We were passing this little bar and it was in our guide book and we had been turned away by a couple of other full bars we decided to go in. It was quite quiet and we didn't expect much. The menu was limited but we had steak sandwiches which were really good and my son had very spicy chicken... More

Drinks and atmosphere are nice but with desrespectful waiters. Too many tourist make their day I guess, so they don't seem to pay atention to good maners and education...not recommendable for locals at least! I won't return.

Not only did we had the worst hangover thursday, but the menu at Milk was named "Hangover Thursday" as well. We knew at that point that this was the perfect place to eat a late breakfast. So let me explain: First of all, this place serves a great smoothie that actually are one of the better ones I´ve tasted. Second,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the gothic quarter and decided to pop into this place due to all the great reviews. We didn't come here for brunch so don't know what that is like but we came for two drinks later in the afternoon and the place was quiet only a few couples but service was pretty non existent...

I am so sorry to hear that you experienced bad service. Unfortunately I cannot be there all the time but expect that the service will be the same whether I am present or not. It is important that I identify who was working the evening in question. I would really appreciate if you would contat me directly . Can you... More

If you're like me and need an actual breakfast before you hit the streets of a new city, then Milk is the place for you! Because it's off the beaten track, and perhaps because it was relatively early on a Monday morning, we were the third pair in the place. Attentive service, really great food and good surroundings made this... More

As an American, I come from a tradition of heavy, delicious, and homemade breakfasts. Coming to Spain, I knew that most of our breakfasts would consist of toast and coffee. This was why I was so happily surprised to come to milk, and have the first great breakfast of my trip. My group ordered yogurt with berries, eggs with hash... More

This is a must visit for anyone coming to Barcelona. An intimate, friendly bar serving superb cocktails, really tasty, fresh food and playing the best tracks to boot! Loved the ambiance. An absolutely quality find, so pleased we stumbled across it. If only we were staying a few more days...we'd look up it's sister restaurant "Marmalade" 10/10.

Hidden away in the side streets Milk Bar is a great place for all day brunch. We had the Eggs Benedict and the fry up. Fabulous food with big portions, great atmosphere and love the breakfasty cocktails. Highly recommend.
