This restaurant is unique. They've been serving the same four dishes since they opened. Tomato salad, fried sausage, salted anchovies, and fried boquerones (anchovies). Seems a small menu but believe me that all of these four tapas are delicious.

Tapas and menus!

If you want to eat true Spanish food, go to a tapas restaurant. But don’t forget that a tapa is a small plate so order many. Also, for Spanish people is typical to eat the daily menus at restaurants. Check them out.

If you are in Barcelona during summer and want to escape the crowded beach of Barceloneta but still want to stay close to the city, take the Rodalies train line R1 at Plaça de Catalunya or Arc de Triomf (towards Mataró / Maçanet-Massanes) and stop at Ocata or Montgat Nord. These beautiful beaches are less packed, and you will be surrounded by locals.
