The Crown Marine
A corner establishment of the type often seen in the Eixample district, this place doesn't appear on the usual lists but is very interesting. Classic décor with an imposing bar. Outdoor terrace. Family business, with the proprietors' personal touch. Excellent meats and fresh fish, same-day catch. Noteworthy ajoarriero (thick garlic and potato sauce). Their daily set menu is popular in the area. Prices commensurate with quality. Wine list with good labels. No glitz or glam: just tradition, savoir-faire and excellent raw products.
