    Pick the fish and shellfish you want from the display and tell the chef how you want him to cook it for you. That is how it works at La Paradeta, a self-service shellfish restaurant. Read more

    Great place! No need to know Spanish or Catalan, just point at what looks good, and the staff will cook it for you. The clams in tomato sauce and the tuna were both delicious.

    es lastima que no s pueda pagas en tarjeta. Its the best place to eat a really good seafood but you need to wait at the line for 45 minutes to get in. Its my favorite and its really cheap. go in group

    I love the concept of choosing your food which is then prepared on the go. Try their gambas and mejillones, so fresh and good. Now, be prepared for a huuuge line to get it, but it's totally worth it!

    The right choice for seafood dinner! Choose from glistening mounds of clams, mussels, squid, spider crabs and other fresh treats, decide how you'd like it cooked, pick a sauce, buy a drink and enjoy.

    Amazing seafood. When you have food that good, you don't need a fancy interior. Simply good - really loved it. But bring some time: we had to wait like 40min at 22.45h to get in. Definitely worth it.

    By far one of my favorite restaurants in Barcelona. Great concept where you select your favorite seafood items, based on the price/ kilo, you pay!

    When fishermen cook their own catch. Simple but best quality fish on your plate from the ice in minutes. Combining a fishmarket with IKEA feeling. magyaroknak: római parti büfésor a világ legjobb hal

    A super informal but great seafood canteen, queue up, choose your seafood, weigh it, pay and say how you would like it cooked. Choose a table, take a seat and wait for your number to be called.

    If you like seafood, this is the right place! The food is sooo delicious, you will probably eat too much of it! It is not very expensive either!! Obs: You have to be there early, and pay with cash!

    Quick, cheap, and delicious seafood. Great place to try some chipirones. They charge by weight, so you can get as much or as little as you want.

    Good seafood, but don't be fooled with thinking you don't have enough because they upsell you. You do have enough. It is just sales tactics. Crab has mostly dressed salad and not much meat.

    Fresh seafood cooked on the minute. Besides it's quite cheap compared to lots of other places. The restaurant isn't anything impressive but full of locals who know their stuff :)

    You pick the food and then wait for the chef to cook it and call your number on the speakers. The more food you have, the more fun you get. Unique experience Bingo style! :-)

    If you like some wine, I would recommend you to take a bottle of Albariño, which is a perfect match with the seafood.

    You can choose your sea food. The prices are good. You have to be pacient because sometimes you have to wait in line.

    Langoustines were delicious but expensive. Interesting experience. You line up, get inside and decide what you want from the window, then they find you a table.

    Be prepared to queue. Bring friends as it'll be cheaper per person and can take turns picking up dishes from the serving hatch.
