We were disappointed with this restaurant. We had previously been to Pampero and thought we would try another Argentinian restaurant. However, this was not a patch on Pampero. I ended up leaving half of my steak which was pretty tasteless. My wife has pasta with pesto which she also thought was pretty tasteless. The service was pretty ordinary too. One... More

I was on my way to the Picasso Museum and made a noon stop. This restaurants has a couple of good point: good location, between the Parc de la Cuitadella (Citadel Park) and the Picasso Museum and Mercat del Born, and good service by Eduardo who was helpful and friendly. The food is ok, the kitchen opens after 1PM and... More

We were looking for a different restaurant which was closed and had a look in at el Foro. Being vegetarian/vegan we were surprised by the amount of options available. For vegetarians, there is plenty of pasta options - ravioli with fillings like wild mushroom, eggplant, spinach & cheese. Also plenty of salads and other things. For vegans there were options...

We had a dinner in this restaurant during our stay in Barcelona. All the things we ordered were great. The atmosphere was also really relaxing. Above all, the prices were not high. So i can recommend this restaurant if you are looking for delicious food, in a well decorated and silente place.

We went to this restaurant because the receptionist recommended to me and my wife. We were asking for a steakhouse restaurant and the experience was excellent!!! The environment was really good and the waitress was very professional. I ate the angus and my wife ate nebraska. It was awesome! We will definitely come back again! :D

Try the mushroom with melted cheese and the croquette starters theyre great. For main course it has to be steak .. But make sure that if you ask medium that they understand you mean medium and not medium rare ... Or play safe and ask well done cos it wont be burnt anyways

We visited el Foro on my birthday for a special dinner. We were seated promptly and the staff was really kind and friendly. I ordered salmon which was done just right, fresh and good. My partner ordered the Kobi-style steak and was a disappointed--the cut of meat didn't seem to warrant the high price tag. We mentioned this to our... More

My experience at El Foro was fine. As noted an average rating. I maybe had been expecting too much based on such higher reviews. I felt the steak was cooked perfectly to my specification medium rare, but it and the accompanying frites were very salty. So much so that the meat was not able to speak for itself so to... More

We sat outside with a few drinks before stepping in for dinner. We went for one of the meat platters to share (2 people, the one with chorizo and potato). I can honestly say this was th etastiest meat I had while in Barcelona. You can taste the quality and the seasoning although basic is just right for my taste.... More
