Usually I'm pretty much on par with the experiences I see on TripAdvisor, but this place sounded sooooo amazing that I think my standards were set too high. It's a good place to eat if you're in the area and not badly priced, but it certainly wasn't my favorite dinner in Barcelona. We got a cheese sampler, which was just... More

I think it is one of the best places in Barcelona. Food is delicious. It has quite friendly place and staff. It also has perfect price/performance rating. If you visit this place, you will not regret. In my next visit to Barcelona, I will come back to this place for sure.

El Callejón is nestled between Carrer Ample and Carrer d'En Gignàs in the southern end of the Barri Gotic, with an entrance on each. It's a cosy little place containing only a few tables and a screen that was showing football (albeit on mute with some relaxing music to preserve the chilled ambience). The walls feature an assortment of artistic... More

The food here is awsome, the champiñoes were the best Ive ever had, no doubt about it. Unpretencious place, with great service and ambient. My girlfriend and I loved to spent Valentines dinner there. Good restaurant in the best neighbourhood in town! I strongly recommend this place.

We booked a table for valentines day and had the most fantastic meal, drinks and service so far in Barcelona. The foie gras and goats cheese with apple is stunning as is the Iberian ham. We had ribeye steak and entrecôte (Argentinian cut) for main, both were cooked perfectly to our differing tastes and were the most delicious steaks we've... More

I have recently come back from Barcelona, and decided i had to write a review on this fantastic restaurant. We first visited on a Friday night it wasn't busy but we enjoyed a lovely Tapas meal for two, with the highlight being the King garlic prawns. This place was so nice we decided to visit again on the Sunday night,... More

I found "El Callejón" strolling around, not knowing it's ranking on tripadvisor. Definitely a place to visit, service is very friendly. They ran out of their delicious champiñones and offered me something else. To my surprise the substitute Tapas did not appear on the bill. They apologized for not being able to serve more of the desired tapas and therefor... More

Very friendly service and delicious steaks! Menu is in many languages but the place is not touristy. Atmosphere is very relaxed. Look down the alley to find it!

Actually not to hard to find. Just turn on to Carrer Ample and keep looking left and right into every street and dead end, you'll find this place. From La Rambla, the Ample isn't named Carrer Ample so you might miss it. Its easier to find from Via Laietana and head southwest. Stopped in on a Saturday about 9pm in... More

Nice place. Found it using Tripadvisor's handy City Guides app which in the middle of the maze of the Gothic area was invaluable. Service was very good and made for a very pleasant evening. If I'm honest there are nicer restaurants in Barcelona but for a good solid meal that won't break the bank, this does the trick.
