the menu del dia is very good value (starter, main, sweet and a drink). Food is well cooked, tasty and the service is ok. Beware with ordering drinks though. You will get caned on the beer prices. Best to stick with the menu dal dia.

I know the feeling of getting to the end of the day and having your judgement clouded by hunger but don't stop here for a quick fix. We had to ask the waiter to come over and take our order. We happened to be the only people there and still our food took more than 30 minutes. The paella was... More

This has to be one of the worst 'restaurants' along this street. We made the awful mistake of sitting down to eat here. The pizza was cardboard covered with ketchup, the canneloni was filled with liquid mud passed off as meat and huge globs of ketchup at each end of the plate. The hamburger was dry, small and tasteless a... More

We've all been there...at the tourist trap. This time we knew it in advance as it takes no genius to figure it out from the exterior and sun-bleached pictures of available dishes. Still, we were starving and thought "At least we can get something here and move on". Well, I'm naïve... There's no point going into details as others have... More

No drinks prices offered with menu so asks for smallest size Coke for kids. They get pint at 5 Euro, plus the 7% tax which of course didn't appear on the food menu. Not impressed by the food and felt taken in. Wouldn't go back.

Spanish cooking as understood by Pakistanis. Cheap, does the job.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
