if you're a seafood lover, as i am, then you need to get your posterior to this place with the quickness. i have never seen fresh oysters so large in my entire life. everything was super fresh and very delicious and the wait staff was pretty awesome.
we had shrimp, ysters, clams, chorizo, manchego, sardines, anchovies, calamari... the whole shabang-a-bang.
if you're in the hood it would be well worth your time to eat here. also, they have some of the most delicious desserts, in particular, the torta de santiago was the most delicious i've ever had.
We came to this restaurant by a recommendation.
It was my first night in Barcelona and I wanted to start my vacation with some great seafood.
Just to give you an idea of how much we loved the place, we came in at around 6:30pm and left around midnight. Yes, it is not a typo,we spend there five and a half to six hours, and we loved every minute of it.
This is what our dinner consisted of:
- grilled bread with some tomatoes and olive oil
- deep fried mix of seafood: fish, shrimp, langoustines, calamari
- whole orada fish, baked in salt
- special mariscos paella, with lobster, razor clams, clams, mussels.
- two pitchers of sangria
Everything we tried was more than amazing. Fresh seafood cooked to perfection.
Service was outstanding!
To top it up, our server Antonio got us some desert and two bottles of coffee liquor, Licor Hierbas Olave, on the house.
Unbelievable dining experience! We are coming back here again by the end of my vacation.
Very nice restaurant, famous for it's fish but also if you order meat. Incredible fast service, friendly but you should know what you want and have a strong mind if you don't the waiters will fool you and talk you into most expensive stuff. Had a local guy with me, so that's been avoided and food was as good. Will go there again with locals or with a list what to order and what not to.
