My favorite place in Barcelona

Boca Grande is the best typical Spanish taverna in town. The upstairs bar is nice, food is great and the wine list quite extensive. A must when in Barcelona.

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend... And it was disappointing. The food was poor, the service was pathetic and the price is not worth it. We had a problem with one of the meals and when we finally got the attention of staff over twenty minutes later, the waitress was rude, unhelpful and quite childish as we slammed... More

We booked a table for 10 pm and arrived at the restaurant on time but were placed at the bar although some tables were clearly available. The staff is either ignorant or simply does not care. After waiting 20 minutes we were seated. The waiter however was almost rude and we never had the feeling of being welcomed. The place... More

My visit was only to the bar on the second floor (and a peek of the most amazing toilets/events' space in the lower floor!). Enveloped in chic, service, delicious cocktails, simply great. Just off Passeig de Gracia. We didn't visit the restaurant, but are told it is fantastic.

The food is excellent. The lounge club upstairs is very nice too. I certainly recommend this place. Try the king prawns.

This was our favorite restaurant in Barcelona by far. The server and assistant were fantastic. We loved the octopus with cream and meat and also had the potato tapa with ground meat - both were insanely delicious. Nice wine list. We enjoyed the dessert presentation which was really cute - a white chocolate cheeseburger!!! We ordered the Catalan cream which... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Boca Grande. We took the advice on here and ordered the scallops. We weren't disappointed. The staff spoke pretty good English and were pretty friendly although it felt a little as if we were being rushed. The restaurant itself was beautiful too. I would certainly recommend it.

This is a wonderful, character-filled restaurant with great energy, food and drinks. I felt like I was in a NYC trendy restaurant full of beautiful people and interesting decor. The food was spectacular - the waiter was very good at making suggestions - and the atmosphere was first-rate. We snuck upstairs after dinner to the club to check it out... More

We had a fabulous time at Boca Grande! It was recommended to us by some friends who had eaten there a few months before. The vibe is excellent and the decor is unreal! We had the paella that was delicious and the cocktails are great too! 10/10 and would definitely visit again!

Our hotel recommended this place as we wanted something special for my 40th Birthday. It didn't disappoint and the very generous G & T was a lovely start to a wonderful evening. Food excellent and the selection of desserts brought to the table to choose from was super. Also has the most amazing, quirky toilets i've ever seen!!

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
