Average food but good area

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.

The restaurant is located in a cute square, with a bohemian and artistic atmosphere. We had 3 meals and a drink each for 12 Euro, and the quality of the food was great. There was a list if 14 meals to choose from , which is unusual for offers. The pasta was very well cooked, especially the sauce. The chicken... More

They messed up our simple order because of a system failure. But hey, no-one's perfect so we decided to wait. Then, after an hour and without apologies, arrived our tasteless patatas bravas. A bit later, two horrible burritos, starter portion, yet main-course price. Red wine was ok. Cava mediocre. Avoid this place...

You can find so much better place near by especially if you are going to eat something. Prices are high - two meals were very small and taste was nothing special. Maybe this is a place to have a drink or two because the are around is nice.

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.
