Clever use of space.

Good, fresh food, attentive staff and great location. This restaurant is situated inside the market building so has a spacious aire about it. Various international cuisines presented on a clever menu. Portion sizes ok and food quality good.

Crevettes tagliatelle, hamburger, calamari and reverted imperial. The sauce on the burger was mixed with some great sauce and mushrooms. Delicious but service slow.

Potentially interesting concept. The food was OK when it finally turned up but the snappy unhelpful waiter ruined the experience.

Decided to try this one on spec - turned out to a mistake! I'm afraid this is one of those places with lots of rules I think for the benefit of the owners not the clients. We go there 5 mins before our daughter and asked for a table for 3 - sorry no - all diners have to be... More

Me and my friends were searching for a place to have a couple of beers and a light snack and it was the only restaurant open on Monday evening. Definitely worth a visit!

Located in the Santa Caterina Market, this excellent restaurant serves fresh food in imaginative and delicious ways. Dinner starts at 8:00 and no reservations are taken. The bar fills up around 7:00 with those waiting for the dining room to open. We got there about 7:45 and had no trouble being seated. There were a lot of people waiting to... More

In the Santa Caterina market , you can either sit inside or there are tables on the pavement. Very busy place , most of them tourist but not too bad . Great selection of tapas and good wine list . Waiters seem to be quite huddled but the place was rather busy

This cafe is part of the Santa Caterina Market, which is much smaller and less crowded than the La Boqueria Market, so there are fewer tourists and crowds. The food is great. The Carpaccio with Fois Gras is one of the best foods I've ever had. We went three times during our week and found everything on the tapas menu... More

Delicious fresh food, great variety and wonderful atmosphere. Mostly locals eating while we were there. Most seating is a refectory style tables and you meet the nicest people. Sit at the bar afterwards for a coffee and watch the bustle in the restaurant. The market next door is also a treat to walk through. Co-opetition at its best; there must... More

We stumbled on this casual restaurant and bar while sight seeing in Barcelona. What a great find! The food was fresh and delicious. They had an interesting and extensive menu, although they were out of the fish I tried to order. Nevermind, the pasta dish, soup and the dessert I ordered were beyond fabulous... Especially the Lemon Merange Pie. Of... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
