La Estrella absolutely exceeded my expectations. At first I had mixed feelings due to the 100+th position in tripadvisor (typically I try to stick with restaurants in the 50s) and the un-sexy position (hidden next to Franca station). I booked anyway because it seemed to...More

It took them a few minutes to take care of us, but once they got to it, they were outstanding. Probably the best meal i've had since I'm back in Spain (over a year now). The dishes were original, respectful with the ingredients, surprising in...More

When we were at Estrella, we immediately were reminded of French food (not surprisingly, as the chef is French which we found out later). So we wouldn't say it's Spanish food, but it's good anyway. The restaurant also seems to be part of a restaurant...More

Lovely food. Good menu and whilst pricey it was worth it. Steak very good and good setting too. As there are so many restaurants around I probably would not go back but only as I don't go to the city that often.

Secret place to check out just away of the touristplaces. Great and honnest cuisine. Get inspired by the specials the maitre is offering.

Traditional catalan kitchen in a small side street just off Born. Best navajas I have ever eaten and all fish dishes were excellent. Do listen to the waiter for specials of the day. Good value for money but the interior is quite hideous.

Very, very good food and very friendly, helpful service in an environment that is nicely designed and attractive while remaining low-key. Highly recommend it.

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
