El Racó del Mariner runs from 7 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon, serving seafood just unloaded from fishermen’s boats. The restaurant is situated in the Fisherman’s Wharf of Barcelona and it is necessary to show the port police guard your NIE before passing through the entrance at the end of Calle l’Escau. The paella is among the most popular dishes and the waiter can recommend you the freshest seafood of the day. The guests at the restaurant are made up of a colorful mix of fishermen, dockworkers, local families and young partiers coming in after a late night of clubbing. The decor is very simple and down to earth but you will not likely find fresher seafood anywhere in the city.
