As a tourist standing in an enormous plaza ringed by restaurants all of which serve the same kind of food, it can be hard to know which one to pick.

Whilst out walking to wind down after a days meetings and the moment you see Obe you are somehow enticed in. It didn't disappoint. Great service and high quality Italian food done simply but well. Relaxed atmosphere and free wifi for the solo diner!

We were looking for a foodie place to eat but hadn't found anything we liked in an hour of wandering and stumbled across Obe. At this point I was hungry and my wife was getting impatient, the menu seemed average but it would do. We ordered the parmesan aubergines to start and this is where I fell in love. You... More

This place was a little tricky to find but worth the adventure. Their dinner hours don't start until later, so plan for a drink in the neighbourhood or venture out a little later in the evening for dinner. The staff are very friendly and happy, so you know it's a good place to be. The decor is simple with creative... More

I've been to Barcelona many times - this is a real gem. Genuinely beautiful food - we actually had ravioli twice it was so good. Great wine list - attentive staff - go to this place (and always avoid Restaurant portonovo at all costs)

We had seen this place so many times in our 5 days in Barçelona as we were staying just around the corner. We finally went on our last night. Though it was Italian it was a great last dinner in Spain. We were somewhat surprised they charged for bread, but not bothered. The exotic mushroom pasta was great. As was... More

Expect a good service within a lovely atmosphere and cool designed decoration of this restaurant. The food is amazingly good, real quality with a wide variety of Italian wines and liquors. We had two dishes of pasta, a salad and tiramusú. Portions aren't too big but they are delicious, I strongly recommend the tagliatelle with boletus and prawns. They also... More

It was worth noting the wine first, selection was excellent especially if you like Italian reds. The owner was knowledgeable about them as well. Food was very good and wait staff was excellent. They have a nice outdoor area for after dinner drinks and were happy to make the whole experience perfect.

This little restaurant is situated just behind Santa Caterina market and is a good stop after wandering around the market. We went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. They do have a terrace but we opted to sit inside.We had the menu del dia which was great value for money. Two of us had pasta with pesto and the other... 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.
