Great Paella but portion size could be more generous. Rioja very good. Service slow and poor attention to detail - had to remind several times for water. Paella order was wrong so we had to wait 30 mins for the correct order to come and no complimentary bread or anything else while we waited. Don't think this restaurant cared too... More

We had lunch at Bestial. The food is excellent, but you get small portions for a high price. Service was very friendly.

They were all taken or reserved but on asking we were kindly accommodated and had the sunniest table there. (Thank you) A bottle of Prosecco a starter to share and 2 paella lovely. Would... More

We had the set lunch on a lovely sunny day. The food was excellent - fresh salad, carefully cooked meat and fish, moist chocolate cake. Service was relaxed (so maybe a bit slow for people in a hurry). Although there are fish dishes, there isn't much for vegetarians here. Prices are about average for the seafront, but Bestial wins on... More

This is a great restaurant/bar on the seafront is offers a great range of cuisine to suit all tastes, the food was excellent and they had a wide range of local wine. I was part of a group booking so the restaurant catered for our large group with a preset menu.

Went there with my wife and had a very good experirnce. Ordered a bucket of mussels - well prepared, balanced citrus/seafood flavor. The service was just ok. A bit pricey I shall say.

We have received a warning from our hotel "they are very arrogant you will not be happy". We thought they were joking. But we invited this restaurant and no surprise it happened what hotel told us. End of the dinner I asked for tooth pick and waitress told me "no tooth pick sir because our owner does not like it"... More

Enjoyed a nice Sunday lunch Staff were very helpful and nice. Food was tasty and well presented. Highlight of this restaurant is its place on the beach surrounded with palm trees and beautiful singing birds on the background. One let down was at the end of the meal when I asked for a digestive and they didn't have any amaros... More

When you first sit down there, you become invible for the waiters. After 15 minutes trying to get attention, someone like a manager realised and came to attend. The food is not a big deal. The entrace was mussel (not fresh and very small) and avocado soup with curry and praws (Not good). The pasta was delicious. Is overpriced for... More

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
