Service and quality are both present here. The design and comfort of the place is really nice. Our only surprise was the price which was a little on the steep side.

Nice terrace - very quite surrounded by old small houses. The food was very delicious. We had sea bass in salt crust and gambas. However, it's a bit overpriced. 40€ for seabass per person and 36€ for gambas.

This was my first experience of Els Pescadors, when you arrive to the restaurant it's placed in a beautiful square which feels more like a small town in Andalucía than Barcelona. Now with the food, we had a selection of starters, cecina with cheese really...More

The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's
skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that
this area of town is the newly crowned technological
park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley
containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well
as a host of local and international high tech
companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents
and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of

Originally a meeting place for fishermen, the tavern transformed into an eatery when Poble Nou became an industrial hub and hungry workers filled the neighbourhood. In the 70s it became a place of refuge for young people from the area who were anxious for change. The old tavern, Els Pescadors, has withstood the test of time and the coming and going of trends. It has born silent witness to the deeds and events that have influenced the future of the city.
