After a couple of hours walking along the expansive Barconoleta beach area and Port Olimpic area, it was time for a beer and some great food!
We were on our way back to the beach from the port, and recalled reading about Agua before our visit as a recommended place to stop. The terrace looked comfortable, with lots of shade and it was busy (always a good sign)!
I was wanting something a little more like a meal than the Tapas we have been trying, and was happy to see a lot of seafood options on the menu. But first, the beer. There’s nothing like a cold one on the beach!
Our meals took a while (we we warned 20 minutes), and it was really worth the wait. I ordered the baked hake with potatoes, tomato and onion. It was served with a large spoon to break apart the fish and gather up the other delicious accompaniments. The mix of herbs and oil, and everything baked together, came together as sweet with a little bit of heat. So delicious!
David chose a rice dish with cuttlefish, shrimp, sausage and artichokes. It was much more savoury and salty, also with a bit of heat. It felt like a paella, and was really satisfying.
Agua turned out to be the best beach stop we could hope for, and filled us up to continue our long walk along the beautiful Barcelona beach!
