Very cosy, great tapas and fresh seafood. Iberian ham is delicious, mussels are fresh and the sauce is very good. Very good service, the waiter was very kind to explain everything for us. Is lost between the narrow streets of the neighborhood, but nice surprise.

Our daughter was first disappointed with lack of squids but when our paella marisco came she got into shrimps and mussels and forgot about squids... the rice seemed to be in a tomatoes, surprising, not sure if ideal, but OK. The service was good.

What a gem in Barcelona! After feasting on "typical" tapas dishes that involved either bread or rice, I wanted to try something different and Somorrostro fits that requirement. This is modern tapas at its finest. Honestly, the presentation, quality, innovation, and flavors is on par...More

Disappointing meal. The tapas on the menu sounded quite original but despite the beautiful plating, the elements didn't really work with each other in terms of flavor. Portion size was also meager for the prices charged. Kitchen was also surprisingly slow. There were only 2...More

Surprisingly amazing! They have a menu that seems to be just "common" tapas but I can assure that were the best tapas I have ever had! Dont miss the fish with pistaccio! Make reservation before.

After a couple of years I decided to visit this place again. It has been refurbished, with more light entering now. What also changed is the type of food - they now only serve small dishes to share. Quality of the food and service were...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
