Good food in a local and authentic atmosphere. We had fish, octopus and some tapas - really fresh and tasty! Drinks were also good. Have in mind that it's an open bar at the market, it's very crowded and you can't expect perfect cleanliness or comfort. Maybe it's a little bit overpriced for this type of "place to eat" but the food is good and typical, service is also o.k.

We only intended to stop here for a quick drink, but the seafood was so good we stayed for a lot longer. Friendly helpful staff and decently priced food in fantastic surroundings. A must do in Barcelona

We ended up eating here in La Boqueria as it was still open even if practically all other restaurants inside the market were already closed, including the famous Pinotxos and El Quim. The waiter was very friendly and was patient with our orders. We had the grilled meat platter, the chipirones and the gambas. The first two were excellent although I didn't find the gambas fresh enough. A very enjoyable meal.

Can’t rate this place highly enough. The food is fantastic and cooked in front of you. We ate here twice and is “memorable” so don’t miss it. We promise to return!
