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

games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line

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.
