I found that everything we ordered from the menu was absolutely delicious. Beautifully presented and full of flavour, we really enjoyed ourselves here. I thought it was quite querky with friendly staff and great atmosphere. Definitely a place you could sit all afternoon! Love to visit again!

At a corner in the lovely alleys in Barceloneta you'll find one of Barcelonas best hidden secrets, Somorrostro. Food based on great commodities, good craftsmanship, and lovely presentations. Try the duck Margret and the chockladissimo and you'll be in heaven.

I had a reservation but we arrived 30 min before the time. The hostess said that we are too early but at the end we were given a table. We started with the soft crab which was very good, a rate of 8/10, the mix-grilled seafood which was very dry, no lemon on the side to squeeze on it. We... More

We found this in a guide book but also checked out the TripAdvisor reviews and the restaurant's own website. The fact that it was round the corner from our hotel was also a bonus. What a great little place, probably worth booking if you can or go around 7pm for dinner before the locals. Tapas selection was great and like... More

Not bad food, but little portions, some of the dishes were too gourmet for our company, the prices were too high, comparing to other restaurants in Barcelona

We ended there while doing a "tapas hopping" in Barceloneta and we sat at the counter, just watching the cooks who are so funny, friendly and talented! We took the fish of the day and we were absolutely blown by the taste of the fish and its splendid sauce! So tasty! Really nice atmosphere and I could stay the whole... More

We went here on the back of a TripAdvisor review and we weren't disappointed. The food comes out fresh and deliciously cooked you can sit and see it being cooked by the chefs. Susie the waitress is really helpful and explains what are good options for your group.

Hate to say something negative as we had high hopes based on Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews. We had the cod cannelloni and soft shell crab. I'm not sure if this is a food safety issue or simply a matter of bad cooking, but I vomited immediately upon entering the hotel. Thankfully the hotel was close. My wife didn't finish... More

came across the resturant by pure chance, opted out to sit on the bar as there were no tables left, which turned out to be a great opportunity to learn about the enthusiasm of everyone in the kitchen, get some tips and have a first hand experience! we ate almost everything there was to try and the four of us...

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.
