We were hungry around the old city in Barcelona....well, we found this place and figured it would pass a lunch meal. I think we missed...by far. Poor quality food, not too nice and EXPENSIVE. Not a choice ever again.

We had the lunch deal which included starter , main, glass of wine and coffee all for €11.90 - really good deal. We had tuna salad for started and it was so fresh and a good sized portion. For the main I had the tacos which were nice enough. Sitting outside in the sun - fab !

The food is average and the prices are decent. The staff is pleasant and friendly. The area is great, next to an open space and playground. Didn't visit the restrooms to make note. Would recommend for decent priced relaxing stop.

The problem with Barcelona is it can be hard to know in advance whether you'll get good value for money. Sometimes it's just worth it paying 2-3 euros extra for much more food and of better quality. One of the main reason my group chose Upiaywasi for dinner was that the prices seemed cheaper than other places we had walked... More

Horrible food. The paella was premade from Mercadona (premade at a supermarket) and the pizza was horrible also. They have a nice outdoor seating area. Would be a nice place to have a beer outside, but if any eating is involved the experience absolutely horrible.

We are staying in an apartment in this square so went there first as it was so close but have since been back as we enjoyed it. It has peruvian influences so the menu is slightly varied from the norm

Had a couple of non-alcoholic cocktails there which were really nice. We were unfortunate, however, to order nachos which had some kind of cheesy sauce on them rather than melted cheese. Also the chili was aweful. But the drinks made up for it

Called in for drinks, service was good, staff friendly and prices reasonable. Good atmosphere in the square with some locals playing guitars - just added a nice touch. As with all such places in the area space is limited, buts that's part of the charm. Didn't eat but menu looked OK.

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.
