Good.

I have just had a good lunch here. The restaurant is in a lovely square in the Borne. It has outside seating and heaters for those chillier days. We had the menu del dia which was good value at Eu 11.95. There was a choice of 5 starters, 5 main courses and 5 desserts plus wine, beer or a soft... read more

Wondering around with some friends we found this bar/restaurant with a great location. What we didn't know was how terrible the food was and how expensive too. I ordered one of the most expensive yet disgusting burritos I have ever eaten. It was just minced meat with cheap tomato sauce in a wrap.

My wife and I stumbled on this little jewel while looking for another place in the area. The waitress was very nice and took good care of us. I ordered the Tortellini and my wife ordered the Risotto. Both were excellent. We had olives and bread as well. The price was amazing as well. I would highly recommend this place... More

Love the service and the down home way of making you feel like you're one of their family. Recommend the nachos with cheese and guacamole with a cerveza.

Do not order anything to eat here. Small portions, and bland tasteless food. The only redeeming thing about this place is that the service is friendly. That doesn't mean that it is efficient. Had to ask for s a beer 4 times. There are better places nearby. I'm guessing the only people who end up here are because they are... More

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.
