In Barcelona since 1996, the Restaurant Barceloneta has been a pillar of seafood. In front of the Moll dels Pescadors, fishing harbor, this place is perfect to relax. You will get away from the chaos of the ramblas and enjoy the view over the Mediterranean.
The restaurant almost feels like a family one, in which the heritage passes from generations to generations. It’s a welcoming destination with big glass windows, comfortable wooden chairs, and pops of color.
The main dishes have been the same since the opening, so perhaps there is a generational trend. The Restaurant Barceloneta is the place to try local seafood. Since this place is right on the harbor, it’s also right by the fish markets. That’s where the chefs get their ingredients. They are fresh and cooked in traditional Spanish style.
The menu is long and rich, but you can start with the escalivada. It’s a dish from Catalonia of roasted vegetables. You can move onto the Octopus in Galician Style, served with boiled potatoes, olive oil, and sweet Spanish paprika. Liking the Galician style? The restaurant features local oysters too. And, finally, the seafood paella.
If you prefer meat, don’t worry. You can order a steak or the “butifarra,” a sausage from Catalonia. If you still have room for dessert, you can try the Catalan custard, a burnt cream flavored with orange, lemon, and cinnamon.
The location of Restaurant Barceloneta
You will be in the fishing harbor and in the Barcelona of trade and fishermen. The Moll dels Pescadors is the harbor of tiny boats, a clock tower and lighthouse, and this seafood restaurant. It’s the Barcelona that smells of sea, the city away from the glamour.
This restaurant is the perfect place to try local seafood and it’s a destination for everyone. Even for kids, who can enjoy the meat courses. And everyone will enjoy watching the boats go by, quietly leaving the harbor and the city.
