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

We had a lovely lunch at this restaurant. We stumbled across it after sitting at another restaurant where we were totally ignored! 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...

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...
