    Jai-Ca is always buzzing. The pescadito frito is a house favorite, as is the salpicón con gambitas. The terrace outside is equally full of life and is a great place to enjoy lunch in the summer months

    It's a cosy place where locals hangout, hidden away from the touristy promenade. Very tasty local barceloneta tapas and the best sangria ever ever ever. Get the table outside, it's worth the wait.

    Great place. Locals are sitting next to us which is a good sign. Get a table outside (you can sit inside and wait until someone outside leaves then ask waiter move your dishes). Seafood's delicious

    Amazing tapas, great atmosphere, authentic and non-touristy. Authentic lively Barcelona with delicious food and great atmosphere. If you come to Barcelona you MUST come here.

    Probably my favorite place in the universe. Food is perfect, it is a very local tapas place in Barcelona. Everything there is super delicious and really value for money. Especially chipirones!!!

    Great local spot for fresh tapas although it's becoming a bit more touristy recently. You can't make a reservation so expect to queue for 20-30 minutes. It's worth the wait.

    Typical tapas bar, cheap ans really good. If you want to know what spanish tapas looks like, that s the place in Barceloneta. Bartenders are really nice.

    Tasty food, great drinks, authentic atmosphere! No matter where we were trying to have dinner, we've ended up there every night, at least for drinks and music 😃

    Great for tapas! Their ensaladilla rusa is the best. But you should also try the gamba's planxa and the chiperones. Very friendly service!

    Very popular tapas bar; probably the best in Barceloneta. You'll almost certainly have to wait to be seated (leave your name at the bar) but the wait is absolutely worth it!

    Authentic Tapas bar, very good prices and generous portins. Frequented by locals and tourists alike (a good sign). Ask for the specialty drink. Seafood Tapas especially good.

    Good place for lunch. Good food for a good price. We liked “bomba” and Andulusian Style Calamari. Cava is always the best suits with those:)

    Generally great food and generous servings, a pint of beer and tapas is exactly what you need after the day spent on the beach. Sit outside and enjoy!

    Good food (gambas, mussels, octopus à la Galicia, ...). The location is authentic bistro style. Service is a bit slow.

    Amazing place, packed by locals and very chaotic, prepare to fight for your seats. Ask for vermouth, patata con carne, crab claws and, well, pretty much everything else.

    The best tapas in Barceloneta. Try the seafood: the navajas, chipirones and the buñuelos de baccala are amazing! Great staff, too.

    OMG the vermouth. Get the vermouth. And enjoy it while sitting among lots of lively locals (and tourists - if you're there in summer).

    Authentic and rustic tapas and fish, casual but professional service. Don't expect anything fancy. It's a traditional tapas experience. Locals go there.

    This is a small, low-key joint with a good selection of thoroughly unhealthy, thoroughly delicious Spanish tapas.

    The papas bravas are great. Also the potatoes with egg is good. Had tomato bread was OK and fish was OK too. Very noisy place and no good for families or kids.
