A decent local restaurant

We were advised by our agent that the Sant Antoni area was now home to several up-and-coming restaurants. Maybe we didn't look hard enough because this was the first half-decent place we found after 30 minutes or so searching. The food was fine if simple, the service good and not intrusive and... read more

The location was recommended by another restaurant owner who goes there for lunch. Given this recommendation and the other reviews it seems as if the restaurant has two sides: good for lunch, mediocre for dinner. Slow service, dark/unfriendly interior, ok-ish food, smell of chlorine / detergent. There's better restaurants in Barcelona, and they're literally just around the corner.

Fantastic oldfashon decoration, looks like a restaurant with history. The food is great too. Typical catalan cousine. I will come back for sure!

As soon as you walk into this special place you feel like you are getting back in time. Special restaurant with that artist feeling around you. Food is great and staff very friendly. We loved the bill too. Thank you guys and owner for the drinks offered. We will certainly be back. Extra cool evening.

After a week of tiny tapas bars, we were craving a sit down meal at a restaurant. We chose Can Lluis from the tripadvisor reviews, wanting to go somewhere away from the main tourist traps. The clientele were mainly locals. Service was prompt and efficient - not a lot of English was spoken but enough to get by. The olives... More

"Confusing" menu. I ordered two plates on separate dishes, and later on i discovered they were in the menu with other names, but same plates and i could have paid less, getting more food to taste... That would have been good to know when ordering, not after... I even felt a bit ripped for this... Service was average, with the... More

The restaurant was recommended my hotel staff. She assured me that it was a restaurant for locals, not tourists. I ordered the monkfish which was fresh and delicious! The restaurant staff seemed to know everyone who came in to eat. So it is definitely a local restaurant.

We made an effort to find this place, it is not in a very Spanish area if you walk from the market, but once inside you truly are in a well used Spanish restaurant. It is said to be open for lunch at 1:30, we arraved 5 mins. later to find it half full. There is a menu del dia,... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch today on the recommendation of a tour leader who lives in Barcelona. The waiter gave us the dinner menu to order from. He gave a menu del dia to the locals who sat down beside us. Unfortunately, we had already ordered so it wasn't possible to order from this menu. The food was unimpressive... More

We had a very enjoyable meal here. We stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking for another and decided that this restaurant looked great from the menu. The food was traditional fresh fish meals. It seemed like a family run traditional restaurant with many local customers that gave a great friendly atmosphere.

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.
