Trying to get to eat at La Cova Fumada is difficult enough. Not because it's some 3 star Michelin place, but because it's hardly ever open. When it is though you eat cosied up to locals taking early evening tapas and beers. If you like your places fancy this isn't for you. If you like your wine poured from a plastic bottle (filled from a barrel) by a family member in a slightly grubby apron, your food fresh and your atmospheres electric then it is. At it's best on Saturday mornings. Try the 'bombas', balls of bread-crumbed mashed potatoes filled with mince meat and a spicy sauce or the always excellent mackerel. Don't try and pay with card, this is cash only.

This little gem of a restaurant has long been gathering place for the fishermen and the members of a closely knit community, the heart and soul of barceloneta. La Cova Fumada is the sanctuary of La Bomba, a delicious tapa made out of potatoes and meat, which the owners claim was invented by an ancestor.
As with many great restaurants, La Cova doesn't have a sign, and opens in strange hours.
Watching it operate is as fun as the food is delicious. If you qander who is the lady in the portrait amongst pictures of Cruyff and Messi, it is the inventor of the Bomba herself.
