Good choice on the Rambla del Raval

We shared a couple of tapas and were pleased with the quality. Wait staff were friendly but not always available, but, then, we were there at an off time. Lovely atmosphere on the Rambla del Raval with neighborhood families strolling through the square and parakeets in the palms trees.

We went there because of a tapas festival on a busy Friday evening - more than 100 places in Barcelona offer something special for 10 days. Their tapas was so far the best we tasted, although not extraordinary, and we also ordered tomato bread and a chickpea dish to share - very tasty. We wanted to have dessert as well,... More

Looking in at this restaurant on a dark November evening, the interior seemed very appealing. It is modern, trendy with a black decor. It lacks atmosphere when inside but the food was very good. We had swordfish and risotto - the risotto was particularly good. A carrot cake and chocolate ice cream dessert was delicious and certainly the highlight.

Stopped by for a beer today with a friend. The waitress explained to us (In Spanish) that we needed to sit at a different table if we were only ordering drinks, which was totally fine! I did ask her to please repeat her sentence more slowly since my Spanish is not the best, and I guess that was my mistake.... More

Stopped here on my last day in Barcelona with my wife for a quick drink and snack. I ordered the Mojito and the Patatas Barvas and Calamari Romana. the Mojito was very strong, just how I like mine! And the Patatas were nice and reasonably spiced. The Calamari was well done but a little oily. Overall a pleasant experience.

Arrived here at 9 pm, very we'll served. The staff is nice but the tapas degustation is nothing special: we paid 38€ in 2, but there was really few food to feed us up. Too expansive...I suggest to go here in summer time so you can enjoy the big square outside as the inside isn't too fancy.

We went there on the night of 'El Clasico', so obviously football was a priority for most customers. All tables and chairs were facing the three (!!) big screens showing the game. We settled down with a beer and some tapas - and really enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was fantastic and the tapas were not the ordinary kind that you... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
