We went to have dinner and the food was very good. It is one of the best places in El Borne to have dinner (tapas) and nice wine. Recommended.

The first restaurant on Passeig del Born across from the Born Cultural Centre, it has lots of outdoor seating and good food but doesn't deserve the "top choice" billing granted it in one of the Barcelona tour books. It is however a great place to people watch.

In a great neighborhood, simple bistro ambiance and good menu. These people are also very honest as I forgot my DSLR at the restaurant and they kept it for me!

I went here twice during my time in Barcelona - both instances were good. Tapas were pretty good (I thought the chorizo was incredible). The other time I had the carpaccio; again, a good meal. The interior decor is nice - I definitely enjoyed the ambiance. Service was okay - nothing wrong but nothing to suggest that it was the... More

It looks like a -"its-here-the-locals-eat"kind of place but don't be fooled. No barcelona resident will be spotted here. The restaurant is owned by a group of restaurants, so no owner who will make sure everything is perfect at HIS restaurant. As a consequence the staff is very rude and not talkative as they only rush to the kitchen and back.... More

We went here following the reviews and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food excellent. We were so pleased we returned on another evening to find the seats out on the square all taken, the staff seated us inside to wait but produced a large plate of olives to keep us going - much appreciated....

We loved our meal at Casa Delfin. Dinner was one of our best in Barcelona. Fantastic, authentic bravas. Excellent service. We loved our waiter who was attentive and steered us to great choices. Elegant interior. Will definitely return.

I went here based on all the rave reviews and wanted authentic paella. Could not have been a worse experience. I'll start by saying the service and attitude of the staff was absolutely the worst I have experienced. I was a waitress at a high end restaurant and even my most pretentious and rude customers have treated me better than... More
