I'm a New Yorker who owns a flat on the block adjacent to this restaurant. It was my permanent address for 10 years but since returning to New York in 2008 I now spend 1 of every 3 months in Barcelona.

Excellent relation of quality and price. Small atmospheric family run restaurant which has always been busy on our several visits. Call then and book a place to avoid disappointment.

Highly recommended. The food is good quality and the prices are very reasonable. Especially nice sat outside with a cold beer while you watch the world go by.

My wife and I were walking around Barcelona on Christmas Eve and were not having much luck finding a place that was open for lunch. Luckily she saw a quick bit of movement in one of the windows. We took a closer look and noticed that El Raco was full of locals enjoying a meal. We grabbed one of the... More
