Makamaka, which means ‘very close friend’ in Hawaiian, opened its doors in Barceloneta in 2012. The popular burger restaurant sits on a happy stretch of Passeig de Joan de Borbó, right before reaching the beach.
Makamaka is a name given by Andrea, the original creator of the restaurant, to his friend Steef, who also joined the project. The pair had been housemates in Amsterdam. Popular items include the Maradona Burger (beef patty, buffalo mozzerella, eggplant, arugula, sun-dried tomato, chimichurri sauce) and the garlic and parmesan fries. Dreamy cocktails like The Big Lebowski (coffee-infused voldka, chocolate liqueur, cinnamon syrup and a dash of cream) make for an extra special sunset experience on the terrace.
