Good Pizza and Steaks

I dinned at this establishment twice while staying in Barcelona and was impressed with the food both times. The pizzas are good and the steaks were extremely flavorful, you can't go wrong either way.

I've chosen this restaurants because it was close to the hotel I stayed. I had to wait for free table on the street. I agreed to wait around 5 minutes, but i took around 20 minutes. Food was very good, but service was not so good. Some mistakes in order, delays. Next time I'll try another restaurant.

Great Pizzas and delicious sangria. Prefer to seat outside. The place has delicious food and it is a good choice for early dinner

We tried the grilled steak here and loved the smokyness in the meat. The food was plated very nicely and was affordable. Friendly staff. The pizzas were also delicious.

Very pleasant dinner, outdoors. An excellent steak, and my wife's savoury crepe was very good too. Service was attentive and cheerful.

We chose to sit outdoors for a mid-April meal, and El Raco was on our stroll home from a day tramping around Barcelona. Our choices were a crepe and a risotto. Both were light meals (our wish) and the service / atmosphere on Rambla Catalunya were good. Food was promptly prepared, and served pleasantly.

Visited this restaurant that was conveniently situated, had to wait which wasn’t a problem but would have been nice if they acknowledged you were there. Food was ok tasty and hot, Roquefort Pizza and Petit Steak Grill but the service was terrible. The staff just seemed to be running around like mad, obviously not enough on – shame, perhaps on...

A pleasant surprise in downtown Barcelona - a good pizza place. We had a margarita pizza and it was thin crust and tasty. The service was good and theambiance was very good for a pizza place. About $25 for two including a salad, and coffee. Also served us with a complimentary sparkling wine. The menu offered other dishes as well.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
