As long-term residents of BCN, we were happy to try this traditional restaurant after so long. We chose a la carte, and found the coca with pulpo and chorizo (a "mar y muntanya" dish) dainty but delicious, and the fideua with trompetas black mushrooms and...sepia excellent and ample. They have carafes of cheap but decent local wine (Terra Alta region). Service correct. We will return for their lunch special!More

I recommend to eat in this place at least one time. The fideua with “trompetas de la muerte” is very good. Good service. Can I repeat? Yes!

This long-established Barceloneta restaurant is located in one of the narrow warren of streets between the Marina and beaches. The decor is rustic and, given the location, it's unsurprising that "Can Ros" specialises in seafood and "arroz" (rice dishes) and we were looking forward to...selecting from a range of high quality fish and shellfish when we arrived for dinner, having already walked past a number of more touristy restaurants en route which offered a wide variety of fish/shellfish. Unfortunately, the variety in this restaurant was disappointingly limited and we settled on a shared starter of "fritura", which was simply boquerones and small prawns served in a cone of greaseproof paper. The shared main course of "arroz con bogavante" was a considerable improvement; a reasonably large fresh lobster served in a iron pan full of flavoured rice. The standard slipped again with distinctly average desserts of tiramisu and a chocolate "bomb". There was a small, but well chosen, wine list from we chose a reasonably priced Albarino. The service was efficient and friendly and the final bill for 2 people (inc. mineral water, 2 finos and coffees) was around 110 Euros, which we did not feel was particularly good value given that 2 of the courses were shared and the starter and desserts were mediocre.More

Very nice atmosphere, cozy and friendly. Great service. The food was amazing even though the prices were medium range. If you go you have to try the octopus with black sausage on dried apricots toast. One of the best dishes I ever had! Not crowded...and not touristy even though it's really close to Barceloneta beach.More

The food was amazing, good, traditional catalan food - the restaurant runs in the family for decades. Enjoyed there a great night with my friends, the prices were reasonable and the service great. Totally recommend

Absolutely delicious food, friendly staff and good value. It seemed quiet when we arrived at 8.30pm, but livened up quickly. The waitress was very personable. Would certainly recommend

Ordered fish casserole and to me it was more of a soup.... Casserole to me usually stands on it own and is hearty and filling with no need for bread.

Came here based on a TimeOut magazine recommendation and initial thoughts were very positive. Sangria tastes very strongly of sambuca. If you like that, fine, but if not, ... ordered the prawn paella, but was not traditional as it was sold as. Came literally covered...in caramelised onions which we did not expect or care for. Another friend ordered rice pudding but tasted awfully sour. Was sent back and was given a free shot in return. However the experience did not live up to expectations considering how close we were to the sea front. All in all, okay food, but not what we thought it would be despite its numerous food awards. :(More

We enjoyed a paella with arroz negro squids and artichokes. The flavor was excellent and the fish melted into the mouth. Fair prices. Not recommended for families with little babies. For a half fillet of codfish for our 18 months years old son we payed...the entire rate of the dish that is to say 16 euros...Anyway a good experience.More

Had high hopes for this place after reading the reviews but unfortunately these were diminished on arrival with the lack lustre greeting from the guy behind the bar with dark hair and glasses. It’s that indifference you get from some places which really annoys me,...almost as though they really don’t care that you made an effort to choose their restaurant to spend your money in. The hopes were dashed even further when the paella arrived which to be honest was heavy on the rice and very skimpy on the seafood and sad skinny prawns on top. To add insult to injury the same guy who greeted us slighted my Brazilian companion (who to be honest has excellent English) when he asked for the ‘bill’ only to be stared at with blank indifference until the guy finally said “oh you mean ‘bill’ - what kind of language is that ‘beel’”. At this point I was speechless with shock. This place doesn’t deserve a trip to the beach side of Barcelona for, it lacks atmosphere and warmth. Stick to the lively, warm and authentic tapas bars of the Gothic quarter where actual Spanish go, we had such wonderful evenings there.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
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
