Excellent food in a beautiful setting.

I spent quite a bit of time walking around looking for one of those little gems, hidden down a side street, as most of the places to eat offer pretty much the same experience. I found El Callejon after consulting Trip Advisor and I'm glad I did. The food was fresh and to an excellent standard... read more

What a nice place to go to. The earlier recommendations were very good. Indeed very friendly waitresses and good looking. I had the garlic schrimps, avocado with salmon and the porc tenderloin. Completed with the rioga house wine. What do you want more. They feel like you are at home. Something to remember. Price quality is good.

One of the best places to grab a byte in the evening. Close to Born district so you are destined for a pleasant stroll after dinner. Try the skirt steak and the homemade cheese cake. Don't forget to order the Cava Sangria. It is Fabulous.

I'm sorry to say that the rating don't met our expectations. Instead of waiting 20 min for a table it took 45 min. Steaks was almost raw. Waitress forgot 50% of out tapas but they was on our bill. So, if you plan your evening, choose another restaurant in Barcelona

A couple of years back we booked this place for a group of friends celebrating birthdays. Wow we had really fabulous nights and the atmosphere, quality of food and service from the team at this brilliant restaurant was perfect. If visiting Barcelona this is a must visit for your bucket list. Don't miss

We got little of everything on their menu. Mojito is excellent - so are different tapas and also the steak and salmon. Cosy environment and attentive staff. Would definitely go there again.

Arrived late to where we were staying and went out in search of a late dinner. We passed by this restaurant and it looked cosy so we went in. Food was lovely. Had a nice bbq taste. We had 6 tapas to share, a bottle of wine and a coffee for about €70. Not bad value. Service good. While we... More

Reserved a table off the cuff for around 21:30 on a Friday night and went off for a cocktail. On our return the staff loudly indicated that our table wasn't ready but the diners at it would be done soon in front of said diners - left my friends and I feeling a little embarrassed, and if it was us...

I was made to feel very welcome as soon as I walked in and was immediately given a table. Great choice of tapas and lovely wine selection to match. As the evening progressed the restaurant was heaving but the staff coped very well and we were not ignored. Lovely atmosphere and décor. Off the beaten track but find it if... More
