Most marisco (seafood) meals can set you back a ton in Barcelona. Not so at this busy restaurant, which is more like a fish market than the trendy eateries of La Ribera's El Born district. The seafood -- crabs, prawns, squid, and so on -- is displayed in large plastic tubs. Pick out what you want at the counter and it's weighed up and cooked and you pick it up crisp and steaming on a platter. The same scenario goes for the drinks, which include some excellent Albariño whites and other good, reliable local wines. It's loads of fun, but order everything at once, as you'll have to wait in line, especially at the weekend.
