We stayed in the same building, so for us it was perfect when traveling with a toddler. After he felt asleep at night we could go downstairs and have something to eat, with the baby call connected to the apartment. It is just 30 seconds from the Apartment to the tapas bar. Had a late night snack here twice during... More

This place was right next door to where we were staying. Fantastic food could not fault it. But I have to say the lighting is really bright and if you are unfortunate not to get to sit on the couch, the remaining seats are little stools that you would not sit on for long. Yes a nice place to eat... More

This was the best tapas bar ever been to. Located in the heart of the center near metro station Jaume I this Tapas bar combines great selection of fresh tapas, modern ambience and on top for reasonable prices. We went there twice because the concept is both convient (self serving food) as well as cozy. Must-go for any Barcelona visit!

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this restaurant in the hunt for lunch when we were in Barcelona for a long weekend. We loved it so much, we ate there for lunch twice more - there was so much variety for all tastes and we had to stop ourselves from going overboard! I would recommend the cold tapas over the...

Kind staff, great and fresh tapas, tasty drinks. Don't sit close to the doors, if it isn't hot outside.

My family and I were visiting Barcelona for 4 short days. We chose to eat at El Rovell Del Born on our third night and we were not disappointed. The waiter gave us great advice and service and the tapas and sangria were just wonderful. The selection of tapas were really interesting - we tried many different tapas that we... More

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.
