With tables at the edge of the beach and views out into the Mediterranean, this popular, family-run seafood and rice specialist dating from the late 1960s ranks high on any short list of Barceloneta dining spots. The outdoor terrace covered by sail-like white canvas umbrellas functions from May to October, or whenever weather permits. The wild dorada (gilthead bream) and lubina (sea bass) fish selections are fresh and flavorful, while the suquets (stewed fish dishes) are also excellent. Meanwhile the caldoso de bogavante (lobster bouillabaisse) is the signature dish, just ahead of the various rice dishes from paella to the excellent and briny noodle-based fideuà.

Insider Tip:

Try a lubina or a dorada roasted a la sal, that is, merely buried in salt and baked. The ritual of breaking the fish out of its hardened salt casing is always exciting, and the process enhances the flakiness, taste, and moistness of the fish.
