    The paella was not good, the rice was undercooked and the fish was over cooked. Our waiter spoke very fast and basically ordered for us. He brought over two different things without asking us for an appetizer that appeared to be free but then charged us $25 on the bill. I wouldn’t not recommend and would not go back

    Big portions, very friendly and welcoming staff. Good food and a great atmosphere. Guitar player was circulating all evening.

    Expensive. The waiters didn’t really wait for us to take our time with the menu. They started suggesting things and telling us what we would like. It was frustrating to not be listened to. The food was good but honestly I wouldn’t go back and I suggest you take your time with the menu and don’t let the waiters push you around.

    The fresh fish was of the highest quality, sure...but even for that, FAR TOO EXPENSIVE. With a bit of wine for two and what was essentially an appetizer (a bit of shellfish) - a bill for 240 Euros. (one bottle of the most reasonable white) Our starter was a bit of Octopus - followed by our meal directly afterward - even though the waiter had asked us if we would like to wait, and we had said yes - we would like time. The food was taken away - despite us attempting to keep it anyway, as we knew it would be held warm instead of fresh. an hour later - we had to ask several times to have it returned...and yes - it had been held under lights.... Perhaps it was a mistake to order the market fresh fish - I do not know...but for this price, I would expect a meal and an atmosphere at a much higher level of quality. Everything was OK...but not OK for this price..... Perhaps this is normal for such a tourist town - but even a fine seafood meal in Venice doesn't cost this much.

    Best place ever for Paella. Everything here is so delicious and the staff is very attentive. I can highly recommend this place, a must to go if you are in Barcelona!

    The food items are good - (paella [good, but surpassed by Pez Vela's], bread with garlic aioli [which we didn't ask for and were charged for - I will return for just this because it was THAT good], [shots of rum with accompanying pieces of their signature yellow crumb cake which we didn't ask for but were NOT charged for, which made up for the bread, hahah) were all incredible. The corner window table made the dining experience even better. What kind of killed the mood was the photographer (who innocently requested to take our photo for their website, but then tried to sell us the misshaped physical photo - which we bought out of guilt) and the live music (lovely, but then the guy pulled an NYC styled subway panhandling move). We're VERY generous tippers - and usually just do it whenever we can, especially if it's deserved, but I'd advise to have your staff be a bit more subtle when asking for tip. No need to put customers in an awkward situation when they're just trying to enjoy a romantic meal. =/

    Take your time eventhough the waiter seems to rush you a bit. The fresh fish not only tastes great, but looks amazing as well (you can choose from the menu or from the real fish on ice in the back of the restaurant). Fair prices for such great fish and seafood.

    Great paella, atmosphere is a bit touristy, don’t get fooled into ordering the lobster paella priced at around €100.

About the restaurant

El restaurante La Barca del Salamanca, con envidiables vistas al Puerto Olímpico de Barcelona, es un restaurante de comida española y mediterránea con una doble vocación: marinera por su emplazamiento y de tierra adentro por su origen. Cumple con ambas con nota muy alta.

Súbete a La Barca del Salamanca y disfruta de ese ambiente del puerto, con los veleros y embarcaciones de recreo mientras disfrutas con un buen plato de Jamón de bellota de Guijuelo y una copa de vino. Luego entrégate de lleno a esa cocina marinera que asombró y encandiló a todos en su casa matriz de la Barceloneta. Todo el marisco es fresquísimo, por lo que puedes darte un capricho con unas Cigalitas Encebolladas y una buena selección de marisco hervido.

No pierdas esta oportunidad, es como disfrutar de lo mejor de dos mundos y hacerlo en un entorno tan exclusivo como el Puerto Olímpico de Barcelona. Si quieres agasajar a alguien La Barca del Salamanca es el sitio indicado y si tu pretensión es homenajearte a ti mismo y a tus amigos no podíais haber caído en sitio mejor.
