There are so many options on the water to dine and this location was best as it offered some great vegetarian options. The service staff is very professional and truly works as a team to make the dining experience a pleasurable one.

Good location at the Barcelona harbour. Very friendly and attentive staff. Good food and healthy servings. A party of eleven had dinner with drinks and dessert for a little less than 450 Euros. A good experience!

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
