One of those typical place you have a drink and tapas standing up with friends. Noisy, crowded, good mussel finger food and drinks. Just by the cathedral in case you are lost.

I'm not someone who enjoys seafood but this place made me love it. Easily one of the best "bravas" I've had and the squid rings were delicious!

We visited La Mejillonera one night attracted by the idea of eating some squid, octopus and mussels, the only kind of food that they serve. However we were not very happy with the experience overall - they serve the plates with abundant hot sauce, which...More

Great idea, lousy execution-all the guide books tout this place but not sure why. It is a bit unique as it mainly does mussels, as its name implies. Most Marisco places serve a wide range of seafood. The sauces were unremarkable, the fries soggy, but...More

Stopped in for a cup of Ribera (good Roble), and ordered a racion of steamed mussels. Mussels were very good (though I left the one that was a weird tan instead of orange) for less than 3 euro.

One of the best and most typical places where locals go for an appetizer before lunch. For me the best are the patatas bravas and the mejillones (mussels). Tasty and affordable.

I agree with a previous review, make this your first tapa bar of the evening and you won't be disappointed! They source their mussels from the nearby coast, easily some of the best mussels I've had anywhere and you can't beat the buzz of this...More
