Hurrying along the streets of Barcelona on the way to a 9 PM concert, we seven Americans knew that our stomachs couldn't hold out until after the performance so we hoped to find an open restaurant along the way - no dice. Inviting restaurants - one after another - were yet to open for dinner. As we rounded a corner,... More

Pizza ok - very thin base so not especially filling. Service not good which seems to be a common theme in Barcelona - a bit curt, unfriendly and didn't bring the dessert and when prompted it took ages. Also took a long time to bring the change after I paid. I can't recommend eating here as the service is not... More

I ate here around 11pm after arriving in town. While i pictured more traditional medditeranean, i was not disappointed! The service was great, atmosphere nice--open and airy and light with classy, sinple decor. I had the veggie pizza, which was amazing--thin crispy crust--and im a pizza fanatic, sometimes hard to please. Great value for the quality of food and drink,... More

We went here late on evening and were totally surprised at the standard of food and service for what we paid. The pizza my wife had was far nicer than what you would get at pizza express and was much larger for about the same price. My burger was lovely.

We were looking at the menu outside when a couple came out and said try it....its very good....so we did. We sat outside and ordered our drinks. We ordered a caesar salad and caprese salad to start and then each ordered a savoury pancake and they were absolutely delicious. I then ordered a sweet pancake which was amazing. Served with... More

We stayed 6 nights with 2 kids in an apartment on the Rambla de Catalunya. This Restaurant was around the corner and a great alternative for the kids who weren't fond of tapas. We ate in twice and also got take-away one night for one of the kids. It is a large quiet open area. We could eat early which... More

Good value and an alternative to all the Tapas Restuarant. Don't expect authentic Italian but the pasta and the burgers were tasty. Ate here our 1st and last day of our 5 day stay in Barcelona.

Me and my partner ate at El Raco on a quiet Sunday evening. The food was ok, but I have nothing good to say about the service. We ordered two pizzas and appetizers with wine and a bottle of water. The appetizers never arrived, and we had to wait for our pizzas for over half an hour. I mentioned about... More

Located in Catalunya, this restaurant is the best I visited in my entire 30 day trip to Spain. The food is great, it has a perfect location and atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and hospitable, the food is exceptional and the setting of the restaurant is very unique. I recommend foodies to visit this great restaurant. Vegetarians should dine...
