This is acknowledged to be one of the best fish restaurants in Barcelona. The fact that it's located slightly out of the main drag, in the working-class beachside suburb of Poble Nou, should not stop you making the trip. The restaurant is divided into two ambientes: One is old-school -- with marble tabletops and wooden beams -- while the other is modern Mediterranean. But no one comes to gawk at the surroundings. The sole objective is to enjoy the freshest seafood in Barcelona, cooked in classical ways with surprising touches. Local gambas (prawns) are served with steaming garbanzos (chickpeas), or a baked (al horno) fish, such as lubina (sea bass) or dorada (bream) -- whatever has been trawled that day.
