Celebrity seafood

Off-peak at Botafumeiro
They roll around dead fish and shell-fish on a stainless steel table
Seafood croquettes
Grilled squid
Octopus, Galician style
Profiteroles with hot chocolate sauce
Assorted petit fours on the house, served on a sheet of silver!
Fresh figs with crema de leche
LOCATION: Botafumeiro, Paceo de Gracea, 81, Barcelona
CATEGORY: Seafood, Spanish
DRINK: Bottle of white Rueda
WE THINK: If it's good enough for Bill Clinton, Morgan Freeman, Larry Bird, Woody Allen and the other mighty people immortalised on the Botafumeiro's "celebrity photo wall", it might be good enough for us. We went off-peak to this old-fashioned marisqueria and had nice, over-priced squid and octopus to the sound of R.E.M. and Lionel Richie arranged for string quartet (you'll get the gist if you go onto Botafumeiro's website).
