We went here for lunch on two of our 4 days in Barcelona! The three course meal was delicious, reasonably priced, healthy food. The staff were very welcoming and we felt very "at home" here. It is in a tiny alley way, and if you are not looking for it, you won't encounter it. If you are in the area,... More

Ate here during a trip to Barcelona. The food was great for the price and the place was full of locals during lunch! Would recommend getting the set menu which includes drinks as it's the best deal.

We were looking for a little place to eat lunch yesterday and chanced across Merce Vins in the Gothic area of Barcelona. It had a good looking menu so we popped in and took a seat at the bar which is where we like to eat, only to be told it was "reserved". Rubbish! Oldest trick in the book to... More

This tiny place is in a small side street and its very popular during lunchtimes. Despite some TA review statements this place is actually open in the evenings but only serves tapas then. We decided to try it one evening. There were only a few people there, and the owners were running the place that night, the wife in the... More

We made an effort to find the best restaurant for our last dinner in Barcelona this weekend. The idea was to reservate a table in advance, but we decided to stroll through the Gothic area. We found Mercé Vince and checked it out on TA. It was excellent! Very good food and superb service!!! We were more than pleased! Very... More

Tucked away on a side street on the Barri Gothic, this is a lovely locals' tapas bar. Great authentic atmosphere, friendly staff and yummy food. If you're a cheese fan, don't miss the cheese platter - it's to die for.

Tiny little hole in the wall with very good Trip Advisor rating, so we thought we'd try it hoping that it might be a surprise. It wasn't. The staff was very good, but the kitchen was a disappointment. In the end, it's always all about the food.

We happened upon this place after visiting the nearby café where Picasso frequented. What a find, we had a really great and very reasonably priced lunch, all freshly cooked and served by the lovely friendly ladies. They even gave us a free taster plate of the delicious black rice. Couldn't rate it more highly. Fantastic. We will definitely be back.

Had a late lunch here, the place was almost full. The usual "Menu del dia" daily menu had less available choices than in a lot of places, but everything we tried was really delicious. The drinks were included in the price, even the second beer I asked for. Really good value for the level of food. Just make sure you... More

I was there 5 nights this was best meal we had. Impeccable service, you can tell its great because its full of locals at lunchtime. The salad with raisins and goat cheese was the best and the flan is also great. Wish I had discovered this sooner, would so go back here if went to Barcelona again. Left a tip... More
