We had the best meal that I have had for ages at this restaurant. The food was just delicious, the service excellent and the waiter spoke excellent English which was very helpful. I recommend booking ahead as we were lucky to get a table.

Someone recommended this to us and it was fantastic! Very low key, in a quiet neighborhood which happened to be walking distance from our apartment. Delicious, very nice service. Great steak. We went there twice in the week-

A cute restaurant. Unfortunately after reading all the good reviews, also a slight disappointment. Had ceviche for starters, which was fresh and tasty. For mains black rice with seafood, which was average as the whole dish tasted like the weird yellow sauce on top. Also one could not really tell what kind of seafood was in it...cocktails were great though,... More

Incredible food - the most delicious and atmospheric places I've ever visited. I literally recommend it to anyone that goes to Barcelona. Quaint, funky, intimate and totally delicious. Book in advance though - we were glad we did as there was a massive queue of people outside waiting to get in and it would have been difficult even to get... More

We were here on our last night in Barcelona. What a wonderful place it was! We both has starters, mains and pudding and it was all so tasty! The cocktails were all amazing! Great atmosphere with the friendliest waiters and bar staff. We had such a delightful final night in Barcelona, thank you so much! Would recommend to everyone!

The food was good. The menu is varied and you may hesitate between several dishes as they all sound amazing. We started off with the black mojito, which is the specialty of the house. Highly recommended to try. We also had the tempura prawns which were very good and fresh. For the main entree my husband had the sesame crusted... More

I brought my girlfriend there on the day of her birthday. Don't remember exactly what we ate but everything was delicious and surprising! Perfect service, clean place, smiling and patient staff! They organised everything to make sure my girlfriend had a special night, a small but incredibly tasty desert called "muerte por chocolate" brought with a candle on the top,... 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.
