We walked up from the city to find a gluten free friendly restaurant along the beach to eat a relaxing lunch. Service was great, the location is good. Food was good, the Paella was a bit oily. The guacamole was great.

After not visiting this restaurant in a while, I had a Sunday lunch there with my family last weekend and it is still my favorite place for a delicious green salad and a traditional Spanish rice dish. The waitress was very friendly and the food...More

Contrary to some of the other reviews, my family and I had a really good lunch here. Guess it all comes down to expectation as I do agree that the prices are certainly higher than other restaurants we have eaten at and service was a...More

The only best thing there is to say, is the location on the beach.. the food is not good enough, the price is to high. Use you money on one the other places on the beach

But sadly the food cannot he complimented in the same way. Paella was dry and overlooked, my burger was not too bad but was horrendously overpriced as was pretty much most of the menu. I could hear complaints from people at tables around me so...More

Being at the beach you know you'll pay extra for the food, but compared to normal Spanish prices and the rude service.. I'd choose another place. Food what was served was decent.

The food & drink was perfectly acceptable, the tacos were tasty but very expensive, but to be expected given the location. Our bill came to 27 euros for one tapa dish, 2 wines & 2 small beers. I remember checking the bill, but when we...More

Wonderful little spot on the beach. We had two tapas (Pan Tomate & Patatas Bravas) and a few beers. Reasonably priced considering we're tourists right on the beach. The staff were really friendly and provided english menus upon request.

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

Sal Café has an enviable position on Barcelona beach, facing the Mediterranean Sea. Its cooking intertwines Mediterranean tradition with cuisine from other whereabouts, such as Japan, Indonesia or Brazil. The restaurant is decorated with retro touches and a nod towards the 1970s, which gives it a welcoming feel day and night. Sal Café’s size allows it to cater large events, for more than 250 people. It is open all year round and can organise breakfasts, lunches, dinners and any other events for both corporate and private celebrations.
