse. Such a thing happens these days in the...More

Once you go through the fruits, spices and candy sellers, straight line to the Bar Central, after the fish market. Very small, with couple of tables and a bar setting. Very greasy but very tasty, mostly sea food (at least this is what we ate)....More

Great service, the seafood&fish mix is amazing! Great crab, calamari, huge shrimps, and an amazing mix of all types of clams (and more.) The waitress were very kind, highly reccomending the seafood mix! Enough for two people and for only 17 euro :)

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
