We love mussels but were disappointed here. I had Belgian Style, but totally different with what I had in Belgium. Vegetables are not cooked enough and the soup didn't absorb mussel or vegetable, so it seemed that they cooked separately.

Finding a great muscle place is usually a gamble, don't want to get sick whilst on holiday. La Muscleria was a definite safe place to go with absolutely delicious muscles. The hardest part is to choose your marinade, as they have a wide range of...More

This restaurant offers a large selection of mussels prepared any possible way. Mussels arrive in a large pot so one portion is definitely enough. One of the choices we ordered (Diablo) was good, had large mussels well done, the other (Provancal) wasn't something that I...More

We had sangria, mussels, and chips. Mussels had no flavour, chips were meh and even the sangria was not good. We were very disappointed. So many great places to eat and we wasted a meal here...

The mussels were not very well seasoned (I got the garlic and olive) and lots of small pieces inside my pot. The fries were not seasoned at all. Servers were not very friendly.

High quality fresh food served with speed. Good selection of tapas & Salad starters including a limited selection of vegetarian (no fish) dishes. A huge array of preparations of mussels. A kids menu and alternative dishes.

We stopped here, on our first night in Spain, and had a wonderful dinner. Service was friendly, and unobtrusive. It was a Saturday night, and avertable was full. We were fortunate to get in just ahead of the rush. Reservations would be wise, if going...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
