Great food but watch for rip offs

We were recommended here by our hotel. Friendly and efficient service but we were rushed in to the a la carte menu and a "bottle of red" turned out to be one of the most expensive they had. A third starter turned up which we had not asked for and we sent it away. But the food was great and... read more

We tried the Menu Taberna, at €7.05 plus drinks (which brought it back to about the usual €10 per person); it was gutsy and filling and likely a great opportunity for using up yesterday's leftovers. The meal lacked flair, but the service was good and the wine very good. It was a set menu starting with a very good Russian... More

We had lunch, following a recommendation from a friend who frequent this place. The set menu 7EUR its an excellent value for money! We had salad, Black rise Rissotto and meatballs. The black rice delicious. This is a typical spanish restaurant, with friendly staff in a very relaxed atmosphere. I'm glad we listened to our friend!

We followed a shop owner's recommendation, but were disappointed with our lunch here. The patatas bravas were soggy and drenched in a gloppy sauce, and the main courses were very average. Worse, the waiter started us off by bringing us a tray of bread that we didn't ask for (and didn't eat), and we then found a 5 euro charge... More

I was much looking forward to trying this place after a recommendation from a discerning friend. Expectations were high but they took a quick plunge after a series of culinary blunders - inconsistent wines, mine was great but my partner's was badly corked, the worst patatas bravas I had in barcelona (still wondering about the mystery sauce) ordered as a...

This is an excellent choice when in Barcelona. Have visited this property on a few occasions and it has never once been a let down. Visually from the street it just looks like a small entrance, but once inside, very rustic and traditional. Staff are always friendly and polite, with a will to assist with your choices of food.

We visited twice during our stay in Barcelona and were given a very warm welcome both times. The food was very good - the meat eaters were delighted, as was I as a vegetarian. It felt properly Spanish after the tourist venues near Las Ramblas.

Immediately we entered the restaurant there was a very friendly welcome and our table was set beautifully ready for our booked table. I dont think we needed to book though. The service here is really excellent. The waiters are knowlegeable and helpful and quick. We never felt left too long or being rushed. The food was so good. Truly delicious.... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
