When ever I'm in center of Barcelona and I want to sit in a nice restaurant for lunch I go to the foro. The food is great the place has a nice atmosphere and the lunch menu give a great value for the price. Highly recommended. Much more then all those turístic Rambla restaurants.

Sparsely populated prior to lunch we requested one of four vacant tables at a window. Refused. They were set for four. Two of the already occupied tables had only two persons. We pointed that out. "Nope!" Seated then at the off/on ramp the servers all use from the bar and kitchen to the tables. Food was just O.K. As we... More

When you think of Argentinian cuisine, you don't think immediately "veggie friendly," but El Foro has lots of fantastic options for vegetarians (and plenty of meat for carnivores too, of course!). My husband and I ate here twice on a recent trip to Barcelona - our first and last nights. The staff is lively and attentive, and the atmosphere is... More

I organized a dinner with 8 more friends. We received very good recommendations from the waiter and shared starters and main courses with "parrillada". Excellent meat which all of us enjoyed. Service was fair and very nice to us

The wait staff were very friendly, we sat outside in the sun and shared a nice bottle of wine, and enjoyed our lunch. Food was good, I had salad and Hubbie had pasta. I used the facilities before...
