We ordered some tapas and basically left them, drank our beer, listened to the roaming musicians and then went for gelato. The food wasn't good, but the ambiance lovely.

Couldn't recommend El Atril enough. On a foodie holiday- we were definitely sampling the range of Barcelona cuisine. On a quiet Monday, on the refreshingly breezy terrace we ordered the day's menu and were completely blown away. The burger- without a bun- was the best I have had, and the brochette too.

Well first of all I think it's worth mentioning that our table was forgotten about after being seated and that our attempts to get the servers attention when he was at the table next to us was put to waste. When we finally ordered the food was alright. The potato bravos' aioli reminded me of a bad nacho cheese mix... More

One of those lucky finds...great food, friendly service, and great prices. We had the hake and the roasted chicken. Both were delicious. ..a tad salty but also very flavorful.

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
