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.

Probably the best breakfast I have had in the last couple of years. Sunday brunch is where it's at. We liked it so much we went back for dinner 7 hours later.

The food here was amazing. Everything from the Tapas, the main courses and the cheesecake was out of this world! Order your own slice you'll want two! Staff was friendly, great atmosphere. One of the best meals we have ever had!

Unfortunately we only got to stop here once for a drink, I wished we had more time so we could have returned. Its set in a great location and really is the best place to stop and watch the world go by. The service was friendly.

We ate here after a recommendation from a friend. We were looking for some good tapas in the old town that were not super expensive. This place definitely delivered on those fronts. We ordered 4 tapas between the two of us; a cheese plate, a guacamole dip, an avocado flat bread and some Spanish sausage (don't recall the exact names... More

This small restaurant is just a 10-minute walk from La Rambla. Watch out, since it's quite easy to ovelook it. The entrance is really tiny ! Inside you will find many tapas. I would even say vegan tapas like hummus or guacamole. Unfortunately, no octopus, cipirones or prawns. Instead, we tried excellent guacamole with chips, calamares (well, with mayonnaise sauce...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

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.
